‘Sharknado’ Takes TV and Internet by Storm
**WARNING: Some viewers may find this trailer graphic**
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.”
