Sharknado 4Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens (2016)

 

Here we are at the fourth instalment of the absurd series. Can it become any more absurd?

Of course it can.

So Fin is in Las Vegas for a family holiday and at the same time Aston Reynolds the owner of Astro-X, a company that has developed a system that has stopped all sharknados.

Until now.

You see his system doesn’t work on shark sandnados. We have all sort of sharknados now, Bouldernados, Lavanados, Lightningnados and so on.
Also we learn the fate of Fins father and April.

As you can tell from the subtitle it is referencing Star Wars so littered throughout are quotes from the original trilogy and not the remake of the original trilogy the title is a play on words of.
Good thing too as there aren’t any memorable quotes in the remake.

Not only Star Wars is referenced or quoted but the Chainsaw shop is ran by the Sawyer family, Christine makes an appearance and has never looked better if you ask me, Wizard of Oz references along with Ghostbusters and many more.

Appearences this time round include: WWE wrestler Seth Rollins, Slipknot singer Corey Taylor, Carrot Top, Duane (“Dog”) Chapman, Wayne Newton, Gena Lee Nolin and Alexandra Paul from Baywatch reunite with The Hoff, Gilbert Gottfried, Gary Busey, Steve Guttenburg and Troma legend Lloyd Kaufman.
Also Jedward reappear.

Fucking Jedward. Are they popular in America?

So over the top and insane that if I was to point out some of the more crazy ideas used this time I would have to add spoilers. I can tell you the Chippendales take part in the fun including one who kills a shark using what I can assume is the most panty moistening of all Chippendale moves- the groin thrust.
I thought this was a step up over part 3 and IMDB agrees.
This currently has a rating of 4.9 compared to threes 4.2.
Fair scores.
There is hardly any time spent that doesn’t involve fighting the sharknados and some of the special effects are probably the best The Asylum has done. Most are of their usual crappy standard.

It does end on a cliffhanger so bring on Sharknado 5.
