One question, though: If a better planet is his ultimate goal—why birds? "It could be eagles and vultures attacking man, but it could be Hurricane Katrina," Nguyen answers. "Giant jellyfish showed up in Santa Monica Bay, or jumbo squid in Japan. Just watch the news. If you hear something unusual happening with animals, to me, a lot of that has to with global warming. It's a metaphor, the birds of prey, for what could happen if we keep living the way we are."

Whether it's an effective metaphor remains to be seen. But one thing's for sure: We're telling all our friends to go to the next screening, and to have a few drinks first.

Birdemic: Shock and Terror will screen at the IFC Center this Friday and Saturday night at 11:55 p.m.
