Terror Birds is a Horror Film by Sean Cain.

One day, Keith Stern (Craig Nigh), a birdwatcher is in the woods for his usual thing, when he stumbles across an electrified fence. He scales it, and the next bird he sees is the last one.

Some time later, the birdwatcher's college-aged daughter, Maddie Stern (Jessica Lee Keller) gets worried when she realizes he's been away on his birdwatching expidition for far longer than he usually is. With the help of her friends (and one girl one of them is dating), she heads out into the woods he usually goes to to find out what happened to him.

They track him to the same facility he went to, and soon discover that the owners of the facility have the world's last two terror birds in captivity, and have been trying (unsuccessfully) to get them to breed and produce healthy chicks. However, now that the kids have discovered the facility, as well as what's been going on there, there's no way they can be allowed to leave alive.


The movie was released on March 8th, 2016.

Terror Birds contains examples of:

  • Aluminum Christmas Trees: No, the birds weren't made up for the movie. And the title was their actual name.
  • Dwindling Party: People die in the movie left, right, and center until only two survivors remain.
  • The End... Or Is It?: At the end of the movie, the adult terror birds have both been killed. However, they managed to lay some eggs, and the babies have survived to hatch.
  • Feathered Fiend: The titular terror birds.
  • Gender-Equal Ensemble: The main characters consist of three boys and three girls.
  • Groin Attack: Taylor gives Russel one in the gas station when he tries hitting on her.
  • Off with His Head!: The birds kill quite a few people in the movie by biting their heads off.
  • Scary Animal Title: With a title like Terror Birds, how can this trope not apply?

  • Take This Job and Shove It: Dr. Slater, after having had enough of working on the birds, makes it known she no longer wishes to continue working at the ranch. The owner decides to feed her to the birds in retaliation.
  • Time Skip: After the intro showing the birds being released from the crate they were airlifted to the ranch from, the film then cuts ahead six months.
