Review Sharknado (2013)


Shark Week: Day 7

Sharknado

Here we fucking go! The title that launched a 100 low budget trash quality ripoffs. I have done no research but am 100% certain this film got picked up based on the name alone.  Listen, Syfy knew exactly what they were doing when they released this film but I've always been skeptical about films that are purposefully bad. Can you set out to make a cult film?

Well, no. Movies that are so bad they are good have to honestly think they are good first but Sharknado does manage to scratch the bare minimum itch of entertainment along with hella camp.  Out of all the trash films I watched at least this one actually has things happen in it.  There are sharks. There are tornadoes. There are z-list celebrities (oh John Heard what happened to you?). There are chainsaws. There are bombs. Good enough for me.

By no means a good movie but by all means a fun movie to put on with a handful of friends and a couple of beers.  It's dumb as fuck but unlike a lot of the shit I watched it at least doesn't break my number 1 rule of don't be boring.  This is pretty much the gold standard of Syfy Original films.  If you're into these "kitschy" style films they make then honestly this is probably the best from the once reputable home of Battlestar Galactica.

I still prefer films that are sincere in their quest for cinematic glory like The Room or Birdemic but this film has a dude with a chainsaw who gets swallowed by a shark and then cuts himself out of it's belly and pulls out a woman who was swallowed earlier and they all live so I mean come on... that's kinda cool.

Available on Amazon Prime.  I hope y'all had a wonderful Shark Week!
