A part of the programme for this years Leamington Underground Cinema Festival – we are screening the legendary BIRDEMIC: SHOCK & TERROR on Thursday 9th October at The Zephyr Lounge. Joining the bill for the evening will be Leamington’s foremost musical trio and saviours of Art Rock, The Rosenberg Appeal, who will be playing a very special set for your aural entertainment.
There are bad films, there are terrible films, there are the sort of films that make you want to go and live in a cave with only the angry voices in your head for company… then there is BIRDEMIC: Shock and Terror.
Ostensibly your average straight-faced romantic drama monster disaster movie (with an amazingly subtle environmental subtext). Birdemic is the tale of star-crossed lovers Rod and Nathalie caught up in a terrifying plague of killer birds. This is a film so intrinsically, hilariously flawed in every possible way that it has to be seen to be believed.
MARVEL! At the special effects that look like they were done on a commodore 64
GASP! At the nail-biting action sequences involving coat hangers
SWOON! At Rod’s romantic pursuit of Nathalie – which comes across like a man with serious head injuries stalking a woman with very poor judgement
THRILL! To the infamous boardroom clapping scene that goes on for far too long.
