I don’t know how you spent your spring break, but I spent a very strange part of mine watching “Birdemic: Shock and Terror.” Fans of bad movies everywhere might have already heard of it. Three years after being made, “Birdemic” is finally available for all to see on Netflix. It’s not as bad as the trailer makes it look; it’s worse. Filled with awful special effects, nonsensical dialogue, terrible editing, and an environmental message that sends the environmental movement back about 30 years, few films can top this catastrophe created by James Nguyen.

No bad film has ever made me this angry. After watching “Birdemic,” I felt the need to break my television set, and then watch something good in order for me to regain my grip on what a good movie is.

“Birdemic” might anger you, or possibly bore you to death, but I can’t say you won’t have a good time watching it. Just get a big group of friends together, and prepare to laugh out loud for 90 minutes straight. “Birdemic” will certainly one day earn its place next to the likes of “The Room,” “Troll 2,” and “Plan 9 from Outer Space” as one of the worst movies ever made.

To get a preview of the ridiculousness, watch the trailer after the jump.
