If you missed Syfy's original movie Sharknado when it aired earlier this month, you missed the best bad movie since The Rocky Horror Picture Show or Death Race 2000. Don't despair though, now you'll have another chance when the goddawful flick touches down in a theater near you.
With so many comparisons to the joyful terribleness of Rocky Horror, one could only expect that a film as truly terrible as Sharknado would soon have midnight showings featuring, uh, people dressed as characters from the film (or sharks, I suppose).
Last weekend Jerame and I had managing editor John Becker and his husband, Michael, over for dinner and a movie. John, a tornado and shark buff, was so excited to see two of his favorite things combined, the enthusiasm was infectious. Sadly, there isn't a DC showing; I'd love to see John dressed as Big Boobs and stabbing fake sharks with a pool cue.
See if it's showing in your city. If you haven't seen it yet, haul your butt down and live the excitement and drama and bad dialogue like "I am not a stripper" and "That's why I hate sharks."
Better get your tickets soon. It's one night only.
There's a preview of the show after the break. That last link is the two minute "Worst Of."
