Sitting at a woeful “1.8” on IMDb, it seemed almost inevitable we’d turn our eyes skyward and examine the notorious Birdemic, widely regarded as one of the all-time worst films ever made.
Not to be mistaken for The Birds, the Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece this piece of portmanteau poop was allegedly inspired by, Birdemic: Shock and Terror is one for the ages.
When questions arise as to what’s the worst movie ever made, The Room and Plan 9 From Outer Space are both (we believe unfairly) brought up. But opinions are like a certain part of the human anatomy: everyone’s got one.
We think this “independent romantic horror film,” written, directed, and produced by James Nguyen, is a bit of a gem and while bad, is undeniably charming.
In addition to the wiggy performances, some of the most inane exposition you’ll ever see and mindblowingly bad sound, there are the legendarily um, “memorable” effects.
Birdemic is strangely hypnotic, but unlike hypnosis you won’t take off your pants in front of a room full of strangers and squawk like a chicken.
The enviro preaching is downright hilarious and unexpected.
