The best-worst movie ever made? While my friends and myself have been passing around a scratched DVD copy of James Nguyen’s Birdemic: Shock and Terror for months now, last night our dreams came true as Bloody Disgusting hosted the red carpet premiere of the film to a sold out Los Angeles crowd (check out some quick pics and vids below, with a bigger report forthcoming). Tim & Eric hosted, birds fell from the mother effin’ ceiling and the buzz after the screening ranged from “I’m speechless” to “That WAS the best time I have ever had in a theater!” Am I over hyping it? F*ck no. Do you have to see it with a massive group of people to get the full enjoyment out of it? Yes. With an encore screening locked for here in LA on March 5th (info here), those of you in Austin, Texas will have the opportunity to be among the first to witness this “Romantic Thriller” (trademarked, LOL) with an actual audience (Tuesday, March 2, 2010 @Alamo Drafthouse). Our suspicions where dead on. Birdemic works, and it works unbelievably. Move over The Room, cause the eagles and vultures are attacking! Get all of the info and find links to tix on the Austin Facebook event page. We’d love to see yet another sold out crowd and hear back from some BD readers.
