Sharknado (2013)

Sharknado (2013)

Country:  USA

Director: Anthony C. Ferrante

Main Stars: Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, John Heard, Cassandra Scerbo, Julie McCullogh

Storyline: Freak hurricane hits LA with some trapped sharks within the cyclone.

Review (Spoils): What happens when your film careers have hot rock bottom? You sign on with a film like this and it turns into a cult following. We have a strange hurricane that hits LA which for some unknown reason creates cyclones (wouldn’t that be a tornado?) which just happens to start in the sea and it traps a large number of sharks within it and drops them into the city randomly. The best part are the sharks do not die on impact, instead they flip and flop and bit through everything. We have a terrible storyline, horrible acting, bad CGI and some off and on blood.

What I did not know was that sharks that can eat through everything, cars, trucks, through glass and even swallow people completely. (Classic chainsaw scene in the end) This movie has it all from munching parts, fake CGI blood and sharks, lost of sharks and a crazy fake tornado (actually 3-4 of them). This movie is just horrid.

Rating: I personally love bad movies but this one might take the cake for bad. If it was not for Cassandra Scerbo all over the screen this could have been a flip it off. This film is damn bad and the CGI just makes it worse. I can see why this has a cult following and multiple sequels (which of course I will get too and watch) as it is just that bad and cheesy. The final scenes takes the bloody cake and dear god what happened to Tara Reid that alone is scarier than the sharks.

1/10 Beers!

Storyline:  A series of deaths could connected to old urban legends

MV5BMjA4NTY2NzcxMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMjg4MTIyMQ@@__V1_SY317_CR3,0,214,317_Review: A young women gets murdered by an axe swinging maniac in the backseat of a car and now a group of university students are interested. Natalie (Alicia Witt) a beautiful redhead is studying folklore with her friends and Professor Wexler (Robert Englund). The Professor brings the attention of the murder and the connection of folklore to the class. Before you know it people are being killed off one by one in the way the folklore falls, leading to once again another who done it horror film.

Another collection of Hollywood horror with beautiful red carpet teenagers and trying to figure out who is killing them all off. This film brings us axe swinging, hangings, strangling, slashed wrists, slashed ankles, some running over, the classic pop rocks and liquid draino. Sure the killer is wearing a winter coat and walking around killing people but the whole idea of who the killer is in the end is a little out of range and it isn’t possible if you think about it.

Rating: Another teenage slasher film of this era. There was not enough to hold the film together and the final is just stupid as it is not really possible. For that alone this is not a memorable one even for the era of horror that it sits in.


5/10 Beers!
