12 Reasons Horror Fans Need To See "Happy Death Day"

Today is the first day of the end of your life. Tomorrow as well. Catch Happy Death Day, from the people who brought you Get Out, in cinemas 20 October.

1. First off, let's just appreciate the killer title art that takes us back to the prime of creative horror posters, the '80s.

2. Like a classic teen slasher comedy should, our film follows a cute college coed. Her name is Tree.

3. She lives that typical American sorority girl life.

4. But as horror fans know, this means she's about to have big problems.

5. On the night of her birthday, Tree is murdered by a freaky masked assailant wielding a butcher knife.

6. Only for our party girl, her death isn't the end.

7. It's just the start to another day...

8. ...just like the one before...

9. ...ending in another death day.

10. Now it's up to her to break the cycle by figuring out whodunit.

11. Death Day is a high-concept throwback to the teen horror flick with a heavy dose of fun.

12. It's a refreshing take on the "final girl" trope, with a strong heroine who found the one person she will take a knife to the chest for in order to save them:

Herself.
