I think you is confusing movies. Psycho's the one with the shower scene. The dramatic action in The Birds begins with Tippi Hedren being attacked by a lone seagull while walking on the waterfront.
Way to piss on my free-association-stream-of-consciousness-serendipitous-possibly-prescient-prophesising.
And picky, with it.
Watch The Skies
Yes, yes...The Thing From Another World....but this was a thing, too. A lone attacking winged thing.
When you're walking ever so carefully across the school playground surrounded by fahsands of them, just waiting, how comforting will it be to say to yourself "Ducked warned us, but his cinematic reference could be interpreted as slightly conflating two films, so we ignored him"?
Hey at least I'll go to my grave knowing I was true to cinematic history.
Only if the verdict of cinematic history is that the shower-scene in Psycho qualifies as "seemingly-insignificant-but-strange".
