You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
In 1970, three children are born at the height of a total eclipse. Due to the sun and moon blocking Saturn, which controls emotions, they have become heartless killers ten years later, and are able to escape detection because of their youthful and innocent facades. A boy and his teenage sister become endangered when they stumble onto the bloody truth.
During most of my life, going to the video store was one of my favorite hobbies. Even without renting a movie, I would go to the nearest one to stare at the shelves and try to pick my next rent whenever I had the chance. Of course, as you can imagine, the horror section was my favorite one. My father rarely allowed me to rent horror movies though, not because he was concerned with the things I was watching, but because he had this rule that we shouldn't rent "old movies", which kinda explains why I have seen so few of them. One of the horror posters that intrigued me the most during my childhood, had a…
Huge props to Halloween and Friday the 13th, without the classics we would never get all of the copycats. This is one of the best copycats IMO. 3 little grade school sociopath killers. Damn the left and the right would have a field day with this if it was made today. They would forget all about twirking. Billy Jayne as Curtis was a scene stealing boss. You might remember him as the horn dog brother in Just One of the Guys. There is also some fantastic nudity, a very young American Ninja, and Jake minus the Fatman in a small role. The film works best when the 3 kids are doing their thing. The film loses some steam when Joyce and her kid brother try to figure out what is really going on, but it is still a lot of fun and a great watch.
All her brains are in her bra!
Maybe I've just watched Halloween too many times, but when I first started Bloody Birthday I thought I was watching a scene for scene ripoff of the John Carpenter classic. You're first introduced to a murder, then to the teenage good girl of the neighborhood along with her sexier best friend who's father happens to be the sheriff. There's even a scene where the sheriff pulls over to see what the girls are up to when they're walking down the street.
Thankfully it gets better after that, not better as compared to Halloween, but better then just a ripoff. It's a ridiculous film, don't get me wrong, but I surprisingly enjoyed…
I have a soft-spot for killer kid movies and it is almost baffling how I have waited until now to watch Bloody Birthday. Unfortunately, I had my expectations set too high because the movie just didn't do anything for me...well, besides wanting to punch that little girl square in her jaw.
The astrology explanation was sort of goofy as well but it is a product of its time, I would never fault a film for being dated because at one time or another it was significant. Dated films are like celluloid time capsules, and I love it.
I am actually sort of bummed out now, I was really hoping to like this movie.
"What are you, some kinda little ghoul?"
Yes, yes they are. Bloody Birthday follows three 9yr old ghouls who are on a killing spree. They kill cops, teachers, and teens who like to have sex in public. Obviously they are little devils so they don't hurt people with their fists, instead they use things like guns, baseball bats, and jump ropes. The kills aren't particularly brutal but seeing these evil looking kids pull them off is kinda fun.
Bloody Birthday's ghouls are actually well cast and you'll hate the little bastards too. Some of the stuff they do is kinda funny too, like when the little girl in the group runs a 25cent peep…
This is so goofy but soooo charming, if you got a heightened suspension of disbelief you'll have a lot of fun with this original and wickedly humorous horror film.
Plus those kids are creepy as fuck.
Taken as a “straight” slasher, it’s easy to see how Bloody Birthday, from 1981, could prove a disappointment. For one, it’s not particularly bloody. For two, there is no mystery about the killer. And it has that After School Special vibe and aesthetic.
And yet, that is why it’s so freaking hilarious.
Delivered during a solar eclipse, three suburban California kids are just plain born bad. The bad juju comes to roost right before their collective 10th birthdays. Though they start off murdering a young couple copulating in a cemetery from an unseen vantage, the rest of the trios crimes are done in plain, banal sight. When his daughter first lures the sheriff to get baseball batted to the head,…
This only works if
Everyone involved in the
Plot is rock stupid.
Il miglior film di bambini assassini di tutti i tempi, spanne davanti alla concorrenza, punto.
This is exactly the kind of horror that I love. These kids are all born during a solar eclipse, so they don't have a conscience. Sure, why not. But, the creators really went for it, these kids are Evil. I had so much fun watching this, I couldn't predict a single thing. Original, and well made. I need this for my collection.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
After watching kids getting murdered yesterday in "Clown", it seemed appropriate to turn the table with this one after receiving the blu-ray from the Severin sale.
One of my favorite slashers, this lets kids go on a murder spree "just for kicks". The child actors are all pretty good and I love how the movie just goes with the idea that these kids were just born without a conscience and empathy, who find joy in murdering people, even their own family.
After years of skipping this one because I thought it was an alternately titled HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME for some reason I finally watched it for the first time... and I love it! You can never go wrong with kids who kill, and these little fuckers are terrifically terrible little shits. Toss in some bloody bits, ample nudity, and the realization that astrology has all the answers and you have a near slasher gem...
... if only it didn't drop the ball by not killing the little shits in the end.
Well acted and nasty little horror flick probably would never be made today. It's a surprisingly good mix of the slasher and killer kids subgenres.

80s slasher mixed with killer kids. Joy.
