If you went on the internet or social media Thursday night, there’s a good chance you heard about it — “Sharknado.”

The Syfy Network movie, starring Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, is exactly what it sounds like — a movie about killer sharks raining down on Los Angeles out of tornadoes.

The movie debuted Thursday night and it immediately became a trending topic on Twitter.

Twitter said it generated tweets about a quarter of Super-Bowl levels. That’s impressive for a cheesy, cable movie.

Entertainment Weekly called it “another Syfy flick gone horribly right.”

The New York Daily News said it was “wonderfully bad.”
