In 1863, in Fairhope, Alabama, a group of former Confederate soldiers robbers a commerce bank and kills many clients and employees. While escaping to Mexico, they spend the night in an isolated house that belonged to a dead soldier of their company. When weird events happen in the stormy night, they find that the dwellers are demons.
"Dead Birds" is a reasonable low-paced horror movie. The watchable and forgettable story has good special effects and entertains, without being special. Indicated for a rainy weekend only. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "A Casa dos Pássaros Mortos" ("The House of the Dead Birds")
