If you haven't seen 'The Birds' by Alfred Hitchcock, you are in for a treat. The International Museum of Art will screen it this weekend for free on the big screen. 'The Birds' will show you that a horror film doesn't have to have gore to scare the living hell out of you, it just needs to turn something that is part of your everyday life into something that can turn on you and kill you.

Who knew birds could be so freaking scary?

Tippi Hedren plays the classic cool, blonde Hitchcock heroine. She is a polished socialite with perfect clothes and perfect hair, but kind of a racy reputation. She meets a man in a pet shop and when he can't find a pair of lovebirds he wants, she finds them and delivers them to his home. While they get to know each other over the course of a couple of days, strange bird attacks keep happening and escalating to the point that they kill people.

That's all I'm going to tell you. You have to see this movie, but be ready to never look at a flock of birds the same way again.

WHAT: 'The Birds' screening
WHEN: October 8, 2:00 p.m.
