Oh – and let’s not forget about Night Of The Lepus too.
Both came out in 1972. One about man-eating frogs. The other about giant killer rabbits. My point? Don’t really have one other than the fact that ridiculous horror movies have been around way before Sharknado and Megapython vs. Gatoroid. Time to get off SyFy Channel’s nuts I guess is the point that I am trying to make. I love shark infused tornadoes as much as the next bad movie lover, but would it kill SyFy to make a movie that doesn’t require CGI that can be done on my Macbook? Don’t worry SyFy, I’ll still ride with you. I can only hope that Bronson Pinchot from Perfect Strangers is on your short list of has-been actors who can star in your next movie about a thunderstorm that rains down man-eating cats. Hopefully it would be called……..wait for it……..Thundercats.
Oh Asylum – you really do love giving us ridiculous rip-off movies and also movies about poorly CGI’d mega piranhas. Yes, over at the American Film Market in Santa Monica this week, a poster was unveiled for The Asylum’s new “mockbuster” movie….and that movie is none other than Sharknado! The company that has blessed us with such gems as: Snakes On A Train, Transmorphers, Mega Shark Vs. Crocosaurus, and Paranormal Entity 3: The Exorcist Tapes, is about to unleash our worst fear upon us. A tornado made entirely of sharks. Hey, it could happen people. Mother Nature is a mad scientist.
Oh crap! From the poster it looks like they’re gonna take out the Santa Monica Pier! Too close for comfort for me…..So how do these sharks morph into a tornado? Glad you asked. According to The Asylum: When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace. And when the high-speed winds form tornadoes in the desert, nature’s deadliest killer rules water, land, and air! Great…..so we have to deal with land sharks too? I think we all know how this will turn out.
