News, but not the serious kind
Fling more drumsticks! She’s not scared yet!
Yeah, that would be the low-budget remake of “The Birds.” The studio has it under wraps because frankly, it’s awful. They even tried to prevent me from using these photos from the production.
They had no money for special effects, so they did stuff like wiring birds to the actors’ heads, dropping feathered beanbags from rafters, and even lobbing dead crows onto the set with slingshots.
For the pivotal climax, they tipped over 622 buckets full of fried chicken parts onto the heroine, along with opened ketchup packets for blood. Does this look like terror to you, because to me, it just looks like somebody trying to dodge greasy thighs and wings.
