Birdemic: Shock and Terror, with Q&A


The Cinefamily presents this 2009 independent film, which sounds like an exploitation variation on Alfred Hitchcock's classic THE BIRDS. Director James Nguyen and actors Britney Moore and Alan Bagh will be on hand to answer questions. From the website:

"The most discussed and anticipated avian-based disaster film since the The Birds, Birdemic: Shock And Terror is equal parts both epochal tale and cinematic warning shot. It tells the story of a couple unexpectedly and unforgettably caught in the eye of a feather-based storm -- an apocalyptic attack winging down from the skies in a twisted morass of feathers, talons and blood-soaked claws. And the man that fired the shot across the diegetic bow of cineastes everywhere? That would be writer-director-dream factory foreman James Nguyen. One of cinema's most persistent imagineers, Nguyen (legally trademarked as "The Master of the Romantic Thriller"™) funded his masterwork with savings accrued from his day job as a Silicon Valley software salesman. No less than five years in the making, Birdemic stands as a testament to Nguyen's dark, enduring vision."
