Sharknado 5 Global Swarming

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming
Directed by Anthony C Ferrante
Written by Thunder Levin, Scotty Mullen
Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Cassandra Scerbo, Masiela Lusha, Cody Linley, Charo, Chris Kattan, Fabio, Olivia Newton-John
SyFy | Asylum Productions
Release Date: Sunday, August 6th, 2017, 8:00pm ET

The most wonderful time of the summer is upon us; it’s Sharknado Time! Back in 2013, the Asylum produced the first Sharknado and it “stormed” social media and became an overnight sensation. Here we are, 4 films later ready for the fifth installment of the franchise that helped resurrect the careers of Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. These films are very dear to me, as this marks my 4-year anniversary writing and reviewing for Geeks of Doom. The Sharknado franchise checks all the boxes: sharks, disaster movies, celebrity cameos, hilariously awful special effects… in other words, it’s event TV. This time, the ‘nado has gone global!

Let’s be real, reviewing Sharknado 5: Global Swarming in the same way you review other films or television series it just pointless. You knew years ago from the title alone if these movies were for you. This is now an annual American event, like Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. Fans gather to watch the ridiculousness, laugh at the cameos, and see what crazy stuff the creators come up with next.

Sharknado 5 Global Swarming

It’s summer, it was just Shark Week, so it must be time for another Sharknado! Syfy channel’s annual event is soon approaching and this time, the ‘nados are going all over the planet, hitting some of the biggest cities with the largest populations of people aka bait. Whereas the 2013 original from The Asylum focused the hilarious weather phenomenon over Los Angeles, and its sequel went east to New York, things got out of hand quickly, heading to outer space by the time we got to sequels 3 and 4. This time, the jokes seems to edge political, with its title: Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, and its catchphrase, “Make America Bait Again.” No one and nowhere is off limits this time including the Queen of England (Charo), the Prime Minister (Chris Kattan), and the Pope (Fabio)!

Interview With The ‘Sharknado’ Series’ Baddest Momma – Tara Reid
Dr. Zaius   |  

Tara Reid Sharknado

It’s Summer! That means sun, beaches, blockbuster movies, and of course… shark infested tornadoes! That’s right, it’s time for another Sharknado! Back in 2013, the original Syfy channel film from the schlock studio kings The Asylum debuted, and became an instant hit on social media developing a huge following on twitter. The film’s two big stars were 90s icons Ian Ziering (90210) as Fin Shepard and Tara Reid (American Pie) as his ex-wife April Wexler. The craze around the first film has led to a new sequel each year since then, each one more ridiculous than the one before, and each featuring more and more celebrity cameos. The Sharknado films have taken these characters to space and back, across the United States, and now in the 5th installment, Global Swarming, around the world. Geeks of Doom got a chance to speak with April herself, Tara Reid, to discuss the upcoming Sharknado film, the franchise and her career.

Check out the interview below.

Sharknado 5

Topical political satire is the trendy thing. Even Netflix’s House of Cards felt cut and pasted out of the newspaper headlines. So with climate change on everyone’s mind, and the same week President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Accords, we now get the brand new title for SyFy’s newest entry in the “in”famous Sharknado series… Sharknado 5: Global Swarming! The fifth film will debut on SyFy channel on August 6th, carrying the tagline, “Make America Bait Again.”

TV Review: Sharknado: The 4th Awakens

Sharknado: The 4th Awakens
Directed by Anthony C Ferrante
Written by Thunder Levin
Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, David Hasselhoff, Gary Busey, Ryan Newman, Masiela Lusha, Cody Linley, Imani Hakim
SyFy | Asylum Productions
Release Date: Wednesday, July 31, 2016, 8:00pm ET

The Syfy channel has lived on the back of its campy and so-bad-they’re-good CG-shark fests for years. In 2009, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus debuted. A year later, they started splicing sea creatures together with the Roger Corman-produced Sharktopus. But nothing captured the cultural zeitgeist like 2013’s Sharknado. Celebrities began tweeting about it, and soon it was a social media sensation. It was obvious there needed to be a sequel, and in 2014 we got Sharknado 2: The Second One, followed again last year with Sharknado 3, Oh Hell No! Finally, because we the people demanded it, the franchise that merged sharks and weather phenomena continues with Sharknado: The 4th Awakens! On a sentimental note, I consider the Sharknado franchise my Geeks Of Doom anniversary as Part 2 was my first review for the site.

Five years ago, Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and his wife April (Tara Reid) rode back to Earth inside the belly of a giant shark from outer space. Their son Gil was born inside the shark. Unfortunately, their happy ending was interrupted, and it seemed like April was killed by falling space debris. At least that’s what Fin thought…

Tonight on Syfy Channel, the most anticipated event of the summer hits home… Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. When Sharknado (2013) became a pop culture phenomenon thanks to celebrities tweeting about it, director Anthony C. Ferrante knew he had something, and they quickly churned out a sequel per-summer. One of the biggest highlights of any Sharknado film, is counting all the cameos. The cross-cultural hit, the Sharknado series has had cameos from actors (A-D list), musicians and rappers, entrepreneurs, politicos, pro-wrestlers, you name it. And now… a music video.
