Movie Info

When a shell-shocked Vietnam veteran brutally murders his wife, her lover, his parents, and the pet bird, the terror is only beginning in Joe D'Amato and Claudio Lattanzi's horrific sequel to the Lucio Fulci classic Zombie. Years after the savage slaughter, an elite team of scientists studying the mating habits of rare birds in the same area encounter a malevolent blind man with a flock of vicious, bloodthirsty birds. As the team attempts to escape the cursed forest, the dead begin to rise and an unspeakable evil descends from the sky to rip the souls from the living. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Killing birds - uccelli assassini (Zombie 5: Killing Birds)(Dark Eyes of the Zombie)(Raptors)

Takes a good hour to break out of Louisiana-travelogue mode but once it does, Killing Birds turns into a pretty spooky movie. Supernatural goings-ons abound in the final third of the movie so, if you dig other Italian exports like The Beyond and City of the Living Dead, take my word for it and stick around. You won't be (entirely) dissatisfied.

Woah. This is a stinkfest. The acting is stiff and horrible. Poor Robert Vaughan reduced to trying to make reading braille scary. There are some eye gouging birds. There is a great opening sequence with some very cheap looking effects. Not even enough money for blood squirts. The whole college set up is accompanied by the worst soundtrack the 80s had to offer. Even porn movies gave it a rest or changed it up between scenes. Is this a ghost story? A zombie haunting? Ancient evil? Nope, just stupidity. Seriously. That is what kills the people in this one. Stupidity.

Finally, someone has the brass balls to make a zombie movie with birds in it. Not zombie birds, but plain ole birds. Bravo. I don't know what it is about crappy eighties Italian horror that I love so much. The terrible acting, the synth score, the lack of style, the cameos by American has beens... so much to choose from. This doesn't fare well when compared to good horror films, but if you're looking for mindless fun (these Italian films are my popcorn/guilty pleasure films-like my version of Transformers) prepare to marvel at the stupidity of one film. Just keep telling yourself, "It's only a crappy movie. It's only a crappy movie".
