Product Description

Birdemic: Shock And Terror

Amazon.ca

There's very little to say about Birdemic: Shock and Terror, unless you're in a room with at least 20 of your most ebullient, intoxicated friends who can yell at the screen, laugh at the primitive craftsmanship, howl at the ludicrous plot and dialogue, and generally have a good time at the expense of a movie that must know it's an awful affair designed to please for just those reasons. Filmmaker James Nguyen was probably a little surprised by the attention this shot-on-video labor sparked when it found a cult audience in a number of cities in the United States (and even abroad). It's certainly a surprise that the DVD is sparking another round of interest when the film itself is so dreadful. It's hard to make the argument that that's the point when the word amateurish doesn't even come close to describing the technical construction and acting, let alone the bizarre story of birds that fly amok and kill people with talons, with vomit, or by spontaneously exploding. The "special effects" consist of the most rudimentary home computer graphics, and the production values include just about everything they tell you not to do on your first day at film school. The film's 90 minutes would be cut at least by half without the abundant footage devoted to people walking, people driving, people standing and sitting, and people going in and out of doors. But on to the story, which starts with a romance, then moves to some bizarre tribute to Hitchcock's The Birds as the stupidly animated creatures begin attacking, then ends as a polemic about how global warming is turning the world upside down (beginning with the creation of killer birds). To be fair, this could fit into the so-bad-it-could-be-good category for a large number of people who applaud effort and appreciate lameness as high irony. But in order to walk away with that opinion, it might be best to save Birdemic for a movie-night party with a room or theater full of fuzzy-headed comrades who can take the head-shaking shenanigans with several canisters full of salt. --Ted Fry

This is one of those movies vying for the title of worst ever. Unlike some others that I know are genuine failures, I'm not sure with this one. I think that everyone involved must have known that it was amateurish beyond belief and that they were just having some fun. But then again, maybe they were trying their best. Who knows? They did actually make a sequel with the main players coming back so that says that they weren't exactly devastated when the rock bottom reviews came in.

It's right down there with Manos:The Hands of Fate, Glen or Glenda, Dracula 3000, etc.

The acting is wooden. The movie is totally random for about 40 minutes with no story development. When the story arrives it is mind-numbingly awful. The effects look like early pre-viz stuff used to plan out scenes, rather than actual scenes. One bright spot is the leading lady who is a beauty.

This movie will make you ache as you watch but that, of course, is the point. I definitely recommend for the bad B-movie cultists.

When I recover, I'll move on to Birdemic: The Resurrection

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 25 2011
Format: DVD
Manos, the Hands of Fate. Showgirls. Troll 2. The Room. And now we have "Birdemic."

Nothing I say about this movie really matters. It has joined the small but notorious ranks of movies that are so utterly horrible, they become classic comedies -- it's a Z-grade "romantic thriller" (neither romantic nor thrilling) which tells us that A) Al Gore is God and B) global warming causes birds to become explosive kamikaze death machines that vomit acid.

The perfectly-named Rod (Alan Bagh) is a software programmer living in.... a town somewhere, where he makes a fortune in a software deal, and decides to make his own environmentally-friendly company. He also romances a model named Nathalie (Whitney Moore); they dance, talk with her boring mom, talk about stuff, look at dead birds, and eventually have sex at a motel.

Yeah, you're probably wondering where the explosive birds are. Apparently sex summons them, because the next morning, the entire state is being assaulted by giant exploding birds of prey. They also slit throats and puke acid. Why? Because of global warming. It's SCIENCE!

So Nathalie and Rod must escape with Deadmeat #1 and Deadmeat #2, rescue a couple of insufferably narcissistic children, and wander around so they can encountering people who tell them that Evil Humans Causing Global Warming are responsible for everything bad.

We had heard how awful this movie was and we thought we'd get it just for a laugh. It was indeed the worst script, worst acting and worst editing ever seen in a movie. I hope there will be a sequel.
