Blu-Ray Review: ‘Birdemic: Shock and Terror’ is So Bad, It’s Awful

4 March 2011 11:45 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – There is a fine line that separates entertainingly bad movies from all-out bores. “The Room” is a truly original, wholly accidental work of comedic genius that greatly benefits from the impenetrable strangeness of its writer/director/star Tommy Wiseau. The film is so funny in so many different ways that it could easy hold up under countless viewings.

Birdemic: Shock and Terror” is the first film to aim for “Room”-like success with audiences, passing itself off as another unintentionally side-splitting travesty. Yet the picture is nowhere near as hilarious as it thinks it is. Filmmaker James Nguyen is a charmless hack who blatantly steals the plots and characters from classic Hitchcock movies. His copying of “The Birds” is so shameless that it recalls the scandalous cut-and-paste job done by Camillo Teti, who populated his jaw-dropping “Titanic: The Animated Movie” with an assortment of thinly veiled Disney characters.
