If you like horror films that are so bad they’re good, you’ll love this…
The official trailer for Birdemic 2: The Resurrection, written and directed by the Master of Romantic Thrillers™ James Nguyen (yes, he trademarked that), can now be viewed exclusively here on imdb.com
In this sequel to cult favorite Birdemic: Shock and Terror, a flock of eagles and vultures wreak havoc amidst blossoming love in Hollywood, California, leaving bloodshed and destruction wherever they hover. The story features original ‘Birdemic’ survivors Rod and Nathalie, who are joined by new friends—struggling filmmaker Bill, aspiring actress Gloria and several other Angelenos they encounter as they battle angry birds and much more.
Visionary writer/director James Nguyen said his inspiration for the film was the La Brea Tar Pits. “I went to the museum at the Tar Pits, which had an exhibit of ancient eagles and vultures,” he recalled. “And as I walked through it, I said, ‘This is Birdemic 2.’” He added, “The Tar Pits are a major hint why the birds attack LA.”
The original Birdemic: Shock and Terror sold out screenings across the country. In fact, it had such a huge following that a sequel had to be made—if, for no other reason, than to appease the demand of its fans. If you watch clips from it on youtube.com, you’ll laugh your ass off. The birds make high-pitched noises that sound like whining puppies, while their stoic prey, who try their hardest to “act” [operative word] scared, attempt to fight back with coat hangers. Seriously. I can only imagine what the sequel, set to be released in select cities in November 2012, has in store. One thing’s for sure: it will certainly keep you guessing.
