Reception of Sharknado

Sharknado is a disaster film made in 2013 directed by Anthony Ferrante who is known for makeup effects. It is about a hurricane that threw sharks out of the ocean and deposited them in Los Angeles. It was performed by Cassie Scerbo, Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, and John Heard on the SyFy channel on July 11, 2013. The hurricane had made human eat sharks. This film is a B-movies commissioned by SyFy. After its performance, it got many reflections and discussion from people who had watched it or heard about it.
Most people felt it was really silly. Actress Tara Reid said that there was only a certain amount of difficulties you could go into.
   The premiere of the movie was watched by 1.37 million viewers and it is below the average 1.50 million watchers who watch a SyFy film. Mary McNamara, writer of the Los Angeles Times said that the plot holes are the: "whole points of movies like this" and they are "fabulous in-home commentary. Often accompanied by the consumption of many alcoholic beverages."
National Weather Service representative talked about the film jokingly: "As with any waterspout or tornado, the best advice is to be in an interior part of the lowest floor of a sturdy building—and not outside, whether sharks are raining down or not."
    The film may be not a successful one for there are so many people judged it as a absurd one.
