Nice, creepy little B-movie,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Birds [DVD]  (DVD)
By rights ‘Deadbirds’ shouldn’t be anything special and, in some ways, it isn’t. However, it is just about better than 90% of the other horror B-movies out there.
It doesn’t have much of a budget (and I don’t recognise a single cast-member from anything else!), but it does make the best of a decently creepy location, as we follow a gang of bank robbers in post civil war America, as they take refuge in an abandoned farm house before they get ready to divvy up the loot and go their separate ways. Naturally, they get more than they bargained for, as surviving the night becomes increasingly difficult. They soon find there’s a particularly nasty presence already there and it’s not going to let them off lightly.
It’s dark and broody and the acting (for what’s needed) is decent enough. If you’re not a fan of horror films then this one probably isn’t good enough to win you over. However, if you’re a fan f creepy little monster movies then you may just want to watch this one. It’s one of those films that’s definitely better value if you haven’t paid to watch it. Rent or see it on TV before you buy.
