These Birds Will “Shock” You!
I love movies. ALL KINDS OF MOVIES. Therefore, I LOVE “BIRDEMIC!”

“Vice” has a great mini-documentary from Evan Husney that looks at the making of this film…here is what you need to know:
In January 2009, software salesman James Nguyen traveled to the Sundance Film Festival to self-promote his low-budget independent horror film “Birdemic: Shock and Terror.”
