Dead Birds

Dead Birds

Directed by Alex Turner

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.

A group of Confederate soldiers who deserted the army hide out in a haunted mansion.

Cast: Nicki Lynn Aycox, Henry Thomas, Isaiah Washington, Patrick Fugit, Michael Shannon
