Goofs

On emergency vehicles, the lettering is usually backwards so as to be read by a vehicle in front of it. The Bronco's "Emergency 911" is written standard. Of course, this town has cops in very loose jeans about to fall off, so maybe the nuances of lettering aren't a priority! See more »

Solid and likable, if ultimately slightly unremarkable evil raven horror
25 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Sci Fi Channel is home to a lot of killer animal horror and a lot is pretty suspect stuff, but Kaw rises somewhat above a lot of the films there. It wasn't a homegrown production and it is considerably better than a lot of the TV horror lineup, although it does sit comfortably with them. The plot has a small town sheriff having to deal with a sudden outbreak of attacks by ravens, who seem to have gained a malevolent intelligence. It immediately brings The Birds to mind and this impression is enforced by the neat casting of that films lead Rod Taylor in a nice cameo role as the towns doctor. the rest of the acting is solid, with Sean Patrick Flannery suitably authoritative and compelling as the sheriff and Stephen Mchattie playing things hard worn but good hearted as a bus driver trying to stay sober most effective. Decent support comes from the likes Michelle Duqet as nice diner owner Betty and Ashley Newbrough as mean schoolgirl Doris. The ravens are nicely portrayed with a combination of real birds and good quality cgi and they come off as good antagonists. Director Sheldon Wilson handles things well, setting up the atmosphere well and providing some effective tense sequences. What brings the film down is its flawed writing and predictability. There's very little there that isn't familiar, the explanation for events isn't great and the ending is downright weak. A potentially interesting subplot involving Mennonites is set up but never used very well and apart from a couple of cool scenes the film does little with the idea of the ravens being intelligent. The film moves easily but is lacking in shocks or fear, the bird attacks aren't as fearsome as they might be and though there are a couple of bits of nifty mild gore the film could definitely have done with more. I enjoyed the film on the whole but I can't see it sticking in my memory apart from a couple of scenes and the annoying ending. Lovers of killer animal films could do far worse than to check this one out but its far from being a great or truly compelling entry in the genre. Not one to rush to see then, but not too bad.
