Not quite as fun as the original. Happy Death Day 2U gives us a bit of a genre swap. More SciFi film than horror.
We start off the film with someone else stuck in a murder loop. This transitions to Tree in an alternate reality in another murder loop. An alternate reality where her mother is alive and Carter is dating Danielle.
The cause of the loops is explained. It’s ok. But I would have enjoyed it more if there was no explanation and the phenomenon hit different people. Almost like It Follows.
Still this was a fun film to watch. I hope they can make a third film since the after credits scene leaves it wide open for another.
