if you want to watch a well written great horror movie about birds attacking watch "the birds". If you love really bad horror movies and you want a great movie to watch just for the laughs, then you must watch this movie. For the first part of the movie it is a love story (a badly written love story),, then BAM !!! the birds start attacking and dive bombing everything. There are explosions and crazy fake eagles and,,, well you just have watch it. loved it. can't wait for the sequel coming out this summer !! hope they didn't try to make it into a real horror movie,, that would just ruin all the fun !

Birdemeic: Shock and Terror seems like a sincere effort to make a good film, but it is so inept that it is funny. The fun with this kind of movie is watching it with a group of friends and commenting on it, like Riff Tracks or Mystery Science Theater 3000. If they made it bad on purpose, that would ruin the fun, but it really does seem like they were trying to make a good film. Trying, but failing. It is fun to write reviews of bad films, showing off how clever you are with the put downs. I'm not really in the mood, but would instead just offer some constructive criticism. The acting, script, and special effects were all bad. If there was an intended message about protecting the environment, it came off as too preachy, and the message backfired. It made legitimate concerns about the environment seem like the crazy ramblings of well meaning but misinformed conspiracy theorists. The plot seemed to be more driven by wish fulfillment than anything else. Some nerd in Silicone Valley was having a fantasy about getting rich selling software and then dating some dame who wouldn't give him the time of day back in High School. Sure, she wouldn't even look at him back then, but now that she is a cover model for Victoria's Secret, she's all over him like a cheap suit. The script was probably written while fantasizing over a Victoria's Secret catalog. With one hand. The wooden acting of Alan Bagh didn't help me suspend my disbelief. This romance consumed over half of the film, before the first bird attack even occurred. Compare that to Hitchcock, The Birds, where the tension continually builds, climaxing in a crescendo of birds of a feather flocking together. Director James Nguyen is no master of suspense. Birdemic seems more concerned with the mores of dating, and establishing the fact that although the fashion model played by Whitney Moore is beautiful, she is not a shallow air head, and she's looking for a serious committed relationship. Bagh's boss on the other hand is from the hit it and quit it school. He tells him that he needs a fancy fast car to bag the babes, like a Ferrari. Later, he seems to have a change of heart and shows interest in an environmentally friendly hybrid, but is he just fronting? Another mixed message is sent by showing him with his Asian girlfriend while John Lennon's Imagine (or a close enough to suggest but not to be sued rip off) plays. There is a poster or a web site address for an Imagine foundation. Is this an endorsement of Lennon and his politics, or an attack? Oh, Yoko, your love will turn me on? As the two lovebirds celebrate their respective successes: the sale of Bagh's software company for 10 million dollars and Moore's landing the Victoria's Secret cover--in scenic Half Moon Bay during the Pumpkin Festival the birds begin to attack. The special effects are really amateurish and no matter what angle the camera points at, the birds are always directly in front. Two children are rescued, but they quickly go from being terrified of losing their parents to whinning about eating fish and sea weed instead of a happy meal. There is another character they encounter, who looks like Woody Harrelson in a long wig. He is presented as a tree hugger, but again the message is undercut. Is he supposed to be the voice of reason, or just some conspiracy nut crying in the wilderness? As we ponder this question, he hears a mountain lion, and high tails it back to his tree house. And so should you. So should you.
