Typically, the characters in these movies repeatedly go through the same day or event while attempting to figure out how to escape it.

These are the best movies ever made that are built on the intriguing concept of a time loop but still feel fresh and new each time you watch them, no matter how many times you've seen them.

Happy Death Day, 2017

You pick if this is a horror film or a thriller, but the premise is the same: a girl wakes up on her birthday only to find that she has been murdered in the middle of the night.

She dies, but on the morning of his birthday, she wakes up again, only to be murdered once more that night.

Thus this happens multiple times, and each time she is killed in a new way while she seeks to identify her killer to escape the cycle. You might want to see this film more than once because of how engaging the story is.

Early in the film, it becomes evident that this is a special film with an original plot and a fantastical setting. This is the tale of a soldier so close to death that scientists used cutting-edge equipment to track his train as it sped away from the scene of a bombing to identify the perpetrator.

In other words, the protagonist suffers through this ordeal, only to perish in explosions while gathering intelligence on terrorists. However, the film's highly original ending prevents audiences from leaving their seats.

Edge Of Tomorrow, 2014
