You know I will be honest here and say that a lot of times the more modern A horror movies are rarely as good as the B Horror Movies that you would usually see on TV or straight to one of the other home viewing mediums… You would think it would be the other way, but honestly… It really isn’t!
Don’t get me wrong, there are some great mainstream horror movies, a great example of this is, Halloween (2007) by Rob Zombie (House Of 1,000 Corpses) and, Last House On The Left (2009) by Dennis Illiadis (Hardcore)… But as far as modern horror goes, there is just nothing like a B movie!
I mean a lot of the time mainstream Horror movies generally tend to go over the top in either gore (as is the case with: Halloween II (2007)) or are trying to hard to recreate the magic that was given to the horror movies in the 1980s, (such as, A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)) or what have you…
But it seems like B Movies do what they have always done the best… That is that they seem to go over the top at just the right moments, and in just the right ways, and I got to say that Sharknado (2013), is a modern day, B Movie Horror movie that did it so right, that the B Movie super stars of the past would surely be proud of them!
Written by: Thunder Levin (American Warships) & Directed by: Anthony C. Ferrante (Scream Of The Banshee). Starring: Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills 90210), Tara Reid (American Pie), John Heard (Big), Cassie Scerbo (Teen Spirit), Jason Simmons (Frankenstein Reborn), Chuck Hittinger (Boogeyman 2) & Aubrey Peeples (The Good Mother).
This awesome action packed thrill ride of a horror movie tells the tale of ex-pro surfer, Fin Shepard (Ziering) who is a nice enough guy, he is divorced with 2 kids, but he does also own a bar down near the beach in sunny LA, and he uses every opportunity to go out surfing with his friend… That is of course until the things that come from the ocean decide to come out of the ocean and make their way in land for a little, ‘human’ dinning…
You see there is this massive storm that is heading toward the coast, and with it is coming an army of sharks of all different varieties… And they are hungry!
So as the bar is destroyed and Fin and his friends have begun the fight for their lives, they will have to escape inland as far as they can, in an effort to not just escape from the Shark invasion, but also to rescue Fin’s family before they also become victims of the Sharknado that is headed their way!
In the end, this movie was a blast that I really enjoyed, and if you check it out, you might find the same thing as well!
