Storyline

Having survived the farcical but utterly life-threatening events in Happy Death Day (2017), the feisty sorority sister, Tree Gelbman, finds herself in the same college dorm, thankful to be alive. However, this time, it's Carter's roommate, Ryan, who claims that he is reliving the same paradoxical day over and over again, as a mysterious paranoid killer in a single-toothed baby-faced mask with a big kitchen knife has made a habit of murdering him. Under those circumstances, a valiant but vain attempt to face the challenge, once more, will send Tree back to square one, trapped in an all too familiar and blood-drenched time loop. How many deaths separate Tree from a truly happy birthday? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Tree's freefall montage of various suicides, landing her back into Carter and Ryan's dorm room, pays visual reference to the music video of the song that plays over the montage: Paramore's Hard Times where in the music video lead vocalist Hayley Williams, sporting similar attire to Tree Gelbman and blonde hair collapses slowly back into a bed from the roof.

Goofs

Tree tells Ryan she died eleven times, referring to the first film. Actually, she died ten times. See more »

Perfect sequel
19 February 2019 | by JokersHideoutSee all my reviews

Perfect sequel to an innovative horror comedy. Wonderfully balances comedy, slasher-horror, science-fiction & heart-filled drama Plus Jessica Rothe delivers a dedicated performance which makes the experience all the more richer. Stay during the mid-credits for a hilarious epilogue
