    Welcome to the final day of the Alfred Hitchcock Marathon, where we'll be taking a look at The Birds.

    In this film, a woman named Melanie Daniels, arrested for jumping naked into a fountain, follows one of her witnesses to a small town called Bodega Bay, where the all the birds around the town, crows, sparrows, pigeons, seagulls, you name it, start attacking, seemingly for no reason at all!

    This film was…

    A masterclass in chaos and humility. Hitchcock is a master of editing and mise en scène. The Birds shows just how deadly nature proves to be if tampered with while superimposing it with the dangers of repressing female sexuality and expression. Only the great "Master of Suspense" can combine those two seamlessly while simultaneously thrilling us with the ridiculous plot of birds attacking helpless townspeople and titillated socialites. *applause*

    The Birds is yet another masterpiece by Alfred Hitchcock. This is perhaps the best example of how a ridiculously silly plot can make for a great movie if all the right decisions surrounding it are made.

    This is actually pretty scary. I like the decision to go with no score, as it adds a layer of realism to an otherwise ludicrous story. It also adds some great tension in scenes where there really should be none, and of course when…

    Since high school, this has been that one Hitchcock film that I embarrassingly haven't seen. All of my friends keep talking about how scary and great this film is. I love Psycho. Rear Window is economically tense. Even Strangers on a Train works its magic. Still, for the life of me I haven't set aside time to see this film about birds attacking the city. It wasn't out of disinterest. In fact, I wish that I have seen more Hitchcock…

    Ever since we started the Hitchcock unit, my dad has been asking me to watch ¨The Birds.¨ To be honest, I expected it to be much scarier. Halfway through the film I realized why it seemed somewhat slow and not very intense, there was no musical score. This absence of music made the bird screeches during the bird-attacking scenes more annoying and claustrophobic than scary. The lack of score could have been used to highlight the contrast of the quiet…

    This movie was more than great. I really loved it. I wasn't really watching it so I could notice similarities within Hitchcock films, so I didn't notice much. The classroom scene was obnoxious and I wanted the birds to come crashing through the windows and the beginning was a bit slow. Other than that, it was everything I expected it to be and more. Fantastic movie and Hitchcock's walkthrough in this one was adorable.

    I have never been more scared of birds than I am right now.

    Please excuse me while I hide underneath my blankets for the rest of the day as I watch more horror movies to convince myself to be scared of ghosts or clowns rather than birds.

    Good job, Hitchcock. Turning my childhood pets that my mom worked with into death machines that torture and kill people.

    I don't want to go outside now.

    Who knew the end of the world would come via birds? In Alfred Hitchcock's famous movie "The Birds", the director uses his signature themes as well as a crazy plot to create an almost flawless suspense/horror film. Sprinkling his movie with his famous recurring motifs such a a blonde woman, shadows, mother vs. son, and more, Hitchcock creates a fantasy world in which humans become completely powerless in defense against bird attacks that swarm the small California town of Bodega…

    I expected a little more but I bet that was a fault. I thought Alfred Hitchcock, that has to be extremly terrifing. But in the end i was very confused and only a little terrified. I think that this fim can not shock people anymore in todays times. But when it came out it obviously was very scary.
