In Louisiana, a soldier returning from Vietnam finds his wife in bed with her lover and he kills them both as well as a couple of friends, but he is attacked by a bird and he loses his eyes. Years later, the bodies have not been found and the former soldier is now a bird specialist (Dr. Fred Brown) living in a house nearby the swamp. When a group of college students go to the swamp on an assignment to research a species of woodpecker that is almost extinct, they head to Dr. Brown's house to get some tips of how to find the rare bird. They drive through the swamp where they find the house where the murders happened and they decide to stay there. During the night, weird things happen. Written by

All build up, with no payoff. What was going through Robert Vaughn's head during shooting? The acting is so bad that the plot (??) is impossible to follow...most of the dialogue just sounds like random words. The gore (what little of it there is) is terrible. Nothing happens!! Somehow, Zombie 5 came out the year before Zombie 4...a minor point. Anyway, they both have the same structure...they both start with a ridiculously long flash back which ends with a child getting away. Then this child comes back when they are older...but they don't make that clear. Then they randomly introduce characters and kill them off. As for Killing Birds...I have no idea what birds had to do with anything...I'm sure Robert Vaughn explained it at some point. Not even worth laughing at!
