There have been countless cheesy old horror movies involving killer animals, insects and even tomatoes of all things, but one that seems to hold the cheese and stand the test of time is Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. This is most likely due to Hitchcock's handling of the material. His assured direction and ability to build tension and suspense created many memorable and terrifying scenes in The Birds.
Although there aren't many actual fatalities in the film (onscreen anyway) being pecked to death by birds is certainly a unique and unusual way to go, even for a horror film. One man in the film is killed when he lights a cigar while unknowingly standing in a puddle of gasoline (that was spilled by another man who was attacked by birds). Let's just say his appearance in the film is cut short when he drops the match.
