Looking for an excuse to see Birdemic again and relive the magic of the latest so-bad-it’s good classic? Well, Rifftrax has you covered with a live screening of the film on October 25th. Read on for the details!

From the Press Release:
NCM® Fathom Events, RiffTrax, and IGN present “RiffTrax Live: BIRDEMIC” in movie theaters for only one night on Thursday, October 25th, at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT and tape delayed at 7:00 p.m. MT / 8:00 p.m. PT. The famed comedians from the cult classic “Mystery Science Theater 3000” (MST3K)—Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett—will reunite on the big screen to fire off their wisecracking commentary on “BIRDEMIC,” a modern classic in the pantheon of so-bad-it’s-good cinema. The hilarious riffing on this spine-tingling “thriller” will be broadcast LIVE from Nashville to participating movie theaters across the country—just in time for Halloween.

Tickets for “RiffTrax Live: BIRDEMIC” are available at participating theater box offices and online at FathomEvents.com. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change). The event will be broadcast to more than 550 select movie theaters across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.

“I don’t know what it is about ‘BIRDEMIC’—terrible acting, terrible sound, terrible directing, terrible editing—and yet there’s some sort of secret bad movie ingredient I can’t put my finger on that makes this simply one of the most fun bad movies of all time,” said Michael J. Nelson, RiffTrax creator and former host of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”

Directed by James Nguyen in 2006, “BIRDEMIC” is the story of Rod, a young software salesman on the brink of launching a solar panel business in Silicon Valley. Things really seem to be going Rod’s way, especially when he reconnects with beautiful high school classmate Nathalie, a model who Victoria’s Secret chooses out of the blue to be their new cover girl. Their unbelievably perfect world is shattered by a sudden, unexplained bird attack. The vultures team up with the eagles, and begin dropping caustic liquids and exploding like bombs (really!). Rod and Nathalie find themselves on a terror-filled ride up and down the coast, fighting off the vicious birds with their wits and…coat hangers. Yes, coat hangers.

“For fans of RiffTrax and MST3K, there’s nothing like experiencing Mike, Kevin, and Bill live on the big screen,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “Having the guys back again for this specially produced ‘BIRDEMIC’ event should take ‘riffing’ fans to a new level of laughter in theaters across the U.S.”

To celebrate the UK DVD release of the Psycho doc 78/52, we have a brand spanking new clip for you cats to go crazy over. Watch it quick; you don’t want to keep Mother waiting!

The flick, from director Alexandre O. Phillipe, features interviews with Walter Murch, Peter Bogdanovich, Guillermo del Toro, Jamie Lee Curtis, Osgood Perkins, Danny Elfman, Eli Roth, Elijah Wood, Bret Easton Ellis, Marli Renfro – body double for Janet Leigh in Psycho, Karyn Kusama, Neil Marshall, Richard Stanley, and many more.

An unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, the ‘Man behind the Curtain’, and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema, 78/52 references the number of set-ups (78) and the number of cuts (52) in the shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. One entire week out of the four weeks scheduled to shoot Psycho — a full quarter of the film’s production schedule — was dedicated to the infamous shower scene.

Joel David Moore to Write and Direct the Remake of Hit Korean Film Hide and Seek

Published

on

Joel David Moore is an actor we all know from his roles in James Cameron’s Avatar and Adam Green’s original Hatchet film. But did you know he also co-directed Adam Green’s psychological thriller Spiral? Well, he did and now the man is stepping back behind the camera for CJ Entertainment’s upcoming remake of the 2013 Korean Movie Hide and Seek.

Moore will write an adapted feature English-language screenplay for Hide and Seek in addition to directing the film. The original Korean version was written and directed by Huh Jung.

“Hide and Seek is a sharp, sophisticated thriller that created a lasting imprint on me,” said Joel David Moore. “I wanted to explore what could happen if we retold this story to an American audience, using the tools from the original story. We found a rich and complex world, relevant to our current race, class and power struggles we’re seeing here in America. I’m excited to partner with CJ Entertainment, perfect partners on this journey.”

CJ Entertainment is developing, financing and producing the film.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!

Synopsis:

Based on a phenomenon that actually happens, the film centers on a man searching for his long-lost brother stumbles upon a secret world of squatters living in the homes of unsuspecting tenants – a revelation that becomes all the more menacing when his home becomes the next target.

Hide and Seek is a social horror-thriller that builds upon themes related to the widening gap between the upper 1% and the lower class. As the population in urban areas balloon and real estate prices skyrocket, lower-income segments of society are finding themselves continually getting pushed out. This film explores the question of “what if” when those left marginalized decide to take matters, and homes, into their own hands.
