Who doesn’t like a movie about killer birds? Not just any killer birds, but killer birds infected with mad cow disease? And not just any mad cow disease, but special English-hating AMISH mad cow disease. Ooops, I just gave away the ending. I’m sure you’ll forgive. Ann and I watched this last night and had a good time. She screamed from fear three times! One of the more amusing casting decisions is the inclusion of Rod Taylor from The Birds. He’s obviously the go-to guy for movies about killer birds.
The behind the scenes featurette was, all kidding aside, really cool. Turns out ravens are as trainable as dogs — and huge! Watching them zip around the camera with their trainers on the periphery is really pretty cool.
