Hitchcock classic!

"Why are they doing this? Why are they doing this? They said when you got here the whole thing started. Who are you? What are you? Where did you come from! I think you're evil. EVIL!"

As Hitchcock's career progressed, he created some of his finest work. The Birds is a thriller of reference superiority, and is undoubtedly one of Hitchcock's best films.

Since the last great movies of Hitchcock's "Birds" heralded the destruction and fantasy cinema of the decade of `70. Technicolor, visuals, brilliant production, impressive once again escalating suspense. The kernel of the film we meet a classic conflict of the mother with the wife of her son, a counterpoint that cause unnatural aggressiveness of birds. It is no coincidence that in the final scene ... read more

The very first Hitchcock movie I ever saw.
During my early years on this planet, my dad used to pack our family into the panel-sided Buick station wagon & take us to the drive-in theatre where we were exposed to alot of those 70's campy "when animals attack" movies, like Food Of The Gods, Night Of The Leapus, Swarm, etc...
Goofy escapist fare of whose cheese I ended up developing a... read more

" After watching Psycho I was eager to check out more of Alfred Hitchcock's work in the horror genre. And while Psycho is certainly a classic, I feel that this film is leaps and bounds better. Indeed, one would be hard pressed to find a film more purely suspenseful than this one. It truly is a masterpiece of the genre. It's thick with atmosphere as well and while the bird effects don't entirely hold up today they still get the job done. Another nice touch is the extremely well developed characte"

"Re-watch - April 22nd Unofficial 1963 double feature The print of this was also pristine, and not a single frame was missing. I've got to say though that I remember this film being much more effective when I watched it growing up than it is now. The birds are often cheesy looking, which kills the intensity for me & results in unintended laughs instead. I know for the time they were great, but not so much anymore. On the other hand I got more out of the characters than any previous viewing, so t"

"“A Streetcar Named Marge” (Season 4, Episode 2) ''In the scene when Homer, Bart and Lisa pick up Maggie from the daycare center, babies are perched all over the building, staring at the family and quietly sucking on pacifiers. This is a spoof of the final shot of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds'' Itchy & Scratchy Land (season 6th, episode 4th) '' Hans Moleman being attacked by predatory birds while in the phone booth is a spoof of the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds.''

“By far one of Hitchcock's best. It also needs to be seen on the big screen. You can do that if you're on the East Coast this Sept.

Veronica Cartwright, who played Cathy Brenner in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, is scheduled to appear at the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention, Hunt Valley, Md., at the Hunt Valley Wyndham Hotel, Sept. 18-20. She will be attending a screening of the film, and will be available for questions, photos, and autographs. More info http://midatlanticnostalgiaconvention.com
