Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock is in top form for this classic 1963 horror film!

During a chance meeting at a pet store, lawyer Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor) and Melanie Daniels (Tippie Hedren) cross paths that lead the two nascent “love birds” to a rendezvous at idyllic Bodega Bay outside the urban chaos of San Francisco. However, before their relationship can take flight, the peace and quiet of the seaside town starts to unravel as a mysterious invasion of feathered berserkers besets the town and wreaks havoc on a level not seen before on the big screen!

Hitchcock’s knack for on-location shooting, his brilliance at employing special effects, and his penchant for visualizing psyche-shattering scripts are all in evidence here, combining to make The Birds not only one of the most-unforgettable horror films, but also one of cinema history’s most-enduring movies!
