“We sort of fell in love with it, just because it’s a great example of really inept filmmaking. At the same time, it’s so well-intentioned and earnest, you can’t help but like it,” says Murphy. “All these films, our challenge is to make them fun for an audience that doesn’t necessarily like bad films. [Birdemic] will be an even more joyous experience than our Manos show was, because the film doesn’t make you want to die.”
The simulcast live show -- transmitted from a theater in Nashville -- will also offer a new short and some Halloween surprises. It screens at 7 p.m. at numerous local theaters, including the Pavilions 15, 500 16th Street. Tickets are $12.50; to purchase yours and to get more info, including a complete list of theaters, visit www.rifftrax.com or www.fathomevents.com.
