|Theatrical Movie Poster (1981)|
The film was produced by the same people who did MY BLOODY VALENTINE, and was filmed up in Canada. Anderson was mostly recognized for her portrayal of Mary Ingalls on on the television show LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE. Anderson wanted to find a role that was against type, and she sure pulled it off in the film. The film was directed by J. Lee Thompson, who made such legendary films like THE GUNS OF NAVARONE, CAPE FEAR, and KINGS OF THE SUN. Columbia Pictures released the film to theaters on May 15, 1981.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME is such a great little slasher film and it contains a sharp, clever script, top notch acting, great directing, and some awesome gore and killings! One of my favorite slasher films of all time! Definitely worth checking out, especially during this festive holiday season!!
