A platoon of eagles and vultures attack Hollywood, California. Why did the eagles and vultures attack? Who will survive?
Bill is a struggling filmmaker; Gloria is an aspiring actress. Rod, a Silicon Valley millionaire, finances Bill’s film, a dream come true until eagles and vultures attack Hollywood and it’s up to Rod, his girlfriend Nathalie, new friends and old to mount the resistance. Who will survive? Birdemic II, you asked for it.
Arm yourself with a coat hanger…you asked for it.
The official trailer for the highly anticipated film Birdemic 2: The Resurrection, written and directed by the Master of Romantic Thrillers James Nguyen! The trailer is pretty hilarious, although a bit on the nose. With that said, we have heard from people close to the project that there’s nothing meta about it — Nguyen still believes he’s a master filmmaker. I hope it’s as entertaining as the trailer!
“In this sequel to cult favorite Birdemic: Shock and Terror, a flock of eagles and vultures wreak havoc amidst blossoming romance 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 Angelinos they encounter as they battle angry birds and a host of new enemies.” READ MORE
Having been the site to discover Birdemic: Shock & Terror (thanks to some of my good friends), you’d think I’d be one of the first to jump on the bandwagon for Birdemic II: The Resurrection. Unfortunately that’s not the case.
Even though many will fight with me on this, James Nguyen’s original indie endeavor is 100% authentic. It’s a man’s true vision to create a Hitchcockian “romantic drama” inspired by Hitchock’s The Birds.
With Birdemic II: The Resurrection, Alan Bagh, Whitney Moore, Chelsea Turnbo and Thomas Favaloro all star in a meta-Birdemic film, an effort by Nguyen that’s incredible self-aware, and thus, in my opinion, not going to be funny. In short, it’ll be a spoof of Birdemic by a director who is now in on the joke.
Gearing up for the San Diego Comic-Con, Severin has released a teaser trailer for the sequel that proves my point. Nguyen, who used to be proud of his ingenuity, has taken to the Uwe Boll camp with this footage by spoofing the end credit joke of The Avengers. It’s without a shadow of a doubt not funny, IMO. What do you guys think?
The sequel, arriving later this year, begins when “a platoon of eagles and vultures attack Hollywood, California. Why did the eagles and vultures attack? Who will survive?”
