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

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

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 some whom I don't recognize that I have seen movies of. I didn't know this was Tippi Hedren's first credited role and only second film she had been in. She is absolutely amazing and stunning here. I don't know why, but I just really adore her character here.

" 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"

"Alfred Hitchcocks classic masterpiece is a scary trip into mother natures play book , a small town , some innocent kids , a budding romance , and some hicks and kooks to round it all out , noone is safe from these relentless menacing ravens from hell. Hitch creates a dark isolated atmosphere and ratchets up the suspense with avian menace from above. Yah perhaps its not as scary as some of todays gore filled monster thrillers but it works a lot better than most with its simple horrifying premise."
