The most wonderful time of the summer is upon us; it’s Sharknado Time! Back in 2013, the Asylum produced the first Sharknado and it “stormed” social media and became an overnight sensation. Here we are, 4 films later ready for the fifth installment of the franchise that helped resurrect the careers of Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. These films are very dear to me, as this marks my 4-year anniversary writing and reviewing for Geeks of Doom. The Sharknado franchise checks all the boxes: sharks, disaster movies, celebrity cameos, hilariously awful special effects”¦ in other words, it’s event TV. This time, the ‘nado has gone global!
Let’s be real, reviewing Sharknado 5: Global Swarming in the same way you review other films or television series it just pointless. You knew years ago from the title alone if these movies were for you. This is now an annual American event, like Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. Fans gather to watch the ridiculousness, laugh at the cameos, and see what crazy stuff the creators come up with next.
Big Ben! The Great Wall of China! The Sphinx! Nowhere on Earth is safe from flying monster sharks. “You see where this is going… right?” That’s all you get in this 20-second teaser for the fifth, yes, fifth installment of the Syfy channel series from B-movie mega producer, The Asylum. Sharknado 5 will span the globe as the shark-fueled natural disasters follow our main characters to various locations hosting climate change summits. Hence, the topical subtitle, “Global Swarming.”
