Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle is a 2022 American romantic horror film about a flock of sea eagles attacking the coastal town of Santa Cruz. Why did the birds attack? Who will survive?

Written, produced and directed by James Nguyen, the movie is obviously a sequel to his infamously awful Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2008) and equally as bad Birdemic 2: The Resurrection (2013). Carl Daft and David Gregory of Severin Films are executive producers.

The Moviehead Pictures production stars Ryan Lord, Julia Culbert, Marc DeNola, Alan Bagh, Damien Carter, Max Troia and Eric Swartz.

“I can’t believe that there was one of these movies much less three. There are long stretches without dialogue or even music. There’s no real story until it’s almost over. And by this point, either James Nguyen is in on the joke or so far into himself that he doesn’t realize what he’s making or probably both.” B&S About Movies

Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle is an hour of long lingering scenes where nothing happens, a 6-minute opening credit scene and 15 minutes of crazy birds. It almost begs the question: by the third film, was the writer/director making a bad film on purpose after the cult following of the first entry? I expected a bad film, but not something to fall asleep to.” Battle Royale with Cheese

Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle is almost too much – I found myself shaking my head and muttering “Oh Jesus” as much as laughing out loud this time, stunned as I was at how he had managed to take every bad aspect of the original and somehow make it worse – not necessarily laughably worse, just… worse. The endless preaching becomes a bit like water torture after a while and the action takes forever to start before fizzling out in much the same way as in the original. Is the film fun? Of course. The sense of outsider absurdity and misguided enthusiasm still carries it through.” The Reprobate

” …there sometimes is pleasure to be found in crappy films. But in order to provide any sort of amusement, a movie still has to be passably watchable. Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle is not. Some movies become cult classics for a reason, and just because it’s bad doesn’t make it good. I would not impose this film on my worst enemy, and I highly recommend you do not subject yourself to this 83 minutes of pure torture.” Screen Zealots

“The cheesy effects and action scenes that look like an ancient hunting game are somewhat amusing, but by this point, most viewers, except maybe those who repeatedly watch The Room and/or Troll 2, will be far beyond caring. I was hoping for some enjoyably cheesy fun from Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle but sadly there’s almost none to be had.” 1/5, Voices from the Balcony

Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle will be released in the Fall of 2022. It had its world premiere at Fantastic Fest in September 2022.
