In this stellar entry in the small-but-fascinating Civil War horror subgenre, a group of Confederate soldiers who deserted the army after robbing a bank hide out in an abandoned house, but soon find it’s anything but safe. As the night wears on, each group member has visions of the atrocities that occurred in the house, which created some scary Southern spirits. Featuring strong performances by Michael Shannon (BUG), Patrick Fugit (“Outcast”) and Henry Thomas (E.T.), and a script by Simon Barrett (BLAIR WITCH), DEAD BIRDS is an underrated chiller ripe for rediscovery.

Western meets Horror. Surprisingly good, exceeded my expectations.

Visually terrifying. Love it!
Overall, Meh. A good story idea but some scenes were too long, didn't build anticipation and therefore felt boring ...those scenes didn't add to the scariness. In the end wasn't really scary.
