      Alan M I am currently watching this movie. It is really good. I am injoying it. A bit low budget but for the money spent it us a good movie with plenty of action and tension. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/19/22 Full Review tim s "Kaw" is a SCI FI, horror that takes its inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds." A small town sheriff, one day away from relocation to the city , finds his community under attack from thousands of vicious ravens. Along with help from a few local residents including the doctor, played by "The Birds" actor Rod Taylor, sheriff Wayne tries to protect the surviving town members. The performances are solid and Rod Taylor's presence adds a sense of reference back to the original 1963 horror "The Birds."  Apart from a very unnecessary sub plot regarding a small Mennonite commune, "Kaw" has a good story line with a believable reason for the attack. Some of the effects are surprisingly good and there are some gory horror moments. However it does not build in tension the way Hitchcock crafted the 1963 chiller and due to the sub plot it struggles with pacing. However  "Kaw" did hold my attention and interest for the full duration of the film. This despite the school bully surviving and some questionable accents and dialogue regarding the Mennonite Farmers. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Another decent animal attacks movie. Nothing really noteworthy, but it's got a solid premise and some good effects. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Zero momentum and botched execution of the simple stupidity of a killer birds movie make this a complete waste of time. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member When your gun runs out of bullets use it as a bat, duh!! If this movie started out any slower, it would have started to play backwards. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I remember watching this as a teen and saying, "This is interesting." I was wrong.....so wrong.

      Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Great killer bird movie... Sep 29, 2013 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures pays homage a little too much to The Birds Rated: 2/5 Aug 17, 2008 Full Review Brian Webster Apollo Guide Flops because it lacks true tension and certainly can't keep up with the shock value of its gore-filled horror contemporaries. Rated: 52/100 Oct 20, 2007 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...ultimately undone by the inclusion of at least one needless subplot and a pace that's almost glacial in its execution. Rated: 2/4 Oct 18, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews
