There’s blood in the air and egg on your face… the Angry Birds are back with a vengeance.
Wow- it’s almost the end of October and I feel like I’m in Halloween overdrive this week! There’s been tons of new videos, short films, comics and God knows what else scattered across the internets just waiting for eager-eyed strange kids like you and me. One of the most recent treats I’ve overlooked comes from G4 Films’ Epictober Film Festival which has seen every video game character from Mario to a particular flock of pissed off feathered vertebrate parodied – all under the guidance of director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Chillerama).
Our friend over at Freddy in Space recapped some his personal picks (definitely check out Kart Driver) and so I wanted to highlight one of my personal favorites as well, Birds of Anger, which actually served as the “closing selection” for the month long event yesterday. Directed by Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead), the short mashes up the popular mobile game Angry Birds with Hitchcock’s famous suspense flick The Birds to create something that makes this horror-loving video game nerd very happy.
The Bacons are visited by their next door neighbor, Anne, who has brought them a lovely basket of eggs, but unfortunately, the birds want their eggs back. The Birds Of Anger is a short film presented by G4 Films and directed by Gregg Bishop.
