So, earlier today on this gloomy, rainy yet humid Friday, I decided to check out the 80's slasher film Happy Birthday to Me, directed by J. Lee Thompson (RIP). Now, I heard of the film but never had a chance to check it out...well so I thought. As I was watching the film, it started to seem familiar so I'm pretty sure that I saw it before.
So, the film is about a girl named Virginia aka Ginny who survives a tragic accident and because of that accident, she has to move away to get special treatment that will block out parts of her memory. Four years later, she comes back in the town she was originally in, before her accident happened & all. Ginny is now a senior at Crawford Academy and surrounded by all her rich, popular friends. Unfortunately for Ginny, she starts to experience black outs days before her 18th birthday. As a result, one by one her friends disappear/die. Ginny begins to wonder if she's killing her friends since she black outs and forgets things. Sounds simple enough?
