New Blu-ray Release Of BLOODY BIRTHDAY Is Coming!

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

BLOODY BIRTHDAY is one of Horror flicks in the killer kids sub-genre of Horror that stands out. The 1981 film will be released on Blu-ray in the US once again this December, this time from Arrow Video, and in addition to a 2K restoration, the new release will also include a new audio commentary with co-writer/director Ed Hunt and a new interview with co-star Lori Lethin.

The Bad Seed meets Halloween in this deliciously twisted early '80s slasher offering directed by Ed Hunt (The Brain) and starring the always loveable Lori Lethin (Return to Horror High, The Prey). Debbie, Curtis and Steven may seem cute as buttons. But their angelic facade conceals the wicked, murderous streak given to them having all been born under the same solar eclipse. With the grown-ups around them blissfully unaware of their little darlings' homicidal tendencies, the evil brats begin to bump off the adults one-by-one. By gun. By arrow. By cake. Bye-bye! Mixing the killer-kid subgenre with elements of the then-booming slice-and-dice movie, 1981's Bloody Birthday shocks and appalls with its scenes of young children shooting, strangling and bludgeoning their way through the local population. They sure don't (and can't!) make 'em like this anymore.
