A biology teacher and his wife take their two children to an island summer house to enable him to write an important thesis while getting over the death of their son. While they are there, large flocks of birds appear and begin to attack individual humans for no apparent reason. The town mayor (who is also the local doctor) refuses to believe that birds are responsible for the spate of injuries that are occurring but, before long, he has no option but to believe as the birds begin attacking larger groups of people.

After the tragic death of their son, a husband and wife move with their two young daughters to a home by the ocean coast. It doesn't take long for the father to suspect that something strange is going on with the local birds and soon enough all humans are under attack. You really can't blame the producers for trying to do a sequel to the Alfred Hitchcock film, after all, the sequel to PSYCHO turned out extremely well but you can blame them for not coming up with a better screenplay. I've never been a big fan of the Hitchcock original but this sequel is just a complete mess from the word go. For starters, the screenwriters must have thought that people would want to sit around for a hour without anything good happening. We basically sit around for a hour just watching the lead character try to warn people about the birds and everything thinking he's crazy. We also have to sit around and watch the wife get hit up on by her boss who has one of the worst and most unfunny sense of humors in film history. It really doesn't help that the two daughters are among the most annoying children to ever be seen in a motion picture. Right from the start of the picture you can't help but be annoyed with the entire family so it's hard to really care about what happens to them. The film lacks any suspense and once the bird attacks do happen they're more funny than anything else and that's not good in a thriller. The performances in the film aren't much better, the characters are all forgettable and add in the fact that there's no suspense and you're left with a rather worthless film. Even the brief appearance by Tippi Hedren isn't enough to make this worth sitting through. THE BIRDS II: LAND'S END is a rare film that actually lives up to its bad reputation.
