Guilty Pleasure: Grade Z Movies like Sharknado 2!

23 Jul



I’ve always loved low-budget, grade Z movies, especially horror and science fiction. SyFy Channel has created a cult following for their Saturday night schedule. They started showing then producing intentionally bad, crazy, tongue-in-cheek movies. The ratings have been big for movies with the crazy titles like: Sharktopus,Piranhaconda, Mega Python vs Gatoroid, Dinocroc vs Supergator, and Bog Ass Spider! And they star people who may have forgotten about or have past cultural significance (I loved seeing Tiffany and Debbie Gibson in a movie together.) Sharknado was one of them. It was released in 2013 and started Beverly Hills 90210 alum Ian Ziering and Tara Reid.

Sharknado 2 is about a freak weather system that turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most iconic sites. What is a sharknado you ask?  It’s a tornado that has sharks in it! Yes I’m excited! It premieres Wednesday July 30th!

It stars:

  • Tara Reid as April
  • Ian Ziering as Fin
  • Vivica A. Fox as Skye
  • Kari Wuhrer as Ellen
  • Courtney Baxter as Mora
  • Kelly Osbourne as Flight Attendant
  • Judah Friedlander as Brian
  • Andy Dick as NYPD officer
  • Judd Hirsch as Ben the cab driver
  • Mark McGrath as Martin
  • Billy Ray Cyrus as TBA
  • Kurt Angle as FDNY fire chief
  • Benjy Bronk as Sam the Prophet
  • Jared Fogle as TBA
