Scary Evil Birds!!


      Welcome to the kick off to week 3 of BlogFest 2012! Today’s host is Nicole  at “World of My Imagination”.  The writing prompt for today is to describe a scene from a book, movie, or television show that scares me the most.  Most of the time I avoid all that is scary like the plague because I really don’t get my jollies getting the living be Je$us scared out of me. 


        The first movie that comes to mind is Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller “The Birds”.  I will be the first to admit that there were a lot of scenes in that movie that scared the $hit out of me which is probably why birds in general freak me out to this day.  I have never understood why people actually have birds for pets.  The scene that freaks me out the most is probably a toss up between the scene where Melanie played by Tippi Hedren gets pecked by a million birds or the one where Jessica Tandy goes into an empty house to discover this guy with his eyes pecked out surrounded by unbelievable destruction and dead birds. 

          Birds, blood, guts, and gore tend to freak me out and guarantee bad dreams  until next time when I give you another glimpse into the life of a trucker’s wife.

  1. I found that movie so incredibly long and boring. And when I lived in CA, I used to go up to Bodega a lot and really liked seeing the old schoolhouse used in the movie (although the coast and water is not at the end of the driveway as depicted in the film, but actually about another 10 miles west). I don't like scary movies either. Except The Shining b/c Jack Nicholson is just so darn funny!

    1. JoJo, that is cool!! I usually don't make a habit of watching scary movies and usually go for the romantic comedies or dramas. This one I had heard of before and had actually seen a long time ago. Thank you for stopping by to read and for your kind comments! ♥

    1. Joyce, I think the forbidding music added to the scare. I have never looked at a bird the same since. Thank you for stopping by to read and for your kind comments! ♥

  4. Oh gosh I love horror movies! I do prefer the older ones though...I'm not a fan of "Paranormal Activity" or any of that rubbish but "Hellraiser" (and the like) still has me captivated!

  6. I had to watch The Birds in 7th Grade--and I hated that movie. You are right--you never look at birds the same way again after seeing it!!

    Great post!!

    Cheers, Jenn.

  9. This is a prompt I just couldn't do as I refuse to watch any scary stuff. I hate Halloween. Only tolerate it for the sake of my kids. ANd one has peanut allergies so he can't even eat his own Halloween crappy candy.
