Confessions of a Film Junkie: A review of “Birdemic: Shock and Terror”
By: Brian Cotnoir
Not satisfied with that review? I don’t care. I’m not going to write a full review of this film because it doesn’t even deserve one. This is the laziest and most unprofessional film I have seen so far. It’s not “so bad it’s good”. It’s not “so bad, it’ll make you angry”. It’s just bad. It has terrible acting, terrible effects, terrible sound & editing. This film is not a good spoof of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. I look at it like this: a film like “Sand Sharks” is a wonderful and enjoyable spoof on “Jaws”, but “Birdemic” is just a pile of crap that doesn’t deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as “The Birds”. This film is not even like a “done-bad-on-purpose” Horror film like “ThanksKilling”. Oh and the “going green” messages throughout the film were stupid as all hell. They made Captain Planet look like “The Big Bang Theory”, they were that dumb!
