Seen the trailer?





Now you probably wish you hadn't. And no, it's not a spoof, the director was super serious about it.

Edited to not give off the impression that it's a new movie.

It was also released in 2010. In fact there's supposed to be a sequel this summer.

I watched it because Bloody Disgusting called it "the best worst movie of 2010," and I'm all for bad movies. Smiley: laugh

2010?! I was told it hadn't been released yet. Smiley: glare Of course, I probably should have checked the date on YouTube. Smiley: facepalm

Dang it, 2010 is where all the win is at.

Can't believe you sat through the whole thing. I could barely last the trailer. It had that Uwe Boll thing going on, except with a crappier budget, apparently.

It amuses me that "The Birds" had better effects 40 years ago than this movie has today.

Well, Alfred Hitchcock was pretty awesome when it came to camera effects.

Uwe Boll makes better movies than this, and I can't believe I just typed that.

It seems to be one of those movies that are so bad, they even passed the hilariously bad phase.

'Visionary' writer and director, yeah right :D

edited to add: I just checked IMDB, this movie gets a 2.0 score. Which seems rather high imo.

And the sequel's due in 2012. In 3D. That'll be great, won't it?

No?

What a strange, awkward, interview that was. I would have chalked him not understanding basic turns of phrase & similar stuff up to being foreign, but he said he had been in America since '75. He didn't seem to understand that people would only watch the movie ironically.

I mean, Adam's "fowl language" pun wooshed him. Jeez.
