‘Happy Birthday to Me’ Being Remade

Just yesterday I was sifting through my DVD collection and came across J. Lee Thompson’s Happy Birthday to Me, one of my all-time favorite ’80s horror movies. The first thing that popped in my mind was “I wonder why this isn’t being remade?” and “I wonder if they remade it, could it be cool?” By an ironic stroke of fate I received an e-mail this morning answering one of the two questions.

Whether it will be a “killer party” once again remains to be seen, but I can see this remake getting a solid treatment. In the original, Virginia is proud that she belongs to a clique. The best students at a private school. But before her 18th birthday, a grueling set of murders take place and her friends are the ones who are falling prey. Could it be her? She suffers from blackouts due to a freak accident one year earlier. We soon learn the truth behind her accident and what is going on…
