Wow...scary pigeons....say it ain't so!
20 October 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Pigeons from Hell" is a wonderful example of the old saying "Style over substance". This is because the show has a wonderful, scary and brooding atmosphere...but when you think about all this, it's incredibly dopey! Not a great episode of "Thriller", believe me.

Two teens are lost in the woods and happen upon an old run down mansion. During the night, one of the brothers awakens to find his brother covered in blood and looking like a zombie. The brother (Brandon de Wilde) runs through the woods and ends up knocking himself out...and revives to find himself being questioned by the sheriff. The sheriff doesn't believe the story...though he agrees to accompany the young man to the mansion.

This story is all about voodoo and zombies and crazy stuff like that. It might have worked if the story hadn't been silly and poorly written. Too bad....
