The Traveling Salvation Show that is Birdemic: Shock And Terror has set its sights on the right coast.
You read correctly; after pillaging and dive bombing theaters in Los Angeles, Austin and Phoenix, James Nguyen’s Cautionary Epic has plotted a course for the isle of Manhattan. “And this time,” says Severin CEO Carl Daft, “there is no Fail Safe option.”
For its New York premiere, Birdemic has found a delightfully unlikely nesting spot; Gotham’s state-of-the-independent-art IFC Center.
Daft: “While Birdemic may be one of the great cinematic disasterscapes of modern times, providing Bayian thrills with McG’s-esque chills, Birdemic, houses, at its centre, a wildly fluttering independent heart. We look forward to Birdemic satiating the deepest hunger of Manhattan’s most discriminating cineastes and doing the memory of Maya Deren proud.”
In anticipation of what is sure to be one of the most disquieting demands for tickets this calendar year, the IFC Center in its sage wisdom has scheduled Birdemic for not one, but two consecutive midnight screenings. So see it once, see it twice, but see it in person at the IFC Center, March 26th and 27th.
Tickets available here.
