You might not have heard of BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR and, believe me, it's your loss.

The film had its premiere in 2008, but didn't really make a splash until early last year when Tim and Eric (of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) hosted the L.A. premiere of the film. Severin Films acquired the rights shortly after, and on Tuesday, they released a special edition DVD and Blu-ray of BIRDEMIC on an unsuspecting public.

The film is one of the greatest "so bad it's good" films ever made (my holy trinity is THE ROOM, TROLL 2, and BIRDEMIC) filled with wooden acting, a nonsensical plot, and notoriously bad NES-level CGI work.

Most of BIRDEMIC's charm however, is owed to the director and Master of the Romantic Thriller™, James Nguyen. Nguyen's sincerity is a big reason why BIRDEMIC succeeds- you can tell that he tried to make a good movie. I leave you with a video of the always charming Nguyen sigining the first autographed copy of the BIRDEMIC DVD. Check out the video after the break!
