Don't be for the birds; buy this movie.

Thanks for the DVD

This was the first movie I saw at a ripe old age of about 5 years old. My mom told my brother and myself we could watch a movie while she did the wash, The Birds was the only movie showing as it had just came out and was being shown until people stopped coming to it. It scared us so much that we left to hide in bathroom about five times. Then would come back out and start watching again until it scared us again.

The Birds

This is one of Alfred Hitchcock's best films. It's really good and kind of scary. I've always liked this one.

A true classic. Might make you weary of birds, but a classic Hitchcock film.
