  • Birds of a Feather is a horror drama about a 12-year old gymnast girl, Tinja, who does everything to fulfil her mother`s high expectations. One day Tinja finds a strange bird’s egg and starts hatching it until out bursts a bird-like creature. Tinja names the horrifying monster Alli and hides it in her closet. Like baby birds, Alli only eats Tinja’s vomit, and after each feeding it gradually transforms into Tinja’s doppelganger. Tinja’s buried aggression and jealousy pushes Alli into increasingly violent attacks until no one is safe.

    Director’s Statement: Birds of a Feather is an smart horror drama for adults. The main character Tinja’s family scenes are picture beautiful, but there’s something wrong though you can’t really point out what. The horror of the film lies in a waiting atmosphere, in the fear that at any moment this perfect harmony could be violently torn apart. Being afraid of losing control is something also I can identify with. To think if all my worst impulses and fears came to life and I could no longer control them.
