Any heard of or seen The Birds II- Land's End

I remember renting it on VHS as a kid twice. It was a made for TV movie and the sequel to the Hitchcock film. Doesn't look like it's ever going to be released on DVD though.

Both. Seen and heard of.

I own the shitty Goodtimes VHS release. I'd love to see it get a DVD release. No, it wasn't great or anything. But it was mildly entertaining. The guy from The Video Graveyard actually liked it quite a bit.

Yeah, my neighbor always rented this one when I was a kid. Hilarious movie (The birds poking holes through the over turned boat's hull in the end was retarded).

no one would ever call this a "good" movie, but last time i saw it about 15 years ago, i remember thinking it was fun and a good "BAD" movie!

Hate it. It undermines the ending of the first by even existing. The end of part 2 was the only thing I liked about it, because it had the same apocalyptic feeling of the first.

It was good in the 'very cheesy and don't expect much' sort of way...It's been a long time since I've seen it, so maybe memory serves better than the movie deserves, I seem to remember a couple of scenes surpassing expectations but that was kind of it. Tippi Hedren looked kind of confused in it, and I remember also being confused as to whether she was supposed to be her original character, or someone completely different etc., and was just in it for "actor recognition" sake (for lack of better descrip)...I dunno...It was kind of okay, definitely nothing great...I thought...

I bought the MCA VHS about a year ago and finally watched it a couple days ago. I thought it was quite entertaining, seemed like a made for cable film. Nothing spectacular, but it was about what I expected so I wasn't let down.

Pretty sure this was made-for-cable - premiered on Showtime I believe.

this movie perfectly defines the catch phrase epic fail.
