The terrific 1980 slasher flick Bloody Birthday is coming to DVD from Severin Films.
Directed by Ed (Starship Invasions, The Brain) Hunt, Bloody Birthday follows three murderous, creepy kiddies (Elizabeth Hoy, Billy Jacoby and Steven Seton) who were all born during an eclipse. Lori Lethin and K.C. Martel star as siblings who know what the Bad Seed Trio is up to, and José Ferrer, Susan Strasberg and Joe Penny appear in smaller roles. A likeable pre-MTV Julie Brown is also onboard, performing an 80’s-style topless dance among other duties.
The kids are great, the script has its share of surprises, and the concept of a slasher film featuring pre-teen killers is an interesting one. Bottom line, Bloody Birthday is a welcome, disturbing and entertaining addition to the Slasher canon. Release date is TBA, so keep your beady little eyes peeled for it.
