Editorial Reviews

Product Description

It is a tender love story. A graphic horror shocker. An urgent ecological warning. And around the world, it became the must-see 'midnight movie' sensation of the year: From writer/producer/director/visionary James Nguyen - The Master Of The Romantic Thriller - comes the story of a sexy lingerie model (Whitney Moore) and a successful software salesman (Alan Bagh) on a weekend getaway to a quaint Northern California town. But when the entire region is attacked by millions of homicidal birds, their picturesque paradise becomes a winged hell on earth. Can mankind now survive the avian onslaught of Birdemci? Hollywood legend Tippi Hendren of Hitchcock's The Birds makes a Special Appearance in the global cult movie phenomenon that Videogum says "might end up being the greatest film of all time!"

Amazon.com

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

I just think it's THE worst movie ever made!
Michael Butts
EVERYTHING about this movie is inept -- the editing, sound, music, the silly special effects.
E. A Solinas
Honestly you have to watch this movie to understand just how bad it is.

This film might quite possibly be the ne plus ultra of bad filmmaking, Ed Wood, Jr. notwithstanding. And I almost missed it. The first scene, a thoroughly quotidian scene in which the film's dashing young hero enters a restaurant and is shown to a booth, was so bad that I nearly stopped the movie after that single minute. But something, perhaps that apparently inborn trait that draws us, like moths to bug zappers, to the grotesque in life--traffic accidents, open wounds, Lindsay Lohan--or maybe just the laziness that comes with a Y chromosome and keeps me from extending the energy to push the remote, made me keep watching. And to think what I would have missed!

Birdemic is astonishingly inept. The coverage, for instance, during any of the conversations in the film is embarrassingly bad with the result that there are unnatural pauses interspersed throughout any conversation (the flaw that nearly prevented me from watching the film). Or perhaps it's the editing that truly sucks. A few shots should have ended long before they actually did. At any rate, the film moves along ineptly for a good 15 or 20 minutes until it achieves its true glory, something hinted at in a few scenes but never fully realized until the middle of the film. I'm talking about the special effects.

There is a scene early in the film in which the aforementioned dashing hero and the fetching heroine are on a date. Those who have seen the date montage for Leslie Nielsen and Priscilla Presley from, I think, the first

I love really bad movies. Troll 2, Thankskilling, Broken Springs...terrible horror movies are kind of my forte. When I saw the trailer for Birdemic on Netflix (and that it received 3 stars) I thought it looked perfect.

Unfortunately, Birdemic is not a movie that is so bad it's funny. It's a movie that is so bad it is way past the point of being funny. It's really just sad. The first third of the movie is backstory on the characters and is painfully boring; the acting is some of the worst I have ever seen; the "story" makes no sense at all; and the editing might be the worst editing any movie has had ever, in the whole history of filmmaking.

God, this movie is bad.

As most reviewers have unanimously agreed, This is the "best" worst movie ever made. I just think it's THE worst movie ever made! Granted, I howled in sheer disbelief at the hilariously awful bird effects, but that certainly isn't meant to be complimentary. Writer/director (?) James Nguyen may have been a precocious child running around making home movies with his family but he evidently suffers from Peter Pan syndrome and has never grown up.
There are no redeeming qualities and its undeserved cult status has prompted an upcoming sequel called BIRDEMIC - THE RESURRECTION and Alan Bagh is reprising his role as Rod. If Bagh isn't the worst actor in cinematic history, I don't know who is. I won't go into the other horrible "actors", the absence of sound editing, the pompous global warming warning. The birds sum it up---unless you want to experience the most embarrasing 90 minutes in the anals (oops..annals) of movie history, AVOID.

Holy crap...

For the interest of full disclosure, I didn't actually buy this product from Amazon. I watched Birdemic on YouTube where it is completely free for anyone willing to put up 90 minutes of their time that they will never ever get back.

To start, I feel like I should point out that I'm very seasoned in the world of "bad movies." I own the Ed Wood Box, Starcrash, Troll 2, Konga, Dragon Wars, and every MST3k DVD box set except the unbelievably expensive vol 9. I heartily enjoy movies that are so bad they're entertaining. "Birdemic" is not one of those movies.

It can basically be split into two parts:

Part 1: Rod is a software salesman, Natalie is a model. They meet in a restaurant, talk, date, then fall in love. This takes 47 minutes. If you're wondering how this could possibly take the better part of an hour, please be informed that you will see tons of scenes of people parking cars, walking in and out of houses, and Natalie having unbelievably awkward conversations with her planet-sized mom. You will see Rod succeed at his job, in a way that is filmed as though it were a cutscene from a PS1 videogame. You will also see a handful of Natalie/Rod dates, which should prove to be cautionary examples of exactly what not to do on a date, including stilted dialogue, questions that sound more like a job interview than any known normal social interaction, ridiculous dancing to a karaoke R&B singer, and going on a DOUBLE DATE to a filming of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH!!!! Nothing against Al Gore and his honestly legitimate but occasionally ill-executed crusade to convince people to give an actual damn about the planet they live on, but an honest-to-god DOUBLE DATE to his SLIDE SHOW MOVIE????? SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!
