Happy Death Day 2U
Happy Death Day is a 2017 American black comedy slasher film directed by Christopher Landon, and written by Scott Lobdell. It stars Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard. The film was produced by Jason Blum through his Blumhouse Productions banner, in association with Digital Riot Media and Vesuvius Productions. It follows a college student who is murdered on the night of her birthday and begins reliving the day repeatedly, at which point she sets out to find the killer and stop her death.
Tree immediately wakes up back in Carter's bed, and is unnerved to find the previous day's events repeating themselves. Baffled, she relives the day, this time avoiding the tunnel and reaching the party. However, the masked killer follows her and murders her again. Tree again wakes up in Carter's bed, realizes she is in a time loop, and barricades herself in her room to avoid death. The killer, already hiding inside, murders her a third time.
Waking up, Tree explains the events to Carter. He suggests taking advantage of the loop to identify her killer. She spends the next several iterations trailing people she considers suspects but is killed each time. After waking from a loop where she is bludgeoned, Tree faints and awakens in the campus hospital. Her body shows evidence of recovery from multiple traumatic injuries, indicating she has retained physical damage from her previous deaths. When the killer shows up, Tree escapes the hospital in Gregory's car, only to be pursued and killed again.
Back in Carter's bed, Tree convinces him of her predicament by demonstrating her knowledge of the day's events. Tree admits to harboring tremendous self-loathing, particularly from pushing away her father after the death of her mother three years ago. Tree sees a local news report on John Tombs, a serial killer being held at the campus hospital. Concluding that Tombs is her killer, Tree rushes to the hospital to warn of his escape. Tombs breaks free and nearly kills Tree, but Carter follows and rescues her. Tombs kills Carter before chasing Tree to a nearby bell tower, where she subdues him with a crowbar. Before delivering a fatal blow, she realizes that if she kills Tombs and ends the loop, Carter will remain dead forever. She runs to the top of the tower and hangs herself from the bell rope.
Tree wakes up still in the loop. Horrified, she returns to her room with the intent to run away, where Lori offers her the cupcake again. Tree realizes the previous loop was the only time she had ever eaten the cupcake, and she had died in her sleep. Tree realizes Lori is her true killer. Lori had poisoned the cupcake, but when Tree failed to eat it, Lori used her job as a nurse at the hospital to frame Tombs for Tree's murder. Tree threatens to take the cupcake to the police, but Lori attacks her. Lori admits to also having an affair with Dr. Butler, whose preference for Tree drove Lori mad with jealousy. In the ensuing fight, Tree stuffs the poisoned cupcake in Lori's mouth, then kicks her out of a second-story window to her death.
Filming took place at and around Loyola University in New Orleans, Louisiana, and it lasted 5 weeks. The scenes where Tree awakens in Carter's bed after her death were filmed back to back in a span of two days. The scene after Tree pushes Lori out of the window was supposed to be at the sorority house, but the filming permit was over before production was able to shoot there, forcing the location to be changed into a Los Angeles diner also featured in another Blumhouse production, Split.
"At one point in an old draft of the first movie, I did have a version of [Tree] falling by accident while she was running away from the killer. I think she ran off of a cliff, in an old draft," said Landon of a favorite death he didn't get to do the first time around. "I knew I loved that idea that she's so intensely running from the killer that she's not paying attention to where she's going. So that was a death that I got to use in this movie."
"We had explored in the first movie in a previous draft a little bit more stuff about what was happening to her physically and that all of these deaths were collecting on the inside of her," he added of revealing more about the effect of Tree's injuries on her. "But we felt that the suggestion of that was ultimately more effective than sort of really digging into it in some sort of really big mythological way."
Blumhouse Productions brings you this original and inventive thriller in which a blissfully self-centered co-ed (Jessica Rothe, Utopia) is doomed to relive the day of her murder ... unless she can identify her masked assailant and hopefully stop the madness. If she can't, she will be stuck in an insane loop, reliving the ghoulish nightmare that has become her death day.
That night, Tree goes to the hospital to intercept serial killer John Tombs before he escapes, but is confronted by a police officer who attempts to arrests her for brandishing an axe. Babyface kills the officer and when Tree says she knows the killer is Lori, she appears behind her and pulls her into an elevator to save her, revealing that Lori is not the killer. She tells her that Babyface cannot be Tombs because she just took him in for surgery. As they make their way out, babyface stabs and kills Lori, then chases Tree to the roof, where she accidentally falls to her death. She wakes at the beginning of her loop, and demands that Ryan and his team help her escape it, requiring they test dozens of algorithms. At Carter's suggestion, Tree serves as the group's recorder, killing herself at the end of each day so they can start again. These deaths include electrocuting herself, drinking drain cleaner, skydiving without equipment, and even throwing herself into a wood chipper. Waking up from a loop in which she throws herself from a bell tower, her injuries catch up with her and she faints. Waking up in the hospital, she is greeted by Carter and Dr. Gregory Butler, who was having an affair with Tree before, but now he doesn't recognize her at all. Tree remembers that Lori was having an affair with Dr. Butler so he warns him about her death and sends him to go save her. Tree steals a gun to go after Tombs, only to find Lori already dead. Babyface attacks and Tree shoots him dead. However, a second Babyface appears, forcing Tree to kill herself and Babyface by igniting a set of gas tanks.
There she was, living, dying and restarting the same day over and over again, each time trying to thwart a masked killer. Thankfully, though, she found a way of beating the odds, beating her old nasty habits, beating the death loop and beating her totally mental roommate who kept killing her repeatedly!
In Happy Death Day, a selfish and narcissistic college girl named Tree winds up stuck in a time loop, reliving the events of her birthday over and over again, including her death at the hands of an unknown killer. She eventually ends the loop by outwitting her killer, but also learns to be a better person while falling in love. In the sequel, Happy Death Day 2U, things pick up exactly where they left off. Tree learns that while her loop has been closed, it opened for another student, whose science project gone awry created the original loop. After an accident occurs in which the scientific device in question is used once again, she finds herself back in her original loop, but in another version of her universe where things are different, yet serial killers are still rampant. 041b061a72
