Tara Reid starring in an Asylum movie about a tornado filled with hungry sharks? Why am I not surprised? Read on to find out which stars of “Beverly Hills 90210” and the cult classic C.H.U.D. will be joining her when Sharknado touches down later this year.
Written by Thunder Levin (American Warships, AE Apocalypse Earth) and helmed by Anthony C. Ferrante, director of The Asylum’s “pretty damned good horror movie” Hansel & Gretel, “The Jaws After Tomorrow,” aka Sharknado, sees Los Angeles devastated by a monster hurricane that leaves the streets flooded with shark-infested waters leading to the inevitable moment when a tornado sucks up the sharks, producing the world’s first man-eating F5 tornado.
Tara Reid of American Pie, The Big Lebowski, and considerable tabloid fame (at least until Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes stole all the headlines) leads the charge against this unholy predatory twister threatening the City of Angels. No word on what her role will be. As someone who has seen her unlikely turn as an anthropologist in Alone in the Dark, please let her be playing a scientist again. Please. Please. Please.
Joining her will be original “Beverly Hills 90210” beefcake turned recent Chippendale dancer Ian Ziering as well as the great character actor John Heard, the star of C.H.U.D., one of my all-time favorite b-movies.
John Heard once hunted Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers, now the Sharknado hunts him. Circle of life.
Sharknado promises to be a sharktacular disaster epic for the ages. No word yet as to when exactly we can expect this perfect eating machine storm to make landfall on TV or DVD, but you better believe I’ll keep you posted.
