The Summer of the Shark continues! Weeks after Discovery Channel finished up another thrilling Shark Week, and days after World Champion surfer Mitch Fanning got attacked by a Great White ON CAMERA, it’s finally time to culminate the greatest trilogy ever… that’s right… it’s SHARKNADO TIME!!! In preparation for Wednesday night’s debut of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No, Syfy is running the gamut of its giant, mutant, sea creature movies in marathon form. Titles such as Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf, Zombie Shark, 3-Headed Shark Attack, and Mega Shark Vs Kolossus will help you beat the summer heat on the couch. Just grab some friends and lotsa beer.
In case you forgot how everything got started, watch the helpful videos below.
The videos give you 4-minute summaries of the first two films. In the first one, we see how the Sharknado started in LA in 2013, and Finn (Ian Ziering) was put in the awkward position of taking his hot bartender friend with him to save his ex-wife (Tara Reid) and kids. We all get to relive a contender for greatest moment in movie history as Finn dives chainsaw first into a flying Great White’s mouth!
In “The Second One,” we get to revisit the classic moments from 2014’s sequel including cameos from Billy Ray Cyrus and Judd Hirsch, as well as Finn getting a bigger chainsaw, and making one of the most epic speeches this side of Bill Pullman in Independence Day. Oh… and Tara Reid channels her inner Ash from Evil Dead with a modified saw hand.
But if these two videos aren’t enough, fear not! Syfy is playing Sharknado and Sharknado 2 starting at 5:00pm ET on Wednesday night, leading up to the premiere of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No at 9. Sharknado 3 is again written by Thunder Levin, and directed by Anthony C. Ferrante and will feature too many cameos to list here, including Mark Cuban (as the POTUS), Chris Jericho, Jerry Springer and David Hasselhoff.
