Despite all odds James Nguyen (Birdemic: Shock and Terror) is back!

I still remember people trying to turn him away from further Birdemic movies an try to help him start a more reputable movie career but he would not be deterred. This is a man with a vision.

Close to seven years ago now- he said he plans to (first) film Birdemic 3: The Sea Eagle (and then sell the reboot rights) and by Golly he did it! After the second movie that leaned more into self- parody territory this finally looks to be a classic, earnest Nguyen doing his damnedest to save the world (mostly from the CGI birds but still). And it even has the original Birdemic alum Alan Bagh (now sporting a more hippie, bearded look).

“We have to do something about this damn global warming”

With distribution by Severin Films it seems like this one will get a surprisingly solid release– well, for this type of a movie. And the world premiere is just around the corner, it will be on this year’s Fantastic Fest (22-29 September). I for one missed these (exploding) CGI birds, it’s been a while.

You can say whatever you want about Mr. Nguyen but he’s a prime example that passion and blind determination can take you places.
