If you can’t remember it, we can! Your sci- fi problems solved…
Can you help identify a movie I watched when I was a teenager? All I remember is a possessed young girl charged friends to watch her sister in her bedroom through a spy hole and someone being locked in a fridge. Would love to find out what it is.

I believe this is a film called Bloody Birthday, from 1981. It’s about three children born during a solar eclipse who were “born evil” and go around killing people. At one point they lock a young boy ( who witnessed them moving a body) in a fridge. And the sister of the evil girl gets an arrow to the face on the trio’s titular anniversary. It’s widely available on Blu- ray and DVD.
