HITCHCOCKTOBER at Angelika Film Center: The Birds
October 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm $10.50
Hitchcock’s iconic classic THE BIRDS turns seemingly harmless creatures into some of the most terrifying villains in horror history. Starring Rod Taylor, Tippi Hendren, Suzanne Pleshette, and Jessica Tandy, the story begins as an innocuous love triangle, but turns dark when the characters’ sense of security is slowly eroded by the curious behavior of the birds in the area. Panic mounts as birds murder a chicken farmer by pecking him to death, create a flash fire at a gas station, and swarm over the local children as they leave school.
