A UK trailer and poster have arrived for the upcoming Blumhouse horror Happy Death Day, and while we’re 98% sure that they’re identical to the US one, it definitely looks like a fun time and there’s confirmation of the UK release date: 20 October.

And here’s the poster:

“Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, Whiplash) produces an original and inventive rewinding thriller in Happy Death Day, in which a college student (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.

Happy Death Day is directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) and written by Scott Lobdell and Landon.”
