This is fucking amazing.

Soon, the couple’s dream vacation becomes a battle for humanity’s survival. ~ Cammila Albertson, Rovi
Oh god, I can’t stop laughing, I mean what the fuck. Birdemic was one of those movies that got recommended to me on Netflix and I couldn’t be happier with this recommendation. I mean did you watch the trailer? How could this not be one of the best bad, good movies out there? This…this got made. This even got edited and then distributed. And I am so happy that all these little pieces of a big puzzle were complete and given to the movie going audience. It’s one of my favorite so bad it’s good movies that I will sit and watch this whenever I get a chance. It’s brilliant terrible movie and I can’t stop recommending this movie.
Look at this movie….LOOK AT IT!
My lord that is glorious. I appreciate the fact that the director just went out and made a movie, but I mean he could have paid a little more than 100 bucks for the digital effects. But cheesy effects aside, that’s not even the best part of this movie. The birds in this movie are just off the fucking chain. They dive bomb into cars and explode! They fucking explode like little kamikazes. They even sound like planes dive bombing. They can spit acid or something and incredibly coordinated in their attacks.
And finally the acting. There is none. But I will say that the female lead Whitney Moore is incredibly easy on the eyes and I appreciate that as a film watcher.
If you enjoy bad movies, this is the best you are going to get. That is until the sequel comes out which does have a trailer and it’s amazing.
