What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Happy Death Day is a slasher movie with fantasy and comedy overtones. The main character (Jessica Rothe) is stuck in a time loop, à la Groundhog Day, suffering a violent death over and over again until she figures out how to break the cycle. Considering the movie's premise and genre, the violence is actually on the milder side. Stabbings happen offscreen, but blood is shown on knife blades, and there's a brief spatter when a character falls from a high window. Characters are also hit with blunt objects and run over by a car. There's also some racy content. Sex among college students is spoken of, though not shown. But a male college student is shown preparing to masturbate to porn (there's a computer image of two men kissing), and a young woman walks naked through the quad (nothing graphic shown). Characters also kiss, and the main character has a short-lived affair with a teacher. Language includes a use of "f--k," plus "s--t," "p---y," "a--hole," and more. Teens talk about drinking and being drunk, but no one is shown drinking. The movie is gleefully aware of its silliness and could be a strong draw for teens; luckily, there's an underlying message about thinking about others instead of just yourself.
