HAPPY DEATH DAY (2½ stars)
Last weekend's box office champ was this slasher movie reimagining of Groundhog Day, with a conceited sorority sister getting stuck in a time loop where she’s repeatedly killed by a masked psycho. More comedy than horror, it’s got a few nifty genre-busting tricks up its sleeve, but it’s hard not to wish it had pushed its premise into nastier, gutsier territory.
