RiffTrax (Almost) Live: BIRDEMIC

This October, the RiffTrax crew takes aim at the shockingly bad BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR. The riotous riffing will take place during a live event, broadcast to theatres across the country by Fathom Events. The screening will be broadcast live on the east coast, but Los Angeles viewers, like those on the rest of the west coast, will have to be satisfied with a tape-delayed version, starting 8:00 p.m.

Whether the RiffTrax comedy team (which is comprised of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 alumni Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy) can possibly surpass the unintentional hilarity of BIRDEMIC is an open question, but you can listen to a sample of their recorded commentary by watching the embedded video.

This is not the first time that RiffTrax has taken its patented brand of irreverent humor to theatres: Nelson, Corbett, and Murphy have live-riffed on such films as THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959), JACK THE GIANT KILLER (1962), and MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE, the execrably bad horror film previously lambasted on MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000.
