Get out your coat hangers, Birdemic 3 is on the way muthaf*ckas!

  • JoBlo
Man, Birdemic: Shock And Terror is one of my all-time favorite bad movies. It probably tops even The Room for me (and that's saying a lot). From the terrible, creepy romance between a Victoria Secret model (who got her gig from doing photos at a Rite-Aid) and her stalker; to the wooden "acting" of lead Alan Bagh, who has to be a faulty android trying to...

‘Birdemic: Shock and Terror’ Blu-ray Review (Severin)

Stars: Alan Bagh, Whitney Moore | Written and Directed by James Nguyen

There are films that can be called “so bad they are good” and other bad films that are funny to watch for all the wrong reasons… What camp does Birdemic: Shock and Terror sit in? That’s for you to decide. With a story similar to The Birds, Birdemic tells the story of two lovers Rod (Alan Bagh) and Nathalie (Whitney Moore) who find themselves caught in the “Birdemic” with birds of prey suddenly attacking a small seaside town.

It is hard to defend Birdemic: Shock and Terror, it just isn’t a good movie. I can see why some may champion it as being so bad its good, but it didn’t fit that category for me. This review isn’t going to be me bashing it though, because that would be unfair. Why would you consider purchasing the Blu-ray?

31 Days of Horror: ‘Birdemic’ Review

Stars: Alan Bagh, Whitney Moore | Written and Directed by James Nguyen

Birdemic, described by director James Nguyen as a romantic thriller, is a story about a young couple falling in love against the backdrop of a batshit insane tale of a town under siege by homicidal eagles! Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds (in fact The Birds actress Tippi Hedren makes a cameo in the film in stock footage), the film also tackles topical issues such as global warming and world peace, all wrapped up in a film so inept that you’ll leave the film with the hugest grin on your face. We’ve all heard the phrase “so bad it’s good”, well Birdemic is the epitomy of that phrase!

Where to begin reviewing a film like Birdemic? It’s script? Garbage. It’s actors? Terrible, however the blonde female lead (Whitney Moore) is nice to look

Film Review: ‘Birdemic 2: The Resurrection’

Film Review: ‘Birdemic 2: The Resurrection’
The advertising tag — “You asked for it” — is the best thing about “Birdemic 2: The Resurrection.” Its 2010 predecessor, “Birdemic: Shock and Terror,” was one of those rare instances of filmic ineptitude so distinctive it could pass as inspired folk art, winning the biggest midnight-movie following since Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room.” Lacking the bizarro-world charisma of that film’s auteur/star, however, James Nguyen’s sequel is a much less transfixing whatsit that takes far too long getting to the slender amusement of its ludicrous “action” scenes. Nonetheless, fan curiosity should propel this self-distributed follow-up on a niche road that’s already scored various midnight and one-off showings across the U.S. and Europe.

Nguyen instantly re-establishes his signature style with a long opening credits sequence in which simply capturing a protagonist walking down a street — in this case, Hollywood Boulevard — mightily challenges the acting and directorial skills on tap.

James Nguyen’s Birdemic 2: The Resurrection Gets a Shiny New Theatrical Trailer

Director James Nguyen’s “Birdemic 2: The Resurrection” is either the dumbest movie ever made or a calculated slice of comedy gold. I honestly can’t figure it out. Regardless, the “visionary” filmmaker’s follow-up appears to be “Birdemic” on steroids. Instead of one goofy couple, you get two. In addition to killer birds, you get zombies. And that’s fine by me. The more the merrier. Now bring on the Blu-ray, already! I’m impatient! Check out this synopsis: A flock of eagles and vultures wreak havoc amidst blossoming romance in Hollywood, California, leaving bloodshed and destruction wherever they hover. The story features original ‘Birdemic’ survivors Rod and Nathalie, who are joined by new friends – struggling filmmaker Bill, aspiring actress Gloria and several other Angelenos they encounter as they battle angry birds and a host of new enemies. “Birdemic 2: The Resurrection” stars Whitney Moore, Alan Bagh, Patsy van Ettinger,

Best of Bad Cinema – ‘Birdemic’

Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Written by James Nguyen

Directed by James Nguyen

USA, 2008

You have to respect an artist with a vision. Sometimes they make Dances With Wolves or The Passion of the Christ and are rewarded critically and commercially for their risky works of passion. Other times you get James Nguyen’s notorious 2008 film Birdemic. The film is an homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds and Al Gore’s Oscar winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth. Shot largely on weekends and funded completely by Nguyen’s day job as a software salesman in Silicon Valley, the film is actually quite magical for bad movie fans due to the tonal shift midway through. It’s kind of like two awesomely bad movies for the price of one!

The first half of the film focuses on the wooing of Victoria Secret model Nathalie (Whitney Moore) by leading man Rod (Alan Bagh

Birdemic II: The Resurrection Spreads its Wings in June

A little bird dropped by our mailbox to let us know that the sequel to Birdemic: Shock and Terror (review here), entitled Birdemic II: The Resurrection, will begin hitting theatres in June with screenings being held everywhere from Los Angeles to Paris, France. Said bird then exploded, much to our delight.

We'll have all of the official details for you as soon as possible. Just wanted to give you guys enough of a heads-up so that you can prepare your hangers.

Visionary writer/director James Nguyen said his inspiration for the film was the La Brea Tar Pits. “I went to the museum at the Tar Pits, which had an exhibit of ancient eagles and vultures,” he recalled, “and as I walked through it, I said, ‘This is Birdemic 2.’” He added, “The Tar Pits are a major hint why the birds attack La.”

Alan Bagh and Whitney Moore to Reprise Their Roles for Birdemic II

Screw the 2011 Academy Award Nominations — I just learned that Alan Bagh and Whitney Moore, the stars of James Nguyen’s cult sensation “Birdemic: Shock and Terror”, will reprise their roles for the sequel. “Birdemic II: Resurrection 3D” begins shooting on February 4th, 2012, which means that we may get the sequel sometime before the end of the year. Given the original’s loyal and dedicated following, I seriously doubt fans will have to wait as long for the flick to find a distributor. “Birdemic”, of course, is Nguyen’s beloved romantic thriller that follows the adventures of a young couple and their blood-soaked encounters with loads of murderous birds. If the follow-up is anything like the first installment, expect loads of cheap special effects, cringe-inducing performances, and a plot that makes little to no sense whatsoever. Sounds like a good time to me! The trailer for the original has been embedded

DVD Review: Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Starring Alan Bagh, Whitney Moore, Tippi Hedren, Rick Camp

Directed by James Nguyen

Severin Films

DVD | Blu-Ray

Release Date: February 22, 2011

Meet Rod (Alan Bagh). He does something involving software sales, or computers, or something. Damned if I know. What I do know is that he makes beaucoup bucks doing it so and it also provides him with the freedom to pursue his one true passion: solar paneling for houses. One day he has a chance encounter with Nathalie (Whitney Moore), an aspiring lingerie model who just scored a gig with Victoria's Secret. Success and wealth unites these two crazy, criminally uninteresting kids in a romance for the ages. To celebrate their blossoming love affair they take a trip to a small California town to walk on the beach, enjoy the local festivities, and then fool around in a cheap motel. Then on a pleasant and sunny

Best of Severin Films: ‘Birdemic: Shock and Terror’ – a tribute to Hitchcock’s The Birds

“Like Ed Wood, Nguyen is an auteur with a dream and while we may laugh at the movie, we can’t laugh at the fact that he got the job done…”

Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Directed by James Nguyen

Written by James Nguyen

2009, USA

On the list of movies so bad they’re good, we must now add James Nguyen’s Birdemic: Shock and Terror. The most recent candidate for the title of worst movie of all time, Birdemic has surely carved out a place in the pantheon of midnight movies along side such classics as Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space, Troll 2 and last year’s hipster cult sensation The Room. The Sundance reject soars above the terrible movie heavens, opening with extended slow scenes of the hero, cardboard-bland, dim-witted salesman Rod, driving across northern California in his blue Mustang. We meet his girlfriend Nathalie, a hopelessly vapid would-be model.

Paul - Screening

I could not be more excited to see this film, the final product of a project that nerds who appreciate Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been hearing about for years. On purpose I’ve been trying to avoid anything and everything about this movie but it’s been hard because it has been everywhere. An alien, Comic-Con, a road trip, Jason Bateman, the laundry list of good things brewing within this movie’s run time is just scrumptious.

So, if you live in the Phoenix area and can make it to a screening on March 15 then send me your name to Christopher_Stipp@yahoo.com and I’ll get you entered to win a pair of passes to see this before everyone else.
