10 Midnight Movies You Need To Watch

20th Century Fox

When American cinemas began midnight programming in the 1970s, they typically scheduled films that were either too weird for the mainstream or so bad they really were worth watching. In those pre-internet, pre-vcr days, a midnight movie was something illicit, a chance to watch something you might never see again.

Matinee screenings might’ve featured Charlton Heston saving a stricken airliner or surviving a Los Angeles earthquake, but the night belonged to El Topo, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s weird Western, and Night Of The Living Dead, which ushered in the era of grim, downbeat horror pictures.

Decades later, despite the competition from home entertainment, the midnight movie was alive and well and playing at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, where James Nguyen’s Birdemic was revelling in its newly-acquired status as one of the worst films ever made. The movie proved so popular during its limited theatrical run that a sequel,

2013 Sydney Underground Film Festival: Official Lineup

The 7th annual Sydney Underground Film Festival, which runs this year on September 5-8 at the Factory Theatre, opens with a real bang when they will screen cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s latest cinematic odyssey, The Dance of Reality. This is Jodorowsky’s first film in over twenty years and is an imaginative and playful quasi-autobiography.

The rest of the four-day celebration is packed with more film oddities and excursions into surreal and transgressive territory. One particular highlight that is not to be missed is Don Swaynos’ incredibly crowd-pleasing comedy Pictures of Superheroes, about a slacker cleaning woman’s descent into an absurd world she can’t escape. Read the Underground Film Journal’s review of Pictures of Superheroes here.

Other twisted fiction films screening include Drew Tobias’s sick and twisted See You Next Tuesday, Cody Calahan’s apocalyptic Antisocial and Lloyd Kaufman’s highly-anticipated sequel Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol.

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.

Hilariously Bad Trailer for Birdemic 2: The Resurrection

Have you seen the movie Birdemic: Shock and Terror? Well, it's gloriously awful, and unless you enjoy watching movies that are so bad they're good, it's hard to recommend. The script, story, acting, and special effects are all just utterly terrible, but the movie has managed to gain a cult following, and director James Nguyen is back with a laughably bad sequel called Birdemic 2: The Resurrection.

A platoon of eagles and vultures attack Hollywood, California. Why did the eagles and vultures attack? Who will survive?

If you've got 3 minutes to kill you can see for yourself how ridiculously bad this movie looks.

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,

James Nguyen’s Birdemic 2: The Resurrection Invades Los Angeles Later This Month

Director James Nguyen’s “Birdemic 2: The Resurrection” is headed to Los Angeles later this month. In order to prepare everyone and their wily grandparents for the film’s debut, the director and his promotional team have unleashed the colorfully over-the-top poster you see below. Please try to contain your excitement to mild shrieks. For those who are unfamiliar with the original outing, “Birdemic” explores the relationship between two good-looking West Coast types as they contend with the invasion of blood-thirsty birds. Why are these feathered creatures attacking everyone? Honestly, I can’t remember. But the film is an absolute blast, particularly if you’re of the belief that “The Room” is one of the greatest cinematic endeavors of our time. Bad taste is an absolute must. Here’s what the sequel is all about: Bill is a struggling filmmaker; Gloria is an aspiring actress. Rod, a Silicon Valley millionaire finances Bill’s film,

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 2: it'll be poultry in motion

Films as bad as Birdemic: Shock and Terror aren't supposed to get sequels, but if James Nguyen can keep the acting poor, the sound abysmal and the humour intact, it'll be another classic

Made on a reported budget of $10,000 (£6,385), Birdemic: Shock and Terror quickly vaulted into the highest echelons of the best worst films ever made upon its 2010 release. Thanks to Birdemic's trailer – largely comprised of a scene where several almost-actors listlessly flap their arms at a handful of stock-still Commodore 64 maybe-eagles – the film immediately joined the likes of The Room and Sharktopus; films best watched drunk at 3am when your brain has lost the power to process competency.

And thanks to all this notoriety, there's going to be a Birdemic sequel. According to Dreadcentral, Birdemic 2: The Resurrection will be released in June, with screenings all over the world. This is uncharted territory. Films as bad as Birdemic aren't supposed to get sequels.

‘Birdemic 2: The Resurrection’ Trailer

Today’s biggest hits are often big-budget spectacles like The Hunger Games and The Dark Knight Rises that utilize a combination of acting talent, compelling drama and a sharp visual aesthetic to craft a story that audiences can lose themselves in.

Then, there are other films that – despite an obvious lack of all of the above – remain entertaining for the sheer absurdity of it all. To many audiences, these films are so bad they’re good, and it is in this camp that Birdemic 2: The Resurrection clearly calls home.

Courtesy of IMDb, the first trailer for the sequel to 2010’s Birdemic: Shock and Terror (as discussed on our Screen Rant Underground podcast) is now available. “Master of the romantic thriller” James Nguyen returns to ...
