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

Decent movie... not bad for a rainy night.

not the worst movie I've ever seen. definitely far from the best however. Very reliant on jumpscares. The characters are likeable but the plot just doesn't make sense. it feels like they had too many ideas for this movie and never did anything with half of the ideas they added, feels very unfinished. The name doesn't make much sense and the ending doesn't either. the CGI is great though. the time period.is very interesting. not a whole lot of suspense, it feels pretty predictable. i wouldn't really recommend it.

Decent effects. Too much reliance on jump scares. Pacing issues. Still entertaining
