Critic Reviews for Birdemic: Shock And Terror

Nguyen's DIY-fingerprints are on every frame. Like The Room, it's the antidote to mass culture -- a singular auteur with a dream.

August 27, 2010 | Rating: 3/5

Howlingly bad films are a dime a dozen, but the evident Ed Wood-like sincerity with which writer-director James Nguyen lovingly crafted this compendium of cinematic don'ts gives it a goofy, almost surrealist charm.

Simply foul.

A shot-on-video reworking of The Birds as a screwy commentary on the dangers of global warming, Birdemic: Shock and Terror pours every stupid horror movie cliché into an abstract road movie ...

June 30, 2017 | Full Review…

so dull, incompetent and ridiculous that it can and will be championed only by a repeat audience of ironists and iconoclasts looking for the next cult film to worship.

Birdemic appears to be completely sincere, an attempt by Nguyen to make a serious and moving work of art. So what if it moves us to tears with laughter?

Audience Reviews for Birdemic: Shock And Terror

An embarrassing dreck that is so bad it defies comprehension, with what seems to be the most incompetent editing and worst (unmixed) sound ever. And what to say of those ridiculous CGI birds? Even Ed Wood would run away from something like this. (Zero stars)

James Nguyen has constructed the worst piece of cinema in history, and the final product shows that he has never been to film school, never studied films or how to make them for that matter, and it became a cluster F$#K of a movie, filled with cheap gags, the worst visuals on the face of the earth, stomach turning sound design, horrendous editing, and direction that makes absolutely no sense. With takes being reused over and over again and effects that could have been created by a kid in grade school learning after effects, "Birdemic" is THE WORST film I have ever seen and will ever see. The funny thing is, I hoped the entire time, that this film was a joke, but it is surely not. Let's just say that you must be extremely bored if you take the time to watch this thing.

While the Room is so amazingly bad it's amazing, Birdemic is so amazingly bad it's painful. Must be seen to be believed. Can't wait for the sequel in 3D Extra bonus: My elementary school principal is in this.
