Sharknado 5 Global Swarming

SyFy | Asylum Productions

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: 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

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…

If it’s July… it must be SHARKNADO time! This weekend, the greatest movie franchise in television history continues with Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, premiering tonight on Syfy.

The Syfy network is filling up its time slots with all their “classic” original shark films, my favorite titles include “Zombie Shark,” “Planet of the Sharks,” and “Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf.” Before unleashing the fourth and most devastating Sharknado onto the viewers, the entire gang headed to San Diego Comic Con last weekend.

Check out the full panel below.

Sharknado 4th Awakens Header

After destroying Los Angeles, New York, and Disney, the Sharknado, (maybe the biggest sinful pleasure in TV history), finally heads to Sin City. Later this month on SyFy, the fourth entry into the franchise heads to Las Vegas, Nevada where once again, Finn Shepard must save the world, or in this case, D-List celebrities from an array of flying sharks. Set to appear along star Ian Ziering are a who’s who of celebs including Carrot Top, Vince Neil of Motley Crue, outspoken right wing actress Stacey Dash, and of course, Vegas legend Wayne Newton.

Watch the preview videos below.
