This has been promoted as a combo of Groundhog Day and Scream, but I only saw one of those reflected in this average thriller. A college coed wakes up on her birthday only to be murdered by a baby-faced stalker. Each time she dies, she wakes up back in the same dorm room and the only way to stop the cycle is to identify the killer. It’s adequately made, but the suspense sequences aren’t especially original or even mildly frightening. The satirical self-aware comic insights (a la Scream) never materialize. It’s slightly fun to watch her solve the puzzle, but there’s little about this film that makes it special.
