What better place to watch a terrifying film about killer birds than right on the waterfront, surrounded by seagulls who want to steal your pasties?! The Hitchcock classic begins as an innocuous romantic triangle involving Melanie, Mitch and Annie and culminates at the home of Mitch's mother at Bodega Bay, where the characters' sense of security is slowly eroded by the curious behaviour of the birds in the area. At first, it's no more than a sea gull swooping down and pecking at Melanie's head…but once the onslaught begins, there's virtually no letup.
“The Birds not only remains a high point in Hitchcock’s career, but it has managed to evolve with its audience. Haunting and uncompromising, this film is Hitchcock’s vision at its clearest.” Read Helen Tope's film preview.
