Hitchcock. The Birds. Now That’s Some Scary Shit!

Back in 1963 (yes even before this old bird was born), amazingly scary things were happening.  One of those scary things haunts me to this day.  

As a child, I watched the movie “The Birds” directed by the infamous Alfred Hitchcock.   I don’t know if I snuck away on my own and watched this, if my parents allowed it, or if my older sisters enticed me to watch it to scare the bejezus out of me.  Whatever the reason, I watched it!  In it’s entirety.  And to my horror, it sticks with me to this day! 
I’m serious!  I love horror movies.  I love being on the edge of my seat.  But something about this early classic makes me want to crawl in a hole and die a less painful death than being pecked to smitherines by crows.  
So every time I see a vision like I did earlier on my island, I want to crawl back in that hole!  Alfred Hitchcock…KUDOS to you where ever you are!  Seriously dude…you scare the bejezus out of me.  Now if the birds would just go away, I might be able to sleep a peaceful night’s sleep again!  
Get off those lines you scary beasts!  This is my island!  Don’t you and Al have another movie to write (that by the grace of God I won’t watch)?  Seriously be gone now or I swear I’m busting out the BB gun!  Y’all scare me!

  1. Too funny! I have never watched that one, but I’m guessing I wouldn’t be as scared just because I’m an adult. It seems like the things you see as a child make such a lasting impression.

  2. It is crazy, isn’t it? I went to Disney World as a young child, thought I would die on Space Mountain. Went back as an adult and that was the lamest ride ever! Oh well, I’m still not going to watch that movie again!

    OMG–I find packs (or bunches…or whatever they are called) of birds creepy too. I have actually been to Bodega Bay, where the movie was filmed–it was cool and creepy!
