An unredeeming waste of time, BLOODY BIRTHDAY gets off to a dull start as Ferrer delivers three infants almost simultaneously during a total eclipse of the sun. Ten years later the terrible trio (Jacoby, Freeman, and Hoy) go on an inexplicable murder binge, killing almost everyone in the
community. A real bore, with the director seemingly incapable of creating suspense. Killings simply occur, with no buildup and no rationale, and the evil children never generate any menace (although Hoy does have a disconcerting gleam in her eye). Originally shot in 1980.
