Highly Suspect Reviews: Happy Death Day

0 Submitted by on Thu, 12 October 2017, 10:11

So you take 3 parts Groundhog’s Day, add a healthy covering of 90’s post-Scream slasher films, and lovingly garnish it with Heathers…what do you get? More or less, Happy Death Day. And I mean all of that largely in a good way. Following the travails of a college sorority girl caught up in that Bill Murray-esque quandary (there’s, like, a floating cloud of time loop going around these days or something) only her day keeps ending when she gets murdered by a masked figure. No time to learn the piano or ice sculpture, she’s got to figure out who her killer is, and probably stop being such an awful person herself in the process. While we get that this seems…obvious, we were all rather surprised that we had as good a time as we did. Listen to Chris, Frank, George, and JC break it all down for you. And then go back to the start and do it again. And again. And again…

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
