Writer/director Lou Simon has made quite a name for herself in the horror community within what is, at least in cinematic terms, a very short space of time. Her 2012 feature HazMat sold in record time and her last film, Agoraphobia – starring horror icon Tony Todd and Sharknado’s Cassie Scerbo – recieved decent (if mixed) reviews. Not one to rest of her laurels, Simon returns to the genre, not only writing and directing but also producing survival horror All Girls Weekend.

Ian Ziering was back as chainsaw-touting Fin Shepard, alongside Tara Reid and David Hasselhoff. With a new team of allies by their side, they battled the Sharknados - which this time have evolved into fire-breathing, hail-throwing, sand-blasting threats. They also spewed their fair share of Star Wars puns, including a "May »

“Sharknado” Cassie Scerbo gets the best/worst line of the first movie, and delivers it with the appropriate amount of overwrought emotion: “They took my grandfather, so I really hate sharks.” At the movie’s climax, Scerbo falls out of a helicopter while fighting off a shark — into the mouth of a different shark. Not to worry: Scerbo is rescued from the shark’s belly when Ziering dives chainsaw-first into its mouth and cuts them both out. “Sharknado 2: The Second One” In a nod to the first movie, Ziering cuts a shark in half with his chainsaw, in slow motion, »
