We love, love, love birthdays and can’t wrap our heads around why people might not — but this trailer for Happy Death Day definitely adds fuel to their fire.

In the trailer, a college-aged girl, Tree (Jessica Rothe), wakes up after what looks to be a one-night stand, then proceeds to celebrate her birthday. But the celebration is cut short when a masked attacker kills her. Yikes. It doesn’t end there though, because Tree goes on to relive the day over and over again.

Think of it like a horror version of Groundhog Day!

Soon, Tree starts using her repeated days to try and figure out who murdered her and why. And we get a glimpse at the many ways she ~temporarily~ meets her end, all with a creepy version of 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” playing throughout. Looks like we won’t be blaring that track on birthdays anymore…

So, our birthday wish for Tree is that she figures out the mystery when Happy Death Day hits theaters on October 13th — you know, FRIDAY THE 13TH — because this is just plain brutal and makes it seem like Bill Murray had it so good in Groundhog Day.
