Here’s the trailer to the sequel to classic “Birdemic.” The new movie looks like a tongue in cheek take on original. Someone told the director, James Nguyen, he was funny. Big mistake. Now Nguyen is trying to be funny. But he’s tried to be Hitchcock for a few films, now he’s trying be Tarantino. Hopefully Nguyen will do as good a job as Tarantino as he did being Hithcock.
Press “Like” or this woman will shoot you!
Here’s the description from IMDB: “A platoon of eagles and vultures attack Hollywood, California. Why did the eagles and vultures attack? Who will survive?”
Listen to MST3K’s Kevin Murphy talk about riffing on “Birdemic,” the origin of Tom Servo and what he thinks of TV’s Frank (Spoiler: He likes him)
For eleven years Murphy was a writer for MST3K; for nine of those years, he also voiced and operated the robot Tom Servo, replacing original cast member J. Elvis Weinstein. After taking over the role of Servo, an anonymous person sent him a 6-foot-long (1.8 m) banner that read “I HATE TOM SERVO’S NEW VOICE.” Flattered by the enormous amount of effort taken to heckle him, Murphy hung the banner in his office for over a year. During the final three years of the series, he additionally portrayed Professor Bobo, an English-speaking mountain gorilla in the style of Planet of the Apes.
