    I can't be the only person who Tivo'd this masterpiece on SyFy. I'll probably watch it on Saturday when I can fully appreciate its greatness. If it's anything like Sharktopus or Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus it'll be soooo bad it's bad, but fun.

    I don't know about this, but as I was up all night due to thunderstorms in VA I watched a bit of the end of some SyFy movie about a two headed shark. It was bad. Very bad. And not in an enjoyable way either.

    I watched it live. It was horrible and great all at the same time. It blew up on Twitter. Everyone was watching it and making fun of it MST3K style. It was like Rocky Horror Picture Show, the movie itself is bad, but the shared experience was awesome.

    My wife and kiddo saw the ad for this and they both laughed and said, "That's just a fake movie ad right??!!".

    I had to break the news to them that it was indeed real. :)

    Syfy admits those movies are bad but fun. I should have watched it to see how they combine an animal with weather

    Never heard or knew anything about this movie until I checked Twitter last night and saw the awesomeness of the Twiiterverse.
    Now, I wish I watched it to join in on the fun.

    Good think I DVRd it at 1 am. Amazingly there seem to be no reruns scheduled at this time.

    Based on all the pub it's been getting I bet we get "Sharknado II: The Revenge" within a year. Or "Sharksquito"

    Looks like SyFy is rerunning it next Thursday (7/18). I usually try to watch all of these, but missed out last night.

    I suspect they can have it out in a couple of weeks.

    I'm surprised people picked up specifically on this one, they have a new one of these every week I think. Sharktopus was one of my favorites.

    We need a Fin action figure doll.

    I knew this movie would be fun when I saw it was produced by The Asylum, the worldwide leader of the "mockbuster" movie. Here's a list of blockbuster movies they've made spoofs of:

    Looks like they released Atlantic Rim straight to dvd before Pacific Rim came out.
