    The whole thing seems like some kind of joke. Is this movie for real?

  2. Beccaon 04 Apr 2010 at 9:44 pm

    …this is the worst. I aspire to never see more of this.

    I think it’s a joke, it looks fan-made

  4. B. Macon 04 Apr 2010 at 10:29 pm

    I think it’s for real. Here’s a list of screenings.

  5. Beccaon 04 Apr 2010 at 11:15 pm

    Oh NO! I can’t believe it. But luckily it’s not polluting my Canadian airspace.

  6. B. Macon 04 Apr 2010 at 11:37 pm

    Dammit, it’s not fair that Washington has to suffer and Canada doesn’t. They have an entry form to request screenings, so maybe they’ll do one in Vancouver or Toronto. 😀

    Oh God! That looked absolutely terrible. It’s a Bats rip-off.

    Considering that an actual Classic horror film covering this same subject exists(Birds Alfred Hitchcock, 1963), then this is either a bad joke, a comedy gone bad or a cinematic travesty.

    On the Birdemic website, it says that “Partly inspired by Hitchcock’s The Birds & there is a cameo by Ms. Tippi Hedren (Melanie in The Birds).”

    If they bring it to Vancouver I will be there – heading a picket line.

  11. B. Macon 05 Apr 2010 at 1:13 pm

    Haha!

    I think this movie could be made into a pretty epic drinking game.

  13. B. Macon 05 Apr 2010 at 1:52 pm

    Take a sip each time a bird detonates itself or somebody swings a hanger.

  14. Beccaon 05 Apr 2010 at 5:58 pm

    Somebody has to see it and report back to the rest of us 😛

  15. B. Macon 05 Apr 2010 at 6:11 pm

    It’s showing in DC in two weeks. I’m tempted…

  16. B. Macon 05 Apr 2010 at 6:13 pm

    I’m sort of wondering what the in-story reason is for them swinging hangers at the birds, but it would probably make my brain explode like a dive-bombing seagull.

  17. Beccaon 05 Apr 2010 at 7:37 pm

    Go see it, satisfy the curiousity! It’ll probably suck epically, but it looks good for a laugh if nothing else!

  18. B. Macon 05 Apr 2010 at 10:17 pm

    OH DEAR GOD. I’m watching a clip of it now.

  19. Beccaon 06 Apr 2010 at 12:14 pm

    I made the mistake of watching a clip, too. Why would ANYBODY think this was a good idea?!

  20. B. Macon 06 Apr 2010 at 3:44 pm

    One casting decision that I found was particularly amusing was an ~125 pound guy that looks like me playing a Marine combat veteran from Iraq. At one point he’s holding his assault rifle one-handed, firing wildly and there’s STILL no recoil.

  21. A.Joneson 06 Apr 2010 at 7:32 pm

    What sort of masochists would actually watch a whole movie of this drivel?

  22. B. Macon 06 Apr 2010 at 8:21 pm

    The politics was probably the worst of it. In the 5 minutes I saw, they pinned the psycho birds on global warming and fossil fuels. And then there was the 125 pound Marine seriously asking “why can’t we give peace a chance?” perhaps 10 seconds before making a bird explode with an assault rifle.

    Wow…just…wow. This is probably the wort thing I’ve ever seen. i’d rather go and wach Twilight, whose trailer accually looked decent.

  24. Miss Mynaon 10 Apr 2010 at 5:41 am

    Reminds me of that Alfred Hitchcock movie… o.O

  25. Beccaon 10 Apr 2010 at 6:58 pm

    I just showed this to my brother and we were literally rolling around on the ground laughing… I think I actually hurt myself laughing. But that cawing is TERRIBLE, so annoying.
