The Sharksnado Franchise is About to Get a Sixth Film
When a cyclone forms in the ocean, sharks get sucked into the storm. This phenomenon is called a Sharksnado, and it gained attention after the 2013 made-for-TV film Sharknado.
In Sharknado, sharks are sucked into the storm and dropped onto Los Angeles. They wreak havoc and kill.
A storm forms off the coast of Mexico and drives sharks north. Tornados pick up these shark-laden waterspouts, and drop them on Los Angeles.
Despite its implausible premise, sharksnado manages to be entertaining. Its mash-up of disaster and monster movies is fun to watch, and its actors deliver cringe-worthy performances.
But there are several issues with the movie. For one, sharks don’t tend to eat humans unless they are attracted to them or confused for their usual prey.
But that doesn’t mean that a tornado-filled sharknado wouldn’t kill people. Rather, it might cause people to flee for their lives as the sharks swarm them.
In the Syfy channel movie sharksnado, a hurricane drives all manner of sharks north to Los Angeles. These man-eating creatures are flung by water spouts into the city’s streets and gobbled up as hurricane waters flood the city.
As the storm reaches inland, Fin and his gang try to defeat it as if it were a living entity. They bat meteorites haphazardly into it, and later use electrified cannon balls and laser beams to blast it into dissipation.
Tornadoes have been known to pick up all kinds of heavy objects, including trains and cows. They can withstand the weight of great white sharks. They can also be subjected to pressure changes and other effects. Despite what the movies may tell us, the chances of sharks escaping a tornado and attacking humans are pretty slim.
A tornado sucks up man-eating sharks and hurls them out over Los Angeles in the first film of Syfy’s so-bad-it’s-amazing shark disaster movies. This wacky twist on a typical tornado disaster was the most popular shark movie of its summer, thanks to its defiantly over-the-top absurdity.
So far, sharknados have been triggered by a variety of factors. Mostly, though, the storms are caused by waterspouts, which are created by a hurricane or tornado and cause them to scoop up small fish.
As a result, it’s unlikely that the sharknados will be able to pick up larger animals like man-eating sharks. However, it is possible for smaller species to get sucked into the tornadoes, as happened in Marksville, Louisiana; Odzaci, Serbia; and Lajamanu, Australia. In addition, it’s not impossible that sharks could die upon falling out of a waterspout, but they aren’t likely to bite humans if they do.
A freak hurricane sucks in man-eating sharks and scoops them up into water spouts before dumping seawater all over Los Angeles. Bar-owner Fin Shepherd and his friends head to rescue April and her daughter, Claudia, after the bar is ruined in a storm.
Group Reaches April’s House
The group reaches April’s house before it is destroyed in flooding and a tornado hits the area. April’s boyfriend, Collin, is eaten by the sharks, but the rest of the group escapes unharmed.
As the sharknado spreads, Fin and his friends are able to defeat it by using various methods. They use chainsaws, shotguns, handguns, helicopters, crudely made bombs and selfless acts of brawny heroism.
The Sharksnado franchise has been a campy social-media sensation since it first debuted in 2013, but it’s about to go out with a bang. Syfy has greenlit a sixth and final film, and it will feature time travel.
According to TV Line, the finale will follow Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) as he attempts to save the world and resurrect his family. He must travel back in time to stop the first sharknado that started it all.
Along the way, he’ll battle Nazis, dinosaurs, knights and Noah’s Ark. He’ll also find his daughter Claudia, who is now a politician, and her new husband, Skye (Scott Wilson).
