It gets even more interesting though! It's directed by Monte Hellman, whose Two Lane Blacktop, The Shooting and Ride in the Whirlwind are in the Criterion Collection. It's definitely worth a watch for the curiosity factor alone, as I can't think of another such similarly odd combination of acclaimed director and shlock. Sadly, I don't believe there is currently a good presentation of the film. I've seen it once on dvd, but it hasn't been given a proper remaster or anamorphic transfer yet. And yes, I assume it will one day by Arrow or Shout.

Then you should check J Lee Thompson's Happy Birthday to Me. Although it's probably not as bad as this one seems to be.

Oh, for sure. If I'm not mistaken Shout released Collector Editions of the first two films, so it's just a matter of time.
And call me crazy but I genuinely enjoyed the first film. Thought it was pretty inventive and daring for its time. No wonder there were so many protests to ban the film back in the day.

I love Happy Birthday to Me! Good, professionally made slasher...and one whose length is one of the factors that contributes to it seeming to be more like a "real" movie than a low budget slasher. I also like the first Silent Night Deadly Night. And don't get me wrong, 3 is probably bad, but there's something about it.

I like the death scenes in HBtM, especially the opening scene murder, and it was fun to discover all the nods Kevin Williamson made to the film in Scream (Sidney's trauma on the death of her mother, the boyfriend climbing her window at night, etc). Well, it's not a "piece of trash" film, but comparing to Thompson's earlier work it's a little bit baffling lol.

I always found the ending to that film incredibly dark. I mean, slashers always end on a dark note, but Happy Birthday To Me was pretty damn bleak.

I felt because of its willingness to explore that darkness, it was above average as a horror flick.

The coincidence of not just "Peaks" actors but Lynch film actors working together on many different projects is something I've noticed a lot through the years. It's uncanny how you'll find not just one but multiple such actors in the same project.

For "Desperate Housewives", Sheryl Lee was originally cast and I believe filmed her scenes as the neighbor who killed herself.

The 1992 miniseries 'Intruders' is close, it has Warren Frost in it & Dana Ashbrook's sister Daphne Ashbrook. Not really worth mentioning I guess, but I started re-watching 'Intruders' again today (after being terrified as a child), & misremembered Mare Winningham's part as being played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, haha.
