Similar to the dramatic minimalism of Richard Linklater’s acclaimed Before trilogy, the Sharknado series seems to have brilliantly, yet subtly, evolved the narrative in its latest outing, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! Like cinematic pioneers before him—Kurosawa, Fellini, and Kubrick come to mind—director Anthony C. Ferrante has developed his characters with painstakingly detailed authenticity.
NO, THAT IS OBVIOUSLY A LIE. IT’S A DISASTER MOVIE ABOUT TORNADOES MADE OF SHARKS. YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS BY NOW.
But like Indiana Jones, the third installment might turn out to be the best one. The trailer for Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! promises more sharks, more cameos, and even more sharks.
The Citizen Kane of whatever this genre counts as premieres July 22nd on SyFy.
