'Sharknado 6' Is Coming - This Time Nazis And Noah's Ark Are Involved

'Sharknado 6' Is Coming - This Time Nazis And Noah's Ark Are Involved

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the cinema... there's going to be another Sharknado movie, which is great news for fans of beyond-ludicrous B-movies.

Stop for a moment and try and remember what number they're up to. It's less than The Fast and the Furious, Police Academy and The Land Before Time, but more than Pirates of the Caribbean, Jason Bourne and Indiana Jones. That's right, film fans, a sixth Sharknado is upon us.

Now, if you were thinking if the 'sharks in a tornado' idea was wearing a little thin, you'd be wrong.

If there's one thing we've learned about films that are best viewed in someone else's flat, hungover and surrounded by cans and fag ends, it's that entertainment works on a different level to the cold light of day. Which is presumably why these movies are all about thrills, spills and leaving realism as an afterthought.

Syfy, the network that foists Sharks into tornados so we don't have to, is clearly doing well from the formula and shows no sign of giving it a rest. They made the first in 2013, and have knocked out 4 sequels since.

They've included puns almost as bad as the films themselves: 'Global Swarming' and 'The 4th Awakens' being just two of the more acceptable efforts. The latest lacks an adequate contribution from Yer Da the Copywriter, but doubtless it will follow.

Me, I'd go for Sharknado 6: Jumping the Shark.
