Board Up Your TV! The Sharknado Hits This Friday
By: Craig Villinger on July 22, 2013 | Comments

The weekend forecast warns of strong winds, and a one hundred percent chance of sharks!

Whether you're the type of person who spends their day browsing cult movie websites or hiding under a rock, chances are you've heard about Sharknado. You know the one. Tara Reid. That guy from Beverly Hills 90210. Oh, and Sharks. In a tornado!

Sharknado was originally due to blow across Australian screens in September, but with local interest as high as it will ever be thanks to a largely unexpected social media storm the Universal Channel has wisely decided to bring forward its screening date, and Sharknado will now make its subscription TV premiere on Friday July 26th at 8.30pm.

In Sharknado, a freak hurricane hits Los Angeles, lifting thousands of man-eating sharks from the water and dumping them on the local population. A beachside bar owner (Ian Ziering of Beverly Hills 90210 infamy) and a local drunk must team up someone played by Tara Reid to investigate, and presumably put a stop to, these sharky hijinks.

For those unfortunate enough (or lucky enough, as the case may be) to miss the Sharknado premiere, encore screenings will follow on Saturday July 27th at 10.30am, Monday September 9th at 8.30pm and Tuesday September 10th at 12.15pm.
