    Happy Death Day

    A character fights to survive dying over and over while the audience loses the will to live. The only 'Happy Death Day' is the one that ends Christopher Landon's career.

Yet it still magically sails through a ton of story with ease, never feeling close to it's run time.

    The performances of Goodman, Winstead and Gallagher (who I've been…
