Movie: The Birds
The Story, in a nutshell: A small town is terrorized by bird attacks.
Reason it’s awesome: The story is simple and sounds so benign, but the execution of the story has moments where it is terrifying! I remember watching this as a very young teenager and my brothers, who were probably about 7 and 9 at the time, were quite disturbed. Although it has some gruesome moments, the core of this film is actually terror and suspense, and it accomplishes it very well.
