Sharknado is coming to a theater near you. Seriously.

Jul. 26, 2013by:

I got caught up in the SHARKNADO insanity as much as anyone because it was fun and free. Anyone with basic cable was able to tune into the abysmally bad Asylum schlock movie starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, and John Heard. Hell, SyFy got such a social media boost that they greenlit SHARKNADO 2. But, now Regal Cinemas is taking it too far.

They are bringing SHARKNADO to the big screen. On August 2nd, you will be able to fork over $12.50 for a midnight screening of the movie at 200 Regal locations across America. The goal is to create a communal viewing experience similar to another cheezy movie.

“You know how audiences have had fun with Rocky Horror Picture Show over the years. If the internet reactions to this film are any indication, then our moviegoers are primed and ready to enjoy Sharknado larger than life in cinemas,” Chris Sylvia, director of digital marketing for Regal Entertainment Group, said in a statement. “Regal is proud to be giving our guests this chance to fuel the social media whirlwind by inviting friends to come to the show and tweeting reactions.”

While ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is a midnight movie staple, that film is intentionally over the top and pays homage to unintentionally bad movies from the 1950s and 1960s.  SHARKNADO is just bad.  There are so many other movies that are over the top fun that you could spend your money on this Summer (PACIFIC RIM, anyone?) rather than feed more money into The Asylum.  SHARKNADO can get fifty sequels and I will check them out as long as they air on TV.  I would probably not even fork over a dollar at a Redbox to see this.

Extra Tidbit: SHARKNADO is currently 89% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

Noooooo!

Please lets not start accepting terrible movies as the norm. I saw this last night and it was not even good for syfi and thats saying alot. I would be pissed if I had to pay for this crap. It is not even in the so bad its good category its in the I can barely watch this drivel category. I think their problem is they attempted to make it real and plausible, and actually be dramatic and that just will never work. If you have any desire whatsoever to see this at a midnight show, make sure to take

Are you kidding?

Since I've heard there was a movie called Sharknado, I've avoid it like an Amish avoids technology.
Thank you for showing me this clip and make this feeling even stronger.

"SHARKNADO is currently 89% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes"

Another proof why that website has no real value.

You know, as a horrible horrible social experiment, some bored rich guy should give the Asylum a $200 million dollar budget and see what they come up with.

Resist!!!!! Up-converting it to a chick blowing you while you watch is still not worth it.

This was fun to make fun of on Twitter and Facebook, but I would not consider it a good time to spend my Friday night watching this just to make fun of it with a bunch of weirdos in a theater that I dont know.

Riiiiiiight.

You'd have to be either brain dead or Ian Ziering's family to pay to see this in a theater.
