    ~ THE BIRDS gets the 4K Steelbook release ~

    Posted .

    Alfred Hitchcock's THE BIRDS gets the UHD 4K steelbook release and it comes out a winner all around. Now, THE BIRDS was previously released on 4K in a box set with other Hitchcock movies in the 4K format, but, it did not have a standalone set. It also had previously a Blu-ray steelbook release with different artwork on it. After the initial run of that, the prices went way up, so I am very happy to see this arrive. The movie itself is just another brilliant take on Mr. Hitchcock's movie making style and suspense. It looks and sounds fantastic now in the 4K format. I have never seen it look this good on the 4K TV and player. All special features have been brought over from the previous releases. This also has the digital copy of it, if you collect those. Well done!

    I really dug this movie. Having only seen Hitchcock’s more well known films I can say that this ranks near the top of the likes of Psycho, Vertigo and Rear Window. Only a master like Hitch could make ordinary birds seem threatening and this movie really kept me enthralled throughout.

    Hugely Influential

    There's so much that can be said about The Birds that can boil down to the phrase "not the very best." It's not the very best Hitchcock, 4k transfer, or audio transfer. But there is a reason why it's been included with all-time bests Vertigo, Rear Window and Psycho in the 4k box set- it's indelible mark on pop culture. It's influence cannot be understated- from directors who based elements of their own films on it, to the fact that people know the general premise even if they haven't seen it. Again, this is the weakest of the Hitchcock 4k's so far, but there are moments of 60's technicolor oversaturation that I love. It also has a steelbook cover that I find so much more appealing than the standard, even more so than for the aforementioned classics.

    Awesome steelbook of a underrated movie. I'm a big steelbook collector so this was a no-brainer. Great detailing on the packaging and great picture quality on the discs.

    The Birds - Hitchcock Does It Again

    A wealthy San Francisco socialite pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town that slowly takes a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people. Starring Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren, and Jessica Tandy I consider this milestone to be the pioneer in the 'nature revolts' sub genre. For reasons that remain unexplained throughout the entire movie, birds spontaneously launch aggressive attacks against the inhabitants of Bodega Bay. Hitchcock's nickname 'The Master of Suspense' is justified through many individual moments here in this film. The film's brilliant anti-climax, with thousands of birds just sitting and suspiciously waiting outside the Brenner house is legendary and imitated copious of times. "The Birds" presents a truly ominous atmosphere that still manages to send cold shivers down your spine. Don't miss it.

    Sort of a proto-zombie flick, from the panic of the townsfolk to the isolation at the house with the horde banging at the door, with recognizable tropes of other later classics peppered throughout, and images that surely were mind-blowing shockers for a 1963 audience. The 4K remastering brings out the best and worst of the effects of the time. This was a good blind-buy.

    great looking steelbook for classic Hitchcock flick. arrived quick and luckily without dents or damage. best buy please ship all steelbooks in boxes with bubble wrap around all sides not just top. worst feeling opening a steelbook and seeing dents from paper envelope packaging and not box.

    One of Hitchcock's most frightening and suspenseful films gets the 4K steelbook treatment, and much like his other recent releases on the format, they've used original artwork and designs from the film's first theatrical release. This film - this release - belongs on the shelf of every cinema fan.

    A classic film with a sweet steelbook cover. I love this trend of putting poster art on the cover of these steelbooks. The film looks and sounds fantastic. I've only recently started getting into Hitchcock and I haven't regretted it yet.

    The film is perfect. The 4K presentation is stunning, if you discount the visual effect sequences that by their very nature will always look a bit shaky. The steelbook is stunning. This is one of the best looking Steelbooks of all time.

    Love this movie and it’s never looked better on home video. This is the same disc included in Universal’s recent Hitchcock Classics 4K UHD box set. The Steelbook packaging really adds a sense of prestige that this film certainly is worthy of. Highly recommended.

    This is an amazing steelbook. The art pops, the back panel of Hitchcock ties it together perfectly, and to top it off the transfer on the film is top notch and complete with extras. You can’t ask for a better release than this.
