Horrorfest 2019 Presents: Happy Birthday To Me (1981, J. Lee Thompson)


One thing I have learned from 1980s slashers is that the goofy ones are often the most fun. Happy Birthday To Me is kind of ridiculous, has plenty of reliable kills, and it nails the ending. Sure the acting is cheesy and I don’t know if parts of the movie made sense, but that is all part of the charm of such a movie. I didn’t view this on Halloween night because it would inform my brain or make for a life changing viewing. I watched it to unwind from a long day at work, crack a beer and settle in for half way decent entertainment.

Sadly the copy I found at Half Price Books did not contain any bonus features. I would have loved to see behind the scenes footage and even watch director’s commentary. Oh well. I still recommend this movie, although I have seen better on Halloween and this was a last minute viewing and purchase. I might plan better for 2020.

Horrorfest 2017: Dead Can Dance!

Go Zombie Michael, Go!

Okay enough Friday the 13th homage titles. If you have not listened to the band Dead Can Dance, do so. Anyways its time for more horror films, as I have fallen into the old habit of viewing them every year. Plus writing reviews, which I plan to do much faster this time. My public library (three separate branches in town) has enough to get me started, and I am finally making the switch to Blu Ray after years of slumming it with DVD’s. So for my few readers, time to get scared…again.

PS: Long overdue reviews being written now. Also unfortunately this one was a rare bust due to life issues, lack of streaming, etc.
