Best ‘Sharknado’ sequel titles from Twitter
“Sharknado” looks more like a “Snarknado.”
Syfy’s so-bad-it’s-great B-movie, starring Tara Reid, generated a whirlwind of response from Twitter on Thursday night.
Perhaps recognizing Syfy puts out goofy movies like this all the time -- 2010’s “Sharktopus” comes to mind -- many clamored for a sequel. Some tweeters proposed possible titles.
Right now, I’m hoping for a producer’s credit for “Avalanchovies.” Or “Shrewnami.”
Here are some favorites:
- “Shih Tzunami” -- @annielowrey
- “Lizard Blizzard” -- @TheTweetOfGod
- “Hurricats” -- @goingforgoofy
- “Squidquake” -- @brayingdixon
- “Velocirapture” -- @JasonAbbruzzese
- “Sharknobyl” -- @swin24
We’ve got a few more Hollywood-ready ideas here.
“Sharknado” racked up about 387,000 tweets, according to a spokesman for Syfy, and at its peak boasted 5,000 tweets a minute (which didn’t exactly translate into stellar ratings).
Syfy is planning to have an encore broadcast next week.
