Scary movies are not for everyone

I downright hate scary movies. I can’t handle them. I scare
easily. Even the smallest thing, like a tap on the shoulder, can
scare me. “Happy Death Day” kept me up for three nights in a
row. The movie is about a girl in college who was murdered on
her birthday and continues to live the same day over and over
again, trying to find her killer. It was surprising to find out that

it made over 55 million dollars domestically and over 100 mil-
lion worldwide.

I was creeped out because the killer wore a mask that looked
like a creepy baby face. Also, there was one scene where the
main character was barricaded in her bedroom trying to hide
from the killer when her television starts to glitch out. My
television does the same thing at times and I was really creeped
out by that.

Like all scary movies, there are always jumpscares, suspense-
ful music, dark scenes, scary images, etc. Everyone jumps/

screams when the jumpscare happens. People want to look
away when the music starts playing but they end up watching
the scene. “Happy Death Day” isn’t any different.
However, I didn’t really enjoy watching the movie because
I’ve seen too many movies like this. I really didn’t enjoy it
because the plot of this movie is just straight up unoriginal.
“Happy Death Day” was released in theaters in October. It
will come out in DVD and streaming in early 2018.
