Happy Death Day was one horror film that really took me for a ride and I fell in love with its unique narrative and chilling death scenes. And now that we have a sequel in the form of Happy Death Day 2U things are about to get a lot more intense and the scares are only just beginning.
Watch the freaky new trailer below:
Here’s the full synopsis:
Two years after the events of the first film, Teresa ‘Tree’ Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) unexpectedly re-enters the time loop and becomes determined to escape it after finding out her friends are now involved. When she discovers that Lori Spengler, the original killer, has been murdered, Tree must face the new killer in order to uncover their identity and break free of the time loop once and for all.
Director Christopher Landon returns with his much anticipated sequel to Happy Death Day here and the trailer promises to be a really intense ride. Landon’s original narrative was one of the most intense and original pieces of horror that I had seen for a very long time and knowing what he was capable of I was very excited to see what would come next.
And this sequel does look particularly boss. Not only is there a brand new killer on the loose that completely throws the switch on the film’s time loop narrative, but the slashing is a whole lot bloodier and Tree’s deaths are taking a step up in the zany department.
Actress Jessica Rothe is again back in action and the events of Happy Death Day 2U have got her seriously unhinged….which makes sense if you had to relive the same nightmare day over and over and over again. Her performance in Happy Death Day was a great breakout part for the actress and she really shined in the role and now with the sequel she’s got a lot of room to move here.
Get ready for a whole lot more crazy when Happy Death Day 2U arrives in cinemas next year on February 14.
