Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today’s monster comes from a movie that I watched so that you don’t have to – Birdemic: Shock and Terror. It’s kind of like The Birds, except that it is absolutely terrible. The gist is that humans have screwed up the planet so much that birds start attacking us, but in this universe the only birds that exist are hawks that look slightly more realistic than the graphics for The Oregon Trail.
I’ve heard a lot of praise for this as a cult movie, but Birdemic is the one thing a bad movie should not be: boring. Every single aspect of this movie is hilariously cheap and awful, but the plot is so plodding and the acting is so lifeless that it’s hard to enjoy the absurdity. Honestly, the best thing about this movie is the title. So, without further ado, I present to you THE BIRDEMIC.
Yes, that GIF really is from the movie. Horrifying, isn’t it?
Have a good week, fiends. For those of you in the U.S. who celebrate Thanksgiving, be safe, have fun, and remember that one day soon the turkeys will rise up and fight back.
