Actress Melissa Sue Anderson, who had garnered childhood fame for her portrayal of Mary Ingalls on the television series Little House on the Prairie , was cast in the film's lead, marking her major feature debut.
Happy Birthday to Me began production in early July At the helm was the British director J. Lee Thompson , famous for the classic Cape Fear Thompson had actively been looking to direct a thriller, and became attached to Happy Birthday to Me.
In the press pack he stated, " What attracted me to this script was that the young people stood out as vivid, individual characters.
The difference between a good chiller and exploitative junk, at least in my opinion, is whether or not you care about the victims.
Thompson would later direct the Charles Bronson thriller 10 to Midnight , which featured more exploitative material than Happy Birthday to Me.
Apparently Ford was unpleasant on the set. Dupuis later did the duties on another bigger budget Canadian slasher, Visiting Hours , but left the production for undisclosed reasons.
Ironically, in an issue of Fangoria from , Burman criticizes the level of gore in films at that time. Happy Birthday to Me finished filming in September five months after the release of Friday the 13th.
Much of it was shot in and around Loyola College in Montreal , while the drawbridge scenes were actually filmed in Phoenix, New York , just outside Syracuse.
The whole town of Phoenix came to watch the dangerous stunts, where a total of fifteen cars were junked, and one stunt driver was hospitalized with two broken ankles.
The bridge itself has since been removed and replaced by a bridge further to the north. Director Thompson became known for tossing buckets of blood about on the set of the film to increase the on-screen gore; according to producer John Dunning , with the assistance of special effects man Tom Burman, Thompson "would be splashing blood all over the place.
The film's ending was changed to hide the fact that the script was being rewritten so late in production. Bo Harwood and Lance Rubin provided the film's score.
Syreeta , one-time wife of Stevie Wonder , provided the eerie closing track, composed by Lance Rubin that plays over the credits. Columbia reportedly put as much money into promoting the film as it cost to make.
The promotional materials for the film boasted its numerous unusual death sequences as "Six of the most bizarre murders you will ever see.
Dunning and Link didn't like the advertising campaign that Columbia Pictures had planned; they thought it should have been more subtle and worried that it might put off as many people as it attracted.
They were concerned that only a handful of the murders in the film were truly bizarre and that the audience might feel cheated.
Columbia Pictures really pushed the promotional manual for Happy Birthday to Me , which was jam-packed with ideas for cinemas to promote the film.
Although it is not clear how many picture houses really embraced the film's promotion, some of the more colorful ideas were to stage a mini-recreation of the film's final scene without the bodies , but with a butchered birthday cake with crimson candles surrounded by glittering birthday party hats, all to be set upon a fake coffin.
People celebrating their own birthdays were encouraged to bring family and friends with incentives, such as T-shirts and party hats.
They also suggested having a member of staff, dressed in funereal black, preventing anyone from entering the auditorium during the final ten minutes.
Those in line would then be offered " a bite-sized slice of Virginia's birthday cake " from the concession stand.
The promotion manual also had lots of ideas for radio disc jockeys to promote the film, including a special 'scream in'.
Callers would be asked questions such as, "'How would you react if you went to a birthday party … and you were the only person at the dinner table who was still alive?
The manual also encouraged the DJ's to attend dressed as funeral attendants and give each girl a white lily and each boy a blood-red carnation.
The film was also advertised with trailers both at the cinema and on TV. Most trailers culminate with a birthday cake being split with an axe, although an axe does not actually feature in the film itself.
The movie has been done with professionalism, but in the end, like The Fan , Happy Birthday to Me is so much bloodletting, all of it in vivid color.
Candice Russell of the Fort Lauderdale News praised the film as a "more than competently made chiller," adding that director Thompson "plays out the scenes where we anticipate mayhem like a virtuoso violinist.
Movie historian Leonard Maltin gave the picture a "BOMB" rating - technically, 1 out of a possible 4 stars - noting that "Glenn Ford must have been desperate for the work, or else doing the director a huge favor.
AllMovie gave the film a mixed review, writing, " Happy Birthday to Me stands out from the slasher movie pack of the early '80s because it pushes all the genre's elements to absurd heights.
The murders, plot twists and, especially, the last-minute revelations that are dished up in the final reel don't just deny credibility, they outright defy it.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released Happy Birthday to Me on DVD in with an entirely different, uncredited musical score that diverged from the score used in the original cut.
In , the film made its premiere on Blu-ray through Mill Creek Entertainment on a double-feature disc paired with the original When a Stranger Calls ; this release, like the DVD, features the original musical score.
On 12 December , the United Kingdom-based home media company Indicator Films released a region-free two-disc Blu-ray and DVD combination package, which featured promotional materials, a commentary track, and both the original and alternate musical score.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida — via Newspapers. Virginia Wainwright is a spirited young woman who has returned to a private school having survived a deadly accident and regenerative brain surgery.
She is proud that she belongs to the Top Ten - the school's inner circle with the best students - and attempts to resume a normal life.
But her friends are falling prey to a grueling series of murders, and soon there will be no one left to attend her 18th birthday party.
Could it be her? Striving to rekindle the memory of her nightmarish accident, Virginia suffers from memory loss and traumatic blackouts.
We soon learn the horrible truth behind her accident and what is going on before her birthday party This is the story of Ginny, the aftermath of a car accident she was involved in and that cause her mother's death.
It all started going bad before that, divorced parents, living with an abusive mother, Ginny wasn't popular, didn't have any friends, all in all a childhood to forget.
Due to the car accident, she undergone extensive brain surgery, the consequence was frequent blackouts. Once at the Crawford Academy, she finally started getting along with the popular kids but not for long because they all started to mysteriously disappear.
Who's to blame, are Ginny's blackouts related to this events?? I consider this to be a very good slasher movie. The cast is as good as it gets in this genre.
The killings are original and imaginative. The death of Dr. David Faraday Glenn Ford is particularly bloody and Ginny's brain surgery is also pretty graphic and worth watching.
The only negative aspect is the exaggerated amount of "twists", it is a good plot but taken a little to far in my opinion.
