A tornado. Full of sharks. Attacking people.

Admit it, you're going to watch, am I right?

Without any other info I am going to assume Brooke Hogan is in this, since she is seemingly in every bad shark related movie they do.

No, I only watch the ones with Tiffany and/or Debbie Gibson (and even then, have many regrets afterward) and this one...

...doesn't.

Not by a long shot.

I actually did watch this last night, and it was so bad it was actually very funny. Before any logic is added to the plot. it starts off like you typical B horror movie. We have a cast of semi likeable people, we get some nice rescue scenes as the main hero of the story always stops to save every one he can, including a Bus of kids, even some of the death scenes are a bit creative. The one that made us laugh the most was the one flight school guy that was crushed by a hammer head.

Now as for a logic given it has no place here.

How can Sharks survive being in a vacuum the size and speed of a tornado? How can they survive smacking into cars, buildings, and hitting water from that height? How come when you dive chainsaw first into a Shark you can safely rescue someone from inside the shark that you didn't know was in there? And this movies idea of a romance subplot make no sense.

But if you dont really think about it this movie is really fun to watch and good for a few laughs.

They can't. If they stop swimming, they can't pass water over their gills and they die.

I'm sorry I missed this just based on my Twitter feed last night. People were having SERIOUS fun with this.

One of the local weather guys put "No Sharknadoes" on his weather forecast graphic this morning.

I was wondering what ever happened to Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. Now I know.

Maybe now they will get those long deserved Oscars, they have waited longer than Martin Scorsese!

This was certainly better than Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

I think the problem with movies like this is that you expect them to be so utterly absurd that it's almost hard to really enjoy it unless it just goes bat-shit crazy - and it just wasn't bat-shit crazy enough for me. It was close - and there were certainly moments (e.g. Ian Zerig sawing a falling great white shark in half with a chainsaw, etc) - but I really did feel like it was kind of dragging at points.

But the ending with Zerig sawing his way out of a shark only to find whatever-her-name-is who had, by that point, been in the shark for... what? 15 minutes or so? How was she not brain dead? Anyway, that whole scene nearly made the entire thing worth it.

Oh my God, it's worse than we thought! These are mutant sharks living in tornadoes without the need of water!

Fortunately they plummet from the tornado when shot.

This ruled.

I knew nothing of this until I heard a dj reference it this past Tuesday. I was immediately crestfallen that I missed this epic film. Needless to say, I will pay more attention when Sharknado 2 rolls around.


Oh, wait...................

'Sharknado 2,' set in New York City, greenlit by SyFy Channel

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on Water Street ...

The toothy breakout stars of the SyFy Channel’s “Sharknado” will be returning in a sequel to last week’s monster hit -- and the forecast calls for the next storm to touch down in New York City.

Though the project is not even at the script stage yet, the network greenlit “Sharknado 2” based on the social media whirlwind the original made-for-TV film inspired and the premise of dumping big fish on the Big Apple.

It’s not likely, however, that Damon Lindelof will be involved with the script for the film, set for a 2014 release, despite the “Lost” co-creator’s public plea on Twitter to give him a chance. “I am going to write the Sharknado sequel and I am going to do it before Sharknado is over,” he tweeted in mid-broadcast.

It’s also unclear whether stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid would be reeled in for another goaround.

“Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm - on television,” said Thomas Vitale, executive vice president for programming, said in statement. “The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel. What we can guarantee is that Sharknado 2 will be lots of fun.

“We'll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn't want our fans to worry they wouldn't get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year."

In the meantime, SyFy is asking fans to tweet subtitle ideas to @SyFymovies using the hashtag #Sharknado.

Not sure which was worse...the horribly wrong science or the pop-culture-reference lines.

"We're gonna need a bigger chopper?" Toss me one of those propane bombs while you're at it, so I don't have to suffer.

Caught the repeat last night. It was ridiculous but so over the top cheesy that I watched just to see people get eaten by sharks that can swim through the sand the characters were pure classic camp. I wouldn't even call it a B movie, more like C minus but fun to just zone out to with no expectations. In fact it was a perfect set up for Impact

'Sharknado' sets ratings record in its third airing

Don't think I've ever seen this before: Syfy's social media sensation "Sharknado" just delivered its biggest audience yet.

Not for its premiere airing. Not for its second airing. But for its third airing -- weeks after the film's original telecast.

The campy horror film delivered a record 2.1 million total viewers and 791,000 adults 18-49 on Saturday night. That's the most-watched encore for an original movie in Syfy history.

What's particularly impressive about the performance is that the film's debut telecast -- despite generating massive buzz on Twitter, clocking a whirlwind 5,000 tweets per minute during its peak -- initially delivered a somewhat disappointing 1.4 million viewers a few weeks ago.

But the social buzz continued after the film's premiere. Then the second airing climbed to 1.9 million viewers. And now it's crossed the 2 million mark.

There is, of course, a sequel in the works for next year, while the original "Sharknado" is getting the unusual honor of a limited theatrical release.

"Sharknado" will have its final Syfy airing this summer on Thursday, August 22, leading into the premiere of "Ghost Shark."
