The Birds (1963) is one of those films my dad made my sisters and me watch as kids and now I look back and say, “What was he thinking?” Hundreds of birds attacking folks for no apparent reason is a terrifying thing to watch as an adult, let alone as a youngster.
I read Daphne du Maurier’s short story in high school. I appreciated the Alfred Hitchcock film after that. The movie develops incredibly slowly, but like any Hitchcock film, the intensity grows throughout. It’s a classic for certain.

My friend and long, lost, younger twin brother Rance Collins had a group of friends watch Wait Until Dark (1967) one year at college. He said it was scary. I didn’t believe it until close to the end of the movie where Audrey Hepburn’s blind character smashes all the lights in her apartment as she defends herself against Alan Arkin, who plays a very freaky criminal. What results from this scene is a most terrifying moment that tops my “movie scare moments” list.
Yesterday was Rance’s birthday, so happy birthday, brother. This one’s for you in all your Turner Classic Movies interning glory.
