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.

Love this movie! Seen it so many times.
Nice effort and original setting... but somehow failed to meet my expectations.
Not bad. Decent actors, some good ideas, cool monsters, and plenty of gore and scares. But I found my attention wavering after a bit.
Cast is terrif & it's a decent idea but..I just don't think it's very good.
