The Birds Scene 10

Scene 10

Scene 10

  • It's evening in the Brenner house.
  • The lovebirds are making a racket; Cathy wants Melanie to stay the night.
  • And then, whoosh, just like that, the second bird attack commences, as birds pour en masse out of the fireplace.
  • It's total chaos. The room is filled with screeching birds.
  • The women cover their eyes as Mitch thrashes around with a blanket trying to get the sparrows out of there.
  • If you look closely, you can see that the sparrows are not real but animated. With all of the fluttering, though, they end up being fairly convincing.
  • Dissolve to a bit later, with Officer Al examining a dead bird.
  • Al doesn't really understand what happened and doesn't believe that the birds attacked. They just don't do stuff like that.
  • Melanie takes Cathy to bed, and she decides to stay the night.
