"Birdemic: Shock and Terror" makes its Denver premiere this weekend, and director James Nguyen will make an appearance at the Saturday night showing.

"Birdemic" will headline Midnight Madness at Landmark's Esquire Theatre on Friday and Saturday.

The movie has been praised in the  New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, and the BBC World News for being so bad, it's awesome.

It's also been selling out midnight showings around the country over the past few months.

"Birdemic: Shock and Terror," is a love story first, at least according to Nguyen.  But it's also the tale of a flock of killer eagles and vultures that attack a small California town.

In an interview last week Nguyen said, "I always recommend you have a few good beers before seeing it." 

Nguyen had no idea he had the makings of a cult classic when he put $10,000 of his own money into this labor of love. 

"If it's an indie cult film, so be it," he said. "It's something I never considered, it just came to me.  You can only have one cult film and that's it."

At least until the sequel.  Nguyen is now shopping "Birdemic: the Resurrection" to a major Hollywood studio.
