Killer Hummingbirds

Really. I'm serious. Remember, you read it here first.

They are beautiful and jewel-like, but could be deadly. And remember their attraction to red...

We have very bold, aggressive hummers here, and the other day when I was walking, one buzzed me and I saw his long pointy beak and thought "you know, someone could make a horror movie about swarms of rogue, vampire hummingbirds..." And imagined news reports of people being found, drained of blood, with a single tiny hole in their neck.

Don't you think this one has quite a fierce expression?

The ferocious Huitzilopoch tli. the Aztec god of war and the sun, was depicted as a hummingbird. You could certainly weave that into such a story.

There has to be a scene in which one victim fights back and is rewarded by the hummingbird beak going into his eye and maybe coming out with the eyeball attached like a martini olive on a toothpick.

I am vaguely reminded of the plague of biting ladybirds which swept Toronto a number of years ago.
