The Birds
When a rogue flock of birds mysteriously and inexplicably attack the citizens of a small coastal town (and memorably, a helpless group of schoolchildren), they are forced to go into survival mode as the assaults become increasingly more vicious and deadly. An icy blond Tippi Hedren stars in this 1960s Hitchcock classic. 

The Happening
Love him (The Sixth Sense) or hate him (Lady in the Water), M. Night Shyamalan marks his cinematic return with the mysterious and, at times, riveting new film The Happening.  High on suspense, not special effects, this film is a Valentine to the sci-fi flicks of the 1950s, and issues an eerie eco-warning. An unusually earnest Mark Wahlberg stars; Betty Buckley shines in a supporting role.
