The Reviews for Happy Birthday to Me (1981) 1080p

Reasonable slasher with a silly finalé that takes the cake!Reviewed byBA_HarrisonVote: 7/10

With seasoned pro J. Lee Thompson behind the camera, well known TV actress Melissa Sue Anderson in the lead role (hoping to make the transition from the small screen star to movie star), and veteran actor Glenn Ford giving able support, Canadian slasher Happy Birthday To Me is a far more competently made film than many of its contemporaries: the direction, cinematography, editing, lighting and acting are all top notch.

Unfortunately, it is this very slickness, along with the rather convoluted plot, lack of gore, and very silly finalé, that prevented this from being as enjoyable as I had hoped; I guess I just prefer my 80s slashers to be simpler, cheaper, nastier, and just a little more willing to shock!

Anderson plays Virginia Wainwright, newest member of the 'Top Ten', a clique of rich kids at exclusive private school, The Crawford Academy. After a game of chicken almost results in a terrible accident, Virginia begins to have flashbacks to a similar incident which claimed the life of her mother and left her with terrible injuries to her brain. When a gloved killer starts to stalk and kill the 'Top Ten', Virginia begins to wonder if she is the person responsible for the grisly murders...

Thompson, the director of highly regarded classic Cape Fear, puts his obvious skills to use, making the most of the silly script and delivering some well executed scenes of mayhem: the road race at the beginning wouldn't have looked out of place in a modern action movie, whilst the first death is worthy of an Argento giallo. However, the plot is so silly that even a skilled director like Thompson, with over thirty years experience, struggles to hold things together. The film eventually becomes a mess of disappointing gore-less deaths (the MPAA apparently cut some of the bloodier moments before its original release) and silly red herrings, and at times it also feels rather restrained (there is no nudity, despite there being the obligatory shower scene).

Thankfully, there is a sufficiently twisted ending, with the manky murder victims assembled around a table to take part in a macabre birthday party, although the final revelation is so daft that any suspense or terror is quickly dissipated.

After Happy Birthday To Me, Anderson returned to TV, Ford was given flack from critics for his appearance, and Thompson's career went downhill (King Solomon's Mines, anyone?); despite all this, the film isn't THAT awful, and should be of some interest to fans of the genre, if only for the infamous shish-kebab scene that featured on the excellent poster.

5.5 out of 10, rounded up to 6 for IMDb.

Very Good Horror Movie!Reviewed byProPlayer812Vote: 7/10

Happy Birthday To Me is a very good horror movie. Made in 1981, this thriller of a horror movie stars Melissa Sue Anderson and Glenn Ford as the most notables. The movies starts out with a bang and doesnt quit. Great plot, Killings, Settings, Atmosphere, Direction and a very well written story line. This movie is in the vein of some Italian Horror films. What can I say?? A very good movie that needs to be released on DVD!!

One of the better 80s slasher flicksReviewed bypreppy-3Vote: 7/10

I saw this when it came out in 1981 and loved it. It still holds up 20 years later. Melissa Sue Anderson and her friends are stalked by a killer at Crawford Academy. Who and why? In many ways this is a standard by the numbers slasher film, but it has fairly good acting (with 2 exceptions), a very good script with a few neat twists and turns and some very inventive (and bloody) murders. Also there's a VERY graphic brain surgery sequence. As I said the acting was OK except for Anderson (miscast and really bad) and Glenn Ford (he looks very embarassed to be in this). Still, it's an enjoyable horror film with a great birthday party at the end. My only real complaint--why are Anderson's friends all so obnoxious? You want them to die! Be aware--there are two versions of this film. Both are R-rated, but one is slightly gorier than the other--unfortunately, they're showing the tamer one on cable.
