Happy Birthday to Me (1981) was released as the newly formed slasher genre was beginning to draw first blood. It advertised itself as different from the pack by offering “six of the most bizarre murders you will ever see.” And after watching a head impaled by a shish kabob, viewers may harbor reservations about Middle Eastern cuisine. But America’s sweetheart, Melissa Sue Anderson, stars as the tasty main dish. She plays a young girl on the verge of her eighteenth birthday who’s suffering blackouts and fears she may be responsible for the slew of killings at her high school. Talk about dangerous curves.
