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.

Initial Thought: I figured I should check out a supposedly reliable classic that I've never seen. I always enjoy a good Hitchcock film. I really should have seen this one already. I'm such a slacker. Better late than never though.

Characters/Acting: Some of the actors here are Hitchcock regulars. I'm really only familiar with a few like Tippi Hedren or Veronica Cartwright. There are s... 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

30 Days of Horror (30 movies items)

"Day 5: Favorite horror director He's not really a horror director and I'd say my more genre appropriate choice would be either Romero, Carpenter, Tod Browning (just because i frickin looooove Freaks and Dracula) or even Miike. But really the reason I decided to put Hitchcock here was Frenzy, Psycho and the Birds. Particularly Frenzy is my personal favorite and I chose that for the next section. Psycho is such awesome and pure horror that Hitchcock deserves to be considered somewhat of a horror "

"October 24 "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 the cause of all of this. I think you're evil. EVIL!" I'm not gonna lie, this is probably one of my favorite Hitchcock movies. It took a premise as silly as birds attacking a town into a legitimately suspenseful movie. The scenes with the birds are just as effective as they were today despite the effects looking "
