    See, Open Water, this is how you escalate terror. (Ethel Griffies' face after the phone booth scene nearly broke my heart. I was done-in well before Suzanne Pleshette's "final scene.") This thing always was Evil Dead levels of relentless. However, one thing that doesn't hold up is the road to get us to the film's odd central conflict- Jessica Tandy and Crippling Despair, Loneliness, and Depression. Was anyone ever able to keep track of the amount of U-Turns done in…

    Incest-fuelled excellence. It also has the best silent-scream moment in the history of cinema.

    A caw-caw-phonic tour-de-force that for the last time represents, perhaps with the sole exception of Family Plot, Hitchcock working at full-steam with all the resources of his powerful, manipulative, and engaging cinema.

    Every time I finish The Birds, Alfred Hitchcock's coldest and most deeply disturbing thriller, I leave the movie with a ever-growing fear and an unshakable dread. A lot of its detractors cite its choppy special effects, its borderline-comedic premise ("The birds are attacking! The birds are attacking!"), and…

    Doesn't hold up like other Hitchcock films have. It relies a lot on slow build-up but its never fulfilling. There's a big chunk of the movie where Tippi Hendren goes over to Rod Taylor's house to surprise deliver some lovebirds which does not pay off at all. There could have been a much faster way for them to meet. It's not like I don't appreciate a slow burn but there has to be something I am looking forward to.I need…

    Question: why do you hate birds?
    Answer: have you seen Hitchcock's The Birds?

    Conversations that I have at least once a year since that fateful day that led me to watch this movie for the first time.
    It will never be my favourite, far from it, but I always hold my breath in that final scene when Rod Taylor is walking slowly trying to get the car. Birds are terrifying (pigeons aren't even afraid of us anymore??) and no one can convince me otherwise.

    My least favorite Alfred Hitchcock movie that I've seen. Which I've only seen five so it isn't saying much. It's very good and the whole movie doesn't have any music just the sounds of birds chirping and it gives it a very creepy atmosphere. But just didn't hold up like the others

    I thought this movie was a joke. I catched some parts in TV when I was a teenager. But watching the full thing, I realized it was a suspensful, well directed horror movie that everyone needs to watch. Seriously. It's that good.
