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.

Decent horror flick with some genuinely creepy jump scares. I was pleasantly surprised to find something worth watching on here.
90% of the cast are A practically A-listers and the concept is awesome but I personally was disappointed. The back story of the family should have delved deeper. Zero idea what the crimes of the wife & children were. Why weird demons & not ghosts. Just thought it coulda been way more scary if they focused more on the psychological terror rather than poor cgi. Good enough to watch if ya can’t find anything else!🤷♀️
gets worse as it goes on so stop early if yr skeptical. terribly directed. didn't finish, la
Awful. Took forever and still didn’t get anywhere
It a never ending loop of accrued punishment. Watch all the way through to feel the full amount of dread+hopelessness inside
