It looks like cult favorite Troll 2
has some competition for the best worst movie you'll ever see: James Nguyen's ultra-low-budget Birdemic: Shock and Terror
has arrived on the wings of extraordinarily poorly animated birds. Things are going great for Rod; he's rising in the ranks at his job shilling software, and he's coupled up with his out-of-his-league high school crush, Nathalie. Trouble starts when acid-spitting, highly explosive (!) birds begin randomly attacking the city, endangering lives and threatening his success. Partly inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's work of genius, The Birds
, and presumably also loosely based on real life events of Nguyen himself who worked in Silicon Valley as a software salesman, Birdemic
is the sort of bad that's perfect for late-night movie screenings. And so the Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-995-6270 or www.landmarktheatres.com
) presents Birdemic
at midnight Friday and Saturday (August 6 and 7) at part of its Reel Late series. Tickets are $9.
