Figured I would start this years 31 days of Horror off with what has become one of my favorite horror franchises. Starting 3 summers ago Syfy aired the original Sharknado. And it was such a hit now each July we get a new one.
We start the film with Finn in DC accepting an award from the President. His wife April is in Florida with their daughter. Of course another Sharknado hits. The first one hits DC while Finn is there. And after he helps save the President,he finds out there are more Sharknados. And one is heading right for where his now pregnant wife and teenage daughter are.
Finn heads down to Florida and on his way ends up running into Nova. Who was in the first film. Seems she now travels around North America fighting Sharknados.
After getting to Florida and saving his wife and daughter. Nova and Finn figure out a way to stop the multiple Sharknados that are heading towards the east coast. To do this they need to go up into space. So it is handy that Finn's father is an astronaut.
So we got Finn,his pregnant wife and his astronaut father going up in a space shuttle. But of course just cause they are in space doesn't mean they are safe from the Sharknados.
Sure the films are cheesy. And with each film they become more self aware. But they remind me so much of the cheesy creature features Roger Corman made back in the day. The films I would see at the drive in and then later on airing late at night on the weekends. And all the various cameos of various celebrities just adds to the fun of these films.
Sharknado 3 Oh Hell No gets a B+
