31 Days of Creepy Kids, Day 27: The Eclipse Kids (Bloody Birthday, 1981)

The Eclipse Kids
This is one of the greatest Creepy Kids flick ever as far as we're concerned, and it's mainly because of the premise: three children are born at the height of a total eclipse, and because Saturn (the planet of love?) is blocked by the sun and moon, the babies are born without feelings, which makes them grow up to be cold blooded killers.

Fuck that Police! (That's a song, not necessarily our stance on Law Enforcement.)
Crazy, I know, but damn it all to hell if it isn't interesting too, like the way that Prince of Darkness or Event Horizon used black holes to unleash evil... Anywho, these soulless Saturn kids run around killing at will, because they think it's fun and they feel no remorse whatsoever.

This kid needs either Ritalin, or a 9mm pain pill. Probably both.
There's really not much else to this one. The kids are the draw here, and they do get themselves into all sorts of murderously fun hi-jinks. And for the record, the girl is the creepiest of the three of them. We don't know why. She just is.

Bloody Birthday is cheesy, shameless, early 80's schlocky fun. If Killer Kids intrigue you at all, you have to add this one to your "seen it" list.

Also, it's fun to note that MTV's Julie Brown (NOT the black, British one) is in this, and shows her cans. They aren't bad either.
