Bloody Birthday (1981)
I breathed a sigh of relief when I found a stash of new slasher films to watch. Especially since they're from the 80's. The 80's slasher genre will always be my favorite genre of horror. The 80's was the best era for horror ever in my opinion.
Now going into this movie I wasn't expecting much...just eager to watch a slasher that makes me feel at home.
Synopsis taken from IMDb
In 1970, three children are born at the height of a total eclipse. Due to the sun and moon blocking Saturn, which controls emotions, they have become heartless killers ten years later, and are able to escape detection because of their youthful and innocent facades. A boy and his teenage sister become endangered when they stumble onto the bloody truth.
This was as expected, it wasn't very well acted or have a strong story, but it kept me entertained. It was a fun watch. The things I like about it are also the things I don't like. The camp was good but a little too much.
The kills were good and laughable, the whole movie was laughable. If you go into this movie wanting gold don't watch it. If you want to watch a movie that you can laugh at and relax with then watch this. I wouldn't go as far to say I'd buy this movie or own it, but I don't regret watching it.
The gore and acting were weak but that's the kind of things that made movies like that good to us horror fans. Just entertain us and we'll be happy. That's how I am anyway.
1 1/2 stars for me, judging on the movie itself. Entertainment factor would be a 2 1/2 out of 4.
