The Birds
Drama, Horror, Mystery | 1963 | PG-13. 1hr 59min
CAST: Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren, Jessica Tandy DIRECTOR: Alfred Hitchcock CLASSIC FILM SERIES

A wealthy San Francisco socialite pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town that slowly takes a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people.

Hitchcock prolongs his prelude to horror for more than half the film, playing with audience suspense with comedy and romance while he sets his stage. The horror when it comes is a hair-raiser ...
James Powers, Hollywood Reporter
The true genius of the film, based on a 1952 short story by Daphne du Maurier, is the way Hitchcock makes the malevolent birds seem like manifestations of his characters' mental unease.
