Another sharknado is on its way to New York City and SyFy just released the first teaser trailer for Sharknado 2: The Second One.
If you don’t know what a “sharknado” is because you didn’t see the first film or can’t decipher made-up, compound words, then you’re letting one of the great joys in life pass you by. This time, the Big Apple is in the tornado’s path as it scoops up a giant handful of nature’s most ferocious sea beast and flings them into heavy populated areas of delicious people. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid have returned for the sequel and are joined by Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, 30 Rock’s Judah Friedlander and Judd Hirsch. The film premieres Wednesday, July 30th on the SyFy Channel.
The true beauty of a movie like Sharknado besides the fact that it fits so snuggly into the “so bad, it’s good” category of films is that we really don’t need to take a lot of time to describe it. Sure there are some character stories and explanations for this strange weather phenomena that fit into the plot but you don’t care about that stuff. You just want to see the “sharknado” reduce a major metropolis’ population in the most ridiculous and over the top manner possible and watch the hero kill sharks using equally ridiculous methods. Last time, the biggest and best kill featured Ian Ziering literally flying into a great white shark’s mouth with a running chainsaw. How in the hell are they going to top that? The only thing we can think of is a chainsaw wielding shark jumping into Ian Ziering’s mouth.
