DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Mystery Comedy (Dark) - Like the first film, this is more of a dark comedy with horror elements than a straightforward horror film, and this time around there's a stronger science fiction element as well. All of the principal actors from the first film return. While rated PG-13, there are some intense moments of violence as well as language and mature themes unsuitable for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average ...a passable way to throw away 100 minutes if you're willing to turn off your brain and pretend it's making sense. ...Whatever pleasures this comedy-tinged horror/thriller may have to offer, coherence and intelligence aren't among them. Halfway through this sequel, I gave up trying to follow the narrative.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average More a geeky '80s-style high school film than horror, "Happy Death Day 2U” puzzlingly gives up on all the strengths that made its predecessor an appealing watch. Throughout this meandering mess, my mind wandered off ...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good Picking up immediately where its predecessor left off, the infinitely headier and entertaining Happy Death Day 2U sees Trish dropped into a multiverse murder mystery rooted in experimental physics.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When last we left Tree, she saved herself from a certain death at the hands of her roommate Lori (RUBY MODINE, Showtime's Shameless) as she kicked the psychopath out of the Kappa Nu sorority window. Tree's never-ending birthday was FINALLY over, and she managed to start an entire new life...swearing to never repeat her old mistakes again.

Or so she thought.

No sooner has Tree said goodbye to the endless loop and begun a promising new relationship with Carter (ISRAEL BROUSSARD, The Bling Ring) than she realizes that solving the puzzle of her bizarre murder has had unintended consequences-on a scale that will send shockwaves through the multiverse.

Carter's roommate, Ryan (PHI VU), whose fascinating ability to always be in the wrong place at the wrong second, has spent his college years building a machine designed to prove that time can be slowed down to the molecular level. Alongside his fellow aspiring engineers Samar (SURAJ SHARMA) and Dre (SARAH YARKIN), Ryan and team are this close to perfecting the Sisyphus Quantum Cooling Reactor (SISSY) and becoming candidates for a Nobel Prize (or blowing up Bayfield University and everyone within a 100-mile radius, whichever comes first).

When Tree wakes up to find that it's Ryan's meddling with the natural order that has brought havoc to every dimension, she must rally the troops-including Kappa house president Danielle (RACHEL MATTHEWS)-to get to the real source of the time jumps and fix it for good. The only problem? Tree's stuck in a parallel version of her actual world. For good and bad, everything is slightly askew, and Tree's wondering if she's better off here or back in the life she has always known.

As Tree reconnects with lost family, confronts those in her past-including former fling Professor Gregory (CHARLES AITKEN)-and faces new villains, such as Dean Bronson (STEVE ZISSIS), she will realize that she is the only one keeping herself from getting home. It's up to Tree to take the karmic lessons learned from dying 11 times yesterday to rally her inner badass and take down everyone who ever underestimated her.
