Guess who’s back? Still DRE... nah we still HMTS and there is no Snoop D.O. Double G promoting this
mutha! We’re back... it’s 2005, alot has changed since our last update which I believe was Spring 2003.
Let’s get on with it... Dead Birds!
Eyes wide shut watching this great flick. Not often you find a direct to video movie in the horror genre that is one for any good but secondly scary. I can atest that both statements are true.
Dead Birds takes us back to the days of the Civil War, a group of bank robers ride into town, do their thing and
end up drawing serious blood. Being chased by the Authorities they take refuge in an empty plantation house
while they wait out a storm before heading south to Mexico. During the night the gang members each start
having strange visions of things that at one time happened in the plantation house. Add to this the fact that none
of them trust each other and they have just stole a whole lot of gold which is to be split ‘equally’ once they make it to Mexico. Insanity follows...and things are not what they seem.
Dead Birds doesn’t explore any new ground, we have all seen the group of criminals angle before where they
are to split money and don’t trust each other but the haunted plantation and the effective cheap scares make this one worth while.
