Happy Birthday To Me (1981)

4 / 5

It's actually decent enough, and it's got Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary from Little House On The Prairie) in it which is fun to watch. The story actually focus' around her character Ginny who had a rough upbringing and brain surgery after a car accident. Her classmates start dying off and it's sort of a who-done-it kind of thing but it's done with quite an interesting twist. Ginny keeps having blackouts, could she be the murderer? Things aren't as they seem and it all comes together in a fabulously bizarre ending one won't soon forget. This may not be a classic but it's definitely a worthwhile slasher and interesting enough to please most I would say.
