HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME (1981)
A pretty forgettable slasher flick from the early days of the genre. It's hard to imagine that at one time they could actually get real actors to be in these things but, like in this one, they did get at least a couple. Stars that deaf chick from LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, which always make me look at this like it's some kind of bloody TV movie of the week, plus Glenn Ford who was an old-timer going back to the 30's. The shish-kabob in the mouth murder scene is pretty much the only memorable thing in this and they even put it right on the poster. Filmed in Canada so it has that kinda MY BLOODY VALENTINE feel to it only not nearly as good. I also really hate the music in this thing especially the shitty end theme. Yuck!
