The Sci Fi Channel brings us deadly contagious birds driven mad with a flu so nasty they want to kill. The sickly fowl set their beady eyes on a lost flock of teens stumbling through the woods. Now it's up to the kids to destroy these sniffles-afflicted birds before they reach the city and spread their germs, thus destroying the planet. All seems lost, until the hero devises a rudimentary weapon that launches chicken soup and ginger ale. Birds zero, humans one. Bird Flu will air on Sci Fi as a movie and then be released onto DVD August 30th. [Dread Central]
