Late Night: Sharknado Arrives

Thursday night a long anticipated masterpiece arrives on the SyFy Channel, SHARKNADO. And I’m totally stoked. Not only does star Ian Ziering (Steve Sanders from Beverly Hills 90210) and the very tired Tara Reid, but it has tornado-born sharks descending on Los Angeles because of climate change.

Best of all we have SHARKNADO as our Monday Movie discussion with writer Thunder Levin and director Anthony C. Ferrante.

I don’t know how another sharxploitation movie could top this. Sharkquake? Teenage Zombie Nurse Sharks?

Plots this silly are meant to discredit climate change or are they the only way climate change can get mentioned on tv?

Why not have a pool of sharks cross bred with lung fish so the Sharks once brought on land can move around and attack people.
Knowing the pentagon this might have already happened.

Reminds me of the SNL skit – Land Shark

Do disaster films do better in a bad economy are they escapism like horror films?
Or Dirty Harry films where a gun nut Don Knots on Mayberry character is moved from comedy to serious at least in a teen age boys violent fantasy world.

Disaster films were BIG in the 70s…


Lisa Derrick | Tuesday July 9, 2013 08:20 pm 8

I think the film will be astounding. We’re thrilled ot get it since so many people are sharxploitation fans, and it’s on SyFy Thurday–very awesome.


Lisa Derrick | Tuesday July 9, 2013 08:21 pm 9

(Plus STEVE SANDERS form the original BH 90201. I can proudly say I have seen EVERY episode. Love that show!)

I still think films like this are the only way climate change gets a mention among the Fox News set.
Topics that the powers that be don’t like can’t seem to get mentioned for the length of a full length film.

Disaster films – of epic dimensions in the 70s, but earth shattering disasters on the small screen in the 50s. Loved the giant ants, spiders, flying saucers.

So was punk rock and heavy metal if society is not allowed to confront a problem directly then society tries to show its discomfort in other ways. Disaster films, Dirty Harry films, Horror films, punk rock, heavy metal the audience wants to express different feelings of discomfort.
By the way how is Clint handling his meltdown at the GOP convention some might say he cost Mitt the election.

Does the ludicrous plot contain deeper warnings about climate change?

those were a direct reaction ot atom bomb tests. Invasin of the Body Snatchers was about the commies taking over. And Village of the Giants (1960s teen flcik) was about LSD–kids take something thier little bro whips up in a lab and they GROW relaly tall (LSD sensory side effect) and defy authority

I laughed so hard at Jaws I had to leave the theater before it was over.


Lisa Derrick | Tuesday July 9, 2013 08:46 pm 21

Jersey Shore Shark Attack is high on my to-watch list.

Listen humans, us sharks are tired of your bullshit. You jump us, you fin us, you demonize us, and now you global-warmingsploit us .. god, when is enough enough!

That said, the word “Sharknado” is delightful and makes me laugh.

This is timely film as people are talking about climate change.

A movie about mutant amphibious sharks with cholera might have potential(because, in a discussion about miniature schnauzers and poodles last year, a friend said “Anything with poo in it is good.”.

Actually, sharks ARE fish!
