February 27th, 2011, is a day sure to go down in infamy. What’s happening, you ask? It’s the one-year anniversary of the unforgettable Birdemic world premiere at Cinefamily. And now, one year later, director James Nguyen is urging everyone to relive that night with their own “Birdemic Fest“.
Below is a video in which Nguyen encourages us all to host a Birdemic Fest in our living rooms surrounded by buddies and coat hangers (doubling this event as a beer party as well) to watch the greatest cult sensation of 2010. Birdemic Fest = Beer + Birdemic on DVD/Blu-ray.
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 BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR, perching onto Blu-ray and DVD from Severin Films on February 22, 2011.
An outrageous homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR caught the attention of such mighty media powers as CBS News and The New York Times when Severin Films released it in more than 50 cities, where it enjoyed sold-out midnight showings. Judged an instant cult classic and hailed for its chutzpah as much as its cinematic ingenuity, the movie is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
Alan Bagh stars as Rod, a Bay Area software salesman (named in apparent tribute to The Birds star Rod Taylor) who has just made a million-dollar deal. Riding high on his success, Rod snags a date with Nathalie (Whitney Moore), his former high school classmate who has become a knockout lingerie model. They hit if off immediately but awake from their first night together in a quaint seaside town to the horror of eagles and vultures swooping down and attacking the locals, turning this picturesque locale into an avian hell on earth.
Hollywood legend Tippi Hedren of Hitchcock’s 1963 classic makes a special appearance in the global cult movie phenomenon that Videogum says “might end up being the greatest film of all time!”
