What I like about Sharknado, is that it knows what it is. It doesn’t pretend to be some high-production piece of art. It knows that it is ridiculous, and it gives fans of the series what they’ve come to expect. I have seen a lot of SyFy movies in my day, and not all of them are that self-aware. Some of them think they are legitimately good movies, which makes them even worse to those of us that are watching. Sharknado takes itself as lightly as possible, and the sequel did so as well. Cinedigm has announced the Blu-ray (And DVD) release of the second film. You can pre-order the disc now, and expect delivery on the 7th of October.

SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE
Exclusive Extended Version Of Syfy’s Smash Hit Creature/Disaster Mashup
Is Out For Blood On Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD October 7
Including Exclusive Special Features
Syfy’s ratings record-breaker turned pop culture phenomenon continues with the epic adventure, Sharknado 2: The Second One, hitting shores as a never-before-aired extended version on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD October 7 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and The Asylum.
In this new Shark-tastic adventure, stars Ian Ziering (“Beverly Hills, 90210”) and Tara Reid (American Pie) reprise their roles from the original, now iconic disaster film Sharknado. Joining the cast is Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill, Volume 1), platinum recording artist Mark McGrath, comedian Judah Friedlander (“30 Rock”) and a huge collection of celebrities making must-see cameo appearances, including Kelly Osbourne, Perez Hilton, Billy Ray Cyrus, Al Roker, Matt Lauer, Andy Dick and more!
Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante (Sharknado), the terrifying and hilarious sequel to Syfy’s smash hit film once again matches heroes against sharks who are swept up into deadly storms to form lethal “Sharknadoes.” This time, terror hits the Big Apple and no one is safe!
When a Category 7 hurricane pummels New York, the surging floodwaters bring thousands of sharks. To make matters worse, tornadoes soon dot the horizon. As Sharknadoes tear through the city, no vehicle, building, or national monument is safe.
