A gray morning dawns over Los Angeles as our fair city’s shell-shocked citizens try to pick up the pieces left by last night’s SHARKNADO. Our collective mind has been blown, utterly. This event, and I do not say this lightly, will be forever branded on our cultural consciousness.


The Internet is littered with flotsam and jetsam left by the storm: memes, reviews, recaps, a Photoshopped image of “SharkNader,” a potential Damon Lindelof sequel…and I’m going to do my best to collect and deposit them here!


Welcome to the ULTIMATE SHARKNADO POST-GAME GUIDE, The Asylum’s omnibus of the best (and probably also worst) Sharknado reaction material. I will post more and more as the day goes on, so keep an eye on us.

      I interviewed Thunder Levin, the writer of Sharknado & the writer/director of AE: Apocolypse Earth on my podcast a few weeks ago – http://tuningintoscifitv.com/2013/05/17/saturday-b-movie-reel-111-writerdirector-thunder-levin-talks-about-ae-apocalypse-earth-and-sharknado/

      Disappointing to see an ad for Sharknado merchandise on your front page but find nothing in your store. :( Hope this is rectified!

    3. Rick Says:

      Very sad I missed this (sorry, Pacific Rim beckoned) will be catching it on the rerun.

    4. Phil Haberkorn Says:

      While watching Sharknado, I was struck by the resemblance between Cassie Scerbo and Jillian Barberie. At first, I thought it was Jillian, than I remembered the gal in the movie is a little too young to be Jillian. S’pose Jillian could play Cassie’s twin sister in Sharknado 2? OK, so Jillian’s a little older than Cassie, which is easily explained in the story line by Jillian being born first, then their Mom being placed in suspended animation until she could be cured of an incurable disease years later, and then she went back into the maternity ward……Or hey, one of the airborne sharks flew threw a time-warp, and it wasn’t really Cassie the guy carbed out of the shark in the closing sequence, it was her twin sister, so in Sharknado 2 you have to re-create the time warp to save Cassie. Oh, sorry, I bet you already have a plot for the sequel. You guys do work with plots, right?…
