When a group of criminals on the run after a bank robbery take refuge in an abandoned house, they have no idea what evil they have come upon. Isolated and presumed deserted, the house is anything but safe... As the night wears on and a thunderstorm grows outside, each member of the group begins to have visions of the atrocities that occurred within the house, haunting it forever. Voices in the well, visions of mangled bodies and clawing under the stairs plague their waking hours. As the fear in the group begins to grow and the supernatural forces in the house start to manifest themselves, they begin to turn on each other and exact the wrath of the soul trapped within the walls.
A great horror film with gripping story.

Set to the backdrop of the American civil war, the story revolves around a group of soldiers who steal a shipment of gold, and on the run from the law take refuge in an abandoned farm. From the second they arrive they are aware of another eerie presence within the house which begins to appear and wreak havoc on each of them. For a low budget film 'Dead Birds' really manages to punch above its weight, the standard of acting was great for a film of this type, and the special effects were fantastic, with some truly graphic and disturbing imagery which delivered some real scares! Overall, 'Dead Birds' is a great horror movie from start to finish and well worth watching.
