Sharknado 5 Gets a Title, Artwork, and Plot Synopsis – But Is the Earth Ready?



Some things in life are inevitable: death, taxes, and Syfy producing Sharknado sequels until the end of time. A fifth installment is already scheduled to run rampant on Syfy and social media next summer, news that should come as a surprise to absolutely no one.

First, there was Sharknado

Then came Sharknado: The Second One

Which led to Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

And just when you thought it was over, Sharknado: The Fourth Awakens.

Now, get ready, world, because the title for the improbable fifth installment in the most unlikely of film franchises appears to be…

Sharknado 5… Earth 0

Get it? Hope so. That’s actually a more clever title than some of the previous puns. But expect ten million people to rush to social media to make the joke “Sharknado 5… Audience 0” thinking they’re first and most clever of all.

The obtuse cliffhanger ending of this past July’s Sharknado 4 saw the Eiffel Tower drop out of the sky on Niagara Falls, promising the threat that this most natural of catastrophes had finally gone global. Judging by the plot synopsis and promo artwork I stumbled upon on a film sales website, that’s exactly what we can expect from Sharknado 5… Earth 0.

With much of North America lying in ruins, the rest of the world braces for the inevitable: a global sharknado. From London to Asia, South Africa to Mexico, Fin and his family must put a stop to the sharknados once and for all.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are listed as returning – duh! I’m sure we’ll soon be hearing about the 200 C/D/Z-list celebrity cameos that will round out the cast.

One can only assume The Asylum will bring back the writing-directing duo of Anthony C. Ferrante and Thunder Levin, who have given life to every previous installment, to continue their legacy. Too late to turn back now.

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating



Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations



The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
