Waterspouts. Killer sharks. Romance. Sharknado is the social media sensation of 2013 catapulting the film to cult status. Causing a ‘tweetnado’ of reactions when it first screened generating 5000 tweets per minute when it premiered, this shameless B-movie shows ratings are important, but so are the other metrics. Commissioned by Syfy, written by Thunder Levin, starring Tara Reid and hellbent on taking global warming t oits logical extreme; leave your common sense at home and prepare yourself for a B-movie so ridiculous that it not only turned a profit, but spawned a sequel!
