Reviews
Mine: The effects are pretty lame looking by todays standards, but the story is still compelling. Follows the Hitchcock tradition of taking likable, if flawed, people and putting them in situations beyond their control. Good performances all around, but the story dominiates.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Hitchcock's classic about a woman (Hedren) and mass bird attacks that follow her around isolated coastal California community. Not for the squeamish; a delight for those who are game. Hold on to something and watch. Script by Evan Hunter, loosely based on Daphne du Maurier's story. Followed by a terrible TV sequel in 1994.
