The Birds 2: Land's End woof! 1994 (R)

Unfortunate rip-off of the Hitchcock fright classic. Killer seagulls begin attacking the inhabitants of east coast Gull Island. Seems they're tired of being oil slick victims. Hedren's the town shopkeeper in a role that's nothing like the one she played in the original. Definitely for the birds—even the director refuses to acknowledge it by officially using the film industry pseudonym “Alan Smithee.” Made for TV. 87m/C VHS . Brad Johnson, Chelsea Field, Tippi Hedren, James Naughton, Jan Rubes, Megan Gallagher; D: Rick Rosenthal; W: Jim Wheat, Ken Wheat. TV
