Who Are These Kids? It’s My Bloody Birthday!
Bloody Birthday (1981) kicks off in typical slasher fashion with a couple of teens getting knocked off while trying to get their freak on in a graveyard. In that opening scene, the flick declares itself to be firmly mired in the genre showing off two murders, a point of view shot, and boobs all within the first two minutes. It’s from there on that Bloody Birthday separates itself from the pack. While the opening scene teases the killers, it takes merely moments for the murderer’s identity to be revealed as three ten year olds (Billy Jacoby, Elizabeth Hoy and Andy Freeman). It seems they were all born during an eclipse, and not having a complete zodialogical makeup, it’s turned them into soulless little monsters. They easily get away with murder due to the fact that no one suspects a group of elementary school students, but when brother and sister Timmy and Joyce Russel (K.C. Martel and Lori Lethin) stumble over the diminutive deviants’ dastardly doings, they quickly become the next targets.
