The Birds (The Birds)

The Birds, seen attacking people.

The Birds are the main antagonists of the horror movie of the same name, which has become widely known as one of cinema's more popular and critically acclaimed horror movies of all time: it is also perhaps one of the best examples of the subgenre of horror known as "Natural Horror", which focuses on the terror of nature gone wild rather than supernatural threats.

The Birds are ordinary birds that suddenly become unnaturally violent towards humans for unknown reasons to the point they begin to seek out humans and kill them without mercy - the reason behind the attacks are never revealed and it is left largely to the viewer to decide what could have caused the normally peaceful birds to have become hostile.
