Two amateurish hunters are attacked by creepy birds in the woods. Meanwhile seven delinquents are camping in the forest with their counselor in a program of reintegration to the society. Suddenly they are attacked by the birds and the counselor dies and one of the youngsters is wounded. The brutal Johnson imposes his leadership by force over the others while they are hunted by the birds. Meanwhile ranger Garrett finds one of the hunters passed out in the forest and takes him to the hospital. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Originally, people who become infected would transform into the giant bird-like monsters. However, the budget did not support any good transformation special effects, so the idea was scrapped. See more »

Brilliant and puzzling foray into the unknown
4 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Leigh Scott has once again surpassed his own greatness with the film "Flu Birds." Shock and awe came over me as I felt sickened, moved and generally terrified while watching this film. The SciFi channel has always been known for greatness(what other station gives us Anacondas 3 and Lochness Monster?) but this film was different. It's as though Leigh Scott channeled Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock when making this. It also plays mind games with you as Nolan did in his great film "Memento" but it's a little more subtle than that. At the 70 minute mark, you will ask yourself if you can handle this anymore? I honestly think that I wet myself a little. Well, Leigh Scott does what he's known for best once again and pulls the carpet from under you. You will question the laws of Earth and wonder if gravity is real? I'm no solipsist but the dread that sat in after Scott played the part of puppet master once again just had me needing a Xanax. I don't smoke but I felt like it. I had cold sweats and thought I was coming down with something. Did you ever see "Ringu?" Well, this film is the real version of that. I am honestly psyched for Scott's upcoming film which will be him tackling another transgressive mind H.P. Lovecraft. Fear not folks, you thought Stuart Gordon could make a great Lovecraft adaption but the truth is coming! The man behind such brilliance as "Transmorphers" and "The Beast of Bray Road" is now tackling Lovecraft!!! Hell yeah!

Satire can be lost on so many people.
