Legend. Virtuoso. Prodigy. Master of his craft. No matter what title you choose to bestow upon director James Nguyen, the fact remains that he is the man responsible for one of the most unimaginable feats of moviemaking in the history of modern cinema: Birdemic: Shock and Terror. The cult movie sensation that defined a generation. Now, following a prestigious, sold-out run across North America and Europe, this extraordinary film is coming to DVD/Blu-ray via Severin Films, with extras including deleted scenes, interviews, featurettes, and audio commentary courtesy of Nguyen and stars Alan Bagh and Whitney Moore. In anticipation of the release, B-D was recently afforded the opportunity of chatting with Nguyen – unquestionably the “Master of the Romantic Thriller” – to discuss in great detail his breathtaking modern masterpiece of killer bird horror. See inside for the full interview.
February 27th will mark the one year anniversary of the unforgettable “Birdemic World Premiere” at Cinefamily hosted by Tim & Eric. It was the night that kick-started “The Birdemic Experience Tour” which brought James Nguyen’s vision to over 60 cities around the world, ignited an A-list media frenzy earning feature articles in the NY Times and TV segments on CBS Sunday Morning. And now, one year later, Nguyen encourages us all of us to relive that night in our own living rooms surrounded by buddies and coat-hangers (doubling this event as a beer party as well), to watch the greatest cult sensation of 2010. Enjoy the following video message from James Nguyen, and pre-order your copy of Birdemic: Shock And Terror on Amazon on DVD/Blu-ray February 22nd! Get the full specs.
