Is Birdemic: Shock and Terror the worst sci-fi movie ever made? We suspected it might turn out to be just that when we told you about it earlier this year, but now that Birdemic has been released, the BBC agrees, pointing out the film's "appalling dialogue," "a plot that doesn't make sense," and "special effects that are spectacularly bad."

Director James Nguyen's movie, which cost $10,000 to make, is an unintentional cross between Hitchcock's The Birds and Plan 9 from Outer Space. But that doesn't matter to Carl Daft of Severin Films, who picked up Birdemic: Shock and Terror for UK distribution.

"You can laugh at it or you can laugh with it," he said. "As long as you're laughing and having a good time, I don't really care which one it is."

The most frightening thing we learned from the BBC report is that Nguyen is already hard at work on his next movie. Its title?

Peephole: The Perverted.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
