For over a decade now, The Psychotronic Film Society of Savannah has been repeatedly named the BEST LOCAL FILM SERIES in annual reader polls. The PFS of SAV shows obscure and/or underappreciated films from around the world every Wednesday at the Sentient Bean (and occasionally on other nights as well). Whether extremely well-made or “so bad they’re good,” their selections are always rare, unique and memorable.

This shameless, low-budget dud is another spin on the whole “birds around the world are coordinating with each other and attacking humans” storyline which began with ALFRED HITCHCOCK’S 1960s horror classic THE BIRDS.
However, this laughable attempt to cash in on Hitchcock’s original (while still boasting some legitimately scary sequences) is hampered by its own terrible script and amateurish actors—including blonde American hunk Christopher Atkins, who earlier starred in the erotically charged Brooke Shields vehicle THE BLUE LAGOON.
See fake birds “attack” real people, and see real birds repeatedly thrown in actors’ faces in extreme slow motion, while terrible mid-’80s drum machine and synth-pop music plays in the background!
Here’s the actual theatrical trailer for this ludicrous piece of campy celluloid trash:
Never released on DVD anywhere in the world, it’s a hoot and a half that at times boggles the mind.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry…
But mostly you’ll laugh at what is legitimately meant to be “terrifying.”
We’ll proudly show an original, long-out-of-print VHS copy of this enjoyable dud from famed schlock filmmaker RENE CARDONA, Jr. (who brought us such sleazy, ridiculous and over-the-top gems as THE NIGHT OF A THOUSAND CATS, ZINDY THE SWAMP BOY, TINTORERA: KILLER SHARK and GUYANA, CULT OF THE DAMNED.
If this looks like your kind of movie, then it definitely is.
