Combining Sharknado, Sharknado 2: The Second One, and Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! – Sharknado: The Collection is a 3-disc boxset filled with shark-infested splatter-fest action! With the set due for release on May 2nd, here’s our review of all three Sharknado movies…

Sharknado

Stars: Ian Ziering, Jaason Simmons, Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo, John Heard, Alex Arleo, Neil H. Berkow, Heather Jocelyn Blair | Written by Thunder Levin | Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante

When a freak tornado swamps Los Angeles, thousands of man-eating sharks are sucked into the swirling vortex, terrorizing the waterlogged populace and flooding the city with shark-infested seawater. Surfer and bar-owner Fin (Ziering) sets out with his friends Baz (Simmons) and Nova (Scerbo) to rescue his estranged wife April (Reid) and teenage daughter Claudia from the sharks raining down from the skies. With nature’s deadliest killer ruling sea, land, and air, they soon realise that

’3-Headed Shark Attack’ Review

Stars: Karrueche Tran, Jason Simmons, Rob Van Dam, Danny Trejo, Jena Sims, Brad Mills, Scott Thomas Reynolds | Written by Jacob Cooney, Bill Hanstock | Directed by Christopher Olen Ray

It seems oh-so-obvious, but would you believe me if I told you that 3-Headed Shark Attack is a sequel to the 2012 film 2-Headed Shark Attack? Well it is. And both films come from Christopher Olen Ray, son of legendary (well at least in my house) B-movie director Fred Olen Ray, and director of the fantastic, and criminally over-looked, action flick Mercenaries. Ray is also one of the best director that purveyors of Syfy channel shlock, The Asylum, currently have on their roster.

Of course your enjoyment of this film depends entirely on whether or not you’re a fan of the un-ironically bad films that The Asylum – and the Syfy channel – have made their stock and trade. For me their films are

Exclusive: Director Anthony C. Ferrante Talks Sharknado 2 and More!

Get ready, kids! The "Sumnado of Sharknado" (as Syfy likes to call it) is officially upon us, and right now we have a quick Q&A with Sharknado 2: The Second One director Anthony C. Ferrante to help chum the waters of your anticipation.

Dread Central: Now, over half a year removed from the surprise pop culture quake Sharknado set off, what do you look back upon as being the best/worst aspects of it and the most surprising things to come out of it?

Anthony C. Ferrante: I’m still surprised that mainstream American embraced it. I remember watching the finished movie about three weeks before it aired. The movie is practically wall-to-wall VFX so this was the first time we saw everything completely together without missing slugs. <?i>

There were about three of us in the editing bay, and we were laughing with it and making fun of it.

Unofficial Baywatch movie incoming, can't mention Baywatch

This might just be the most wonderfully sounding bonkers on the horizon: an unofficial Baywatch film, with quite a plot...

News

It's little secret that plans have been in place for some time to bring Baywatch to the big screen. And yet, try as they might, those attempting to get the film made haven't yet got that elusive green light.

Perhaps then they should take a leaf out of the book of Chris Cottom. He's the director of an unofficial Baywatch spin-off film that's heading to our screens. It's called The B-Team, because its makers haven't got the rights to use the Baywatch name, but it does feature some of the original actors from the TV show. Specifically, Jaason Simmons, Alexandra Paul and Jeremy Jackson. There's no confirmation either way on the involvement of David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. Let's call them both long shots for now.

In The B-Team,

John Cleese joins Mmg's B Team

John Cleese joins Mmg's B Team
Exclusive: Producer and former Baywatch star Alexandra Paul and Meyers Media Group (Mmg) have announced the casting on the spoof spy in the run-up to Cannes.

Mmg represents world rights to The B Team and makes its production debut. The company is working with Joseph Cohen of American Entertainment to arrange financing.

UK filmmaker Chris Cottam will direct the fictitious romp about TV actors from a cancelled show who reunite to take down an arch-criminal.

Years after the show was used by the CIA to gather intelligence during promotional tours at the end of the Cold War, the Agency is blackmailed by a villain and discovers he loved the old show.

The Agency summons the actors to get close to the evil-doer and take him down. The conceit of the film, styled in the vein of Austin Powers and Johnny English, is that the show was Baywatch. The B Team will feature original cast members playing their real-life

John Cleese Joins The B Team
If the idea of actors from a cheesy but beloved TV series pressed into service against a new, real-world threat has you thinking Galaxy Quest, you'e not alone. But The B-Team, which has just announced John Cleese as its villain, plans a different take on the idea.Baywatch veterans Alexandra Paul and Jaason Simmons came up with the idea that their cheesecake and surf melodrama stomping grounds were also used as a cover by the CIA to gather intelligence while the cast were out on international promotional tours at the tail end of the Cold War. When a new villain (Vachon, to be played by Cleese) blackmails the agency and they learn he’s a diehard Baywatcher, the actors are summoned back into action to take him down. Prospects for a Hoff cameo? Not given in Screen International's report, but we give it 30% Hoffness at this moment.Michael Brody turned

DVD Review: 'Sharknado'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ Every wondered what would happen should a tornado whip up a frenzy of sharks from the ocean and deposit them onto an unsuspecting American public? Well have no fear, as purveyors of Dtv schlock The Asylum have stepped up to answer that question in their imaginatively titled Syfy Channel feature, Sharknado (2013). Swimming with ropey special effects, groan-inducing dialogue and a narrative so ridiculous it makes the title seem run-of-the-mill, it's fun. "We shouldn't be afraid of the sharks. They're the ones that should be afraid of us," claims a snarling sea captain in the film's nefarious shark fishing opening.

The captain, of course, soon meets a grisly end courtesy of hundreds of razor sharp teeth and the action jumps to Los Angeles and an aptly-monickered protagonist, Fin (Ian Ziering); pro surfer and waterfront barman. When the storm, and a wave of black-eyed predators, hits the coast, Fin and a band
