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.

SOOOOO generic, painfully slow with basically zero story and utilizes literally every typical horror trope.

Worth a watch! Twists and turns and plenty of jump scares.

A promising start. Good acting. The plot didn’t make much sense. It fizzed out at the end. Why does Michael Shannon have the same facial expression in every movie he’s in?
