Tippi Hedren (MARNIE) and Rod Taylor (THE GLASS BOTTOM BOAT) lead a strong cast as Melanie Daniels and Mitch Brenner. When Melanie travels down to Mitch's family estate in Bodega Bay (bringing a pair of lovebirds with her), a bizarre chain of events begins when she is attacked by a seagull. Soon more and more birds flock and descend on the sleepy hamlet in one horrifying attack after another, each more gruesome than the one before...
With an effective use of flapping wings and ominous bird sounds as opposed to a full musical score, the atmosphere is tense and moody for the whole duration of the motion picture.
The DVD includes the documentary "All About The Birds", Tippi Hedren's screen test with Martin Balsam, the trailer and original ending/deleted scene with original storyboard art.
With Suzanne Pleshette and Jessica Tandy.
