On July 11, SyFy channel aired “Sharknado.” It’s about a freak hurricane hitting Los Angeles, causing sharks to be caught in tornadoes that rampage through the city and flood it with shark-infested seawater.
The movie stars Tara Reid, famous for the “American Pie” movies, and Ian Ziering of “Beverly Hills 90210,” who fends off the human-chomping sharks with all kinds of tools.
Though it only drew about 1.37 million viewers, according to the Associated Press, it became a Twitter sensation, generating nearly 5,000 tweets a minute at the peak.
The network says a sequel is in the works, with the same mayhem but in a new location: New York City.
I haven’t seen “Sharknado,” and I probably won’t, but there’s been a lot of buzz about other possible ecological disaster parodies. Titles like “Sharkcano,” “Tsharknami” and “Sharkicane” have been thrown out there, keeping with the shark theme.
I’d like to add:
What ideas do you have? Send me an email or tweet me @honestten with the hashtag #SNparody.
Syfy is also holding a Twitter contest for fans to give the New York “Sharknado” a proper subtitle. You can tweet your suggestions to @syfymovies with the hashtag #sharknado.
