Sharknado - the film about a tornado made of sharks!

You can tell that The Asylum have reached the proudest moment in their history when the tagline for their new film is simply, “Enough said!”

One of their projects being presented at the American Film Market this week is high-concept monster/disaster movie called Sharknado. Based on the artwork below it would seem that the Sharknado is a tornado made of sharks, as opposed to a single shark with the body of a tornado.

The predominant species of shark seen is the great white shark, from the Lamnidae family, but the second foremost shark appears to be a sharpnose shark from the family Carcharhinidae.

However, a closer inspection of the blurb suggests that there might be more to the Sharknado than first meets the eye. According to the official synopsis, this is the plot of the film.

When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace. And when the high-speed winds form tornadoes in the desert, nature’s deadliest killer rules water, land, and air.

With Hurricane Sandy barely abated and the East coast still struggling to recover from the damage, it seems likely that The Asylum would want to downplay the origins of the Sharknado. Potential investors might consider a hurricane made out of sharks to be in bad taste.

Who knows, perhaps the film was originally called Sharkicane (though that doesn’t sound quite right).

Thank god we have films like this to prepare us for any eventuality!
Ian Ziering is in this movie.


I didn't know he still existed!
This sounds like the most amazing thing ever.
I'm not ashamed to say that I will be viewing the film. I doubt it is going to be half as awesome as it's name and I idea would suggest.
This could lead to a whole new genre: Scorpionquake, Spidervalanche, and Bearricane.
Meh. I'll wait for the sequel; Sharknado vs. Octoquake.
I will never sleep again.

Damn....that's going to DESTROY Man of Steel! :oldrazz:
I heard about this a while back. Seen a poster of it on Facebook. It's somewhere in a sea of photos in my laptop lol
Sheesh, the Home Alone dad is in it.

Someone's career peaked a while ago...
I'm surprised at the ingenuity they have in mashing up animals with disasters like this. As terrible as Hollywood is at originality, they seem to be even worse when they try to create something new. At least this movie won't take itself seriously.
So, do they provide the drugs during those brainstorm meetings, or do you have to bring your own?
I'm actually tempted to watch this. I have no idea why. :confused:
i don't care if its bad, i must see it on the premise alone
The Asylum in this case, Roger Corman in others.

I am glad Asylum didn't shameless rip off a movie this time. As for the premise, I can't even lie after watching that trailer...
