This winter you’ll be able to relive the story of a girl, reliving the worst day of her life. Universal Pictures has set a home box-office release date for the fall thriller “Happy Death Day,” where a college student must relive the day of her murder over and over again.

The film is available on Digital in 4K Ultra HD and standard definition as well as via the all-new digital movie app Movies Anywhere starting on January 2, 2018, and it will land on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand January 16, 2018 ($29 on Amazon). If you pick-up the film on Blu-ray, DVD or Digital you can be one of the first to see the never-before-seen alternate ending, some deleted scenes, and get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film.

The thriller opened at number-one at the weekend box-office back in October, after pulling in $26M during its debut. The film went on to make almost $55M domestically, and over $88M worldwide for the studio.

Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, The Purge) produced the thriller centered on the blissfully self-centered co-ed Tree (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) who is doomed to relive the day of her murder unless she can identify her masked assailant. If she can’t, she will be stuck in an insane loop, reliving a ghoulish nightmare that has become her death day.

Happy Death Day was directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) and written by Scott Lobdell. Israel Broussard (Fear the Walking Dead) and Ruby Modine (Shameless) also star in the film.
