What's Sharknado? Recently taking Syfy audiences by storm and getting so much press, they actually screened it in theaters, Sharknado stars Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, the fivehead who once got fourth billing on Beverly Hills, 90210, as victims of the worst weather front of all time, a tornado that's full of sharks. Don't you dare ask for a better or more logical explanation.
What's Sharktopus? Julia Roberts' villainous brother has genetically engineered a cross-bred octopus and shark because of course he did. Of course he did! The result is a shark with tentacles and, for some reason, spikes. Also endless awesomeness.

"I once tried topus when I was a kid. Never again!"
Sharktopusnado: Twin evil scientists working in a sleepy beach town in Florida have decided that mankind sucks so much sack, it's time for them to die. However, sibling rivalry compels them to out-villain one another. While one brother develops a strain of mutant shark/octopus half-breeds, the other works on a terrible weather-controlling device. But when their bumbling assistant Igor gets drunk and brings a hooker back to the lab, shit gets real!
Drunken Igor knocks the weather-controlling device into the tank full of sharktopi. The sharktopi's genetically enhanced intellect merges with the technology and they become one. A furious storm erupts, destroying the lab and carrying the sharktopi in a twister out to sea where they gain in strength and maybe kill a boat full of super hot bikini girls. Oh no! Bikini girls!
