|Genre: Horror, Supernatural, Gore, Thieves|
Tagline: There are worse things than dying
Plot: Eerie and atmospheric, this horror film unfolds with a chilling deliberateness that is offset by truly horrific moments. Set in Civil War-era Alabama, DEAD BIRDS follows a bickering band of deserters who have robbed a gold shipment; on the run from the law, they hide out in a deserted mansion to regroup. The estate has a rather unsavory history, however, having housed satanic rituals performed on unwilling slaves, which ended up turning children into sharp-fanged demons. The group's attempts to escape are thwarted by an increasingly aggressive supernatural presence. The talented cast of this brooding period thriller includes Isaiah Washington (ROMEO MUST DIE), Patrick Fugit (SAVED), Henry Thomas (GANGS OF NEW YORK, LEGENDS OF THE FALL) and Nicki Aycox (JEEPERS CREEPERS

The gothic-looking mansion and the giant crops surrounding it, have got to be one of the most freakiest looking locations in recent memory. The film's cinematography is stunning and creates the perfect tone for the film.
A good direct-to-video. It manages to have a solid creepy atmosphere and some decent scares thrown in. 7/10

...Too bad it occasionally lost its hold on me due to a slow pace, not enough going on for what’s going on, weak CGI and a shaky foundation in terms of its paranormal happenings. I didn’t think the film was as great as others made it out to be, but with that said it was still a worthy sit down that I recommend you hit up with both six shooters fully loaded and a bottle of Gin. ...

|I'm speechless, I didn't think that I'd enjoy a film about dead birds very much, though I probably wouldn't have so it's a good thing that the movie doesn't involve more than one dead bird. If you enjoy the occasional scare and hunger for originality, don't miss this one, it works for all audiences (that can handle the gore). |
