Multimedia(VHS - NTSC)



Nothing equals The Birds for sheer terror when Alfred Hitchcock unleashes his foul friends in one of his most shocking and memorable masterpieces. As beautiful blonde Melanie Daniels ("Tippi" Hedren) rolls into Bodega Bay in pursuit of eligible bachelor Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor), she is inexplicably attacked by a seagull. Suddenly thousands of birds are flocking into town, preying on schoolchildren and residents in a terrifying series of attacks. Soon Mitch and Melanie are fighting for their lives against a deadly force that can't be explained and can't be stopped in one of Hollywood's most horrific films of nature gone berserk.

Featuring 370 trick shots, The Birds required nearly three years of preparation due to its technical complexity and was responsible for numerous innovations in special effects and sound. The 32 separate shots in the final scene represent the best examples of Hitchcock's directing talent.
