Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Birdemic: Shock and Terror

December 18th – December 31st

The most discussed and analyzed avian disaster film since THE BIRDS, BIRDEMIC is a tender love story, a graphic horror shocker, an urgent ecological warning, a testament to its creator James Nguyen’s enduring vision and a must-see “midnight movie” sensation.

Over the course of five years, Nguyen — the self-proclaimed “Master of the Romantic Thriller™” — crafted 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. 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 Birdemic?

Directed by James Nguyen | 2010 | 105 minutes | Not Rated | US | English

“What has made Mr. Nguyen a latter-day anti-genius to rival Edward D. Wood Jr., whose…PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE became legendary for its countless defects? ‘It’s something unexpected,’ Mr. Nguyen said. ‘Maybe it’s meant to be like that’.”New York Times
