Hoop-Tober 2.0 #23
In my review for Bloody Birthday I wrote a little bit about my history with Happy Birthday to Me, a movie I have been curious about for my whole life. The poster with the barbecue stick have been lingering in my mind since I was a little boy. Now that I have finally seen it, I feel happy and sad at the same time. I am satisfied because I loved almost the whole movie. The death scenes are great, it doesn't look dated as I expected, the killer is awesome* and Melissa Sue Anderson is absolutely PERFECT!
Unfortunately, I hated the ending! I was having a blast watching Happy Birthday to Me, even considering it to figure among my top 5 slasher movies, but the twist at the end, which I won't spoil, was a HUGE let down. In fact, it was one of the most negatively impactating ends I can remember seeing.
