Episode 47 – The Birds

Time to take a look at a beloved classic from the “Master of Suspense” Alfred Hitchcock! Choosing one of his movies to talk about is hard enough, but doing it justice is harder still. Academy Award nominated and Golden Globe winning, lauded by The American Film Institute and selected by the Library of Congress as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”; The Birds is quite simply a masterpiece of fright film-making. But it is so much more than that as well!

We discuss the character development, dialog, special effects and challenges of production; but also find time to raz Lee for having never seen it before, ponder what music we would like to be murdered to, enjoy another great beer from Skookum Brewing, give some shout outs to The Horror Movie Art of Rob Birchfield, play a rousing game of FMK with various characters from the film (human and avian) and just generally do our best to disrespect the source material as always!
