In which there is only one dead bird, and it has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with the plot.
Just finished Dead Birds
. It wasn't horrible. But it wasn't great, either.
A bunch of rogue Confederate soldiers rob a bank, and hide out in an abandoned plantation house. Turns out some freaky bad voodoo shit went down in the house a while back, and it's chock full o' demons.
The demons are pretty awesome... great effects, and some nice creepy imagery.
Plotwise... eh. I fast-forwarded through a lot of rather lengthy scenes of people creeping slowly about whilst carrying lanterns and not speaking at all. Most of the intriguing plot stuff is condensed into a three or four minute Montage Of Voodoo Doom. If only they'd spread that out, I wouldn't have nearly dozed off.
Bonus: Henry Thomas was in this. He's a fair to decent actor, considering he rose to fame playing the dorky kid in E.T.
So, eh. Watch this if you want to. I won't try to stop you. However: I rented this mainly because the blurbs on the cover praisingly compared it to a film called Deathwatch
. I can't say enough great things about Deathwatch, so... try to see that instead.
