About the Movie

Get ready for a taut mystery-shocker that will keep you at your wit's end and at the edge of your seat. Popular high school senior Virginia Wainwright (Melissa Sue Anderson) survives a freak accident, but suffers from memory loss and traumatic blackouts. As she attempts to resume a normal life, something terrible is happening - her friends are ruthlessly murdered one-by-one. Will she be the next victim or is she the killer? The terrifying truth is finally uncovered at Virginia's 18th birthday party and you're invited.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A cult favourite to many due its black sense of humour and nonsensical ending, Happy Birthday to Me will be a bewilderment to others for exactly the same reasons. – John Noonan, FILMINK (Australia), Feb 10, 2016

Good Down Home Horror

This is not your guts hanging out, blood on the walls,ripping bodys apart and spreading them all over the floor movie. This is how they were made back in the day when fear was the way of horror, and who did it was the final chapter. This is a really good horror flick. I first saw this in a movie theatre when I was young. I am glad to see that we can still enjoy a good horror film. Get ready to enjoy a good twist... in more ways than one.


I've not seen this movie in years..., that is until I saw recent clippings of it on youtube. Even to this day, its still a bit "TOO SHOCKING" to imagine a young Lauren Fenmore~Baldwin(Y&R) as an envious sibling rebellious serial killer, WoW!


This is a good movie even though it is really scary! So scary wen tha dead body dropsfrom the library ceiling!! Had nightmares 4 two days!
