What's worse than a tornado? A tornado full of sharks! Syfy will deliver such a scenario to viewers tonight with their latest original movie Sharknado. If the shark tornado isn't enough to sell you, how about Steve Sanders Ian Ziering and Tara Reid? Both star in this unlikely story that sounds like it should appeal to those who've appreciated such TV movies as Piranhaconda, Arachnoquake and the memorable Sharktopus. The trailer above gives us an eyeful of the terror that awaits.

Produced by The Asylum, Sharknado stars Ziering as Fin, a beachside bar regular who teams up with bartender Nova (Casie Scerbo) and the local drunk George (John Heard), along with Fin's ex-wife April (Tara Reid) to investigate the ecological nightmare that has sharks swimming through the streets of Los Angeles and falling out of the sky. It sounds preposterous, but it looks like a blood-soaked alternative to just about anything else on TV tonight. Unless there's another TV movie or series merging vicious sea creatures and natural disasters airing tonight that we aren't aware of, in which case, you have your pick.


Combining Beverly Hills, 90210's Ziering, Home Alone's John Heard and Tara Reid seems like a recipe for something magical. And at the very least, it'll be raining sharks and nightmares.

The trailer promises storms, jaws and chaos. And the photos in the gallery below offer an eyeful of the kind of carnage these sharks are bringing to those who are unfortunate enough to find themselves in their wake. The teaser below also teases a battle between helicopters and sharks. Because that's the kind of thing that can happen during a sharknado.

Sharknado airs Thursday, July 11 at 9:00 p.m. ET on Syfy.
