The 4th Awakens And Cameos Are Everywhere In This Pair Of Teaser Clips For Sharknado 4

Summer is upon us and that can only mean one thing.  Another chapter in the Sharknado franchise.  The only looked more too than the ridiculous special effects and story line is the cameos.  Seems that any one who is any one wants to have their 10 seconds of glory in the franchise.  Even some bodies who are nobodies.

You’ll see what I mean.

From the Press Release:

“SHARKNADO: THE 4th AWAKENS takes place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer’s SHARKNADO 3: OH HELL NO!. Fin (Ziering), his family, and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks – and ‘nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) least expected.

Tara Reid is also set to return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign. David Hasselhoff (as Gil Shepard) and Ryan Newman (as Claudia Shepard) will also reprise their SHARKNADO 3 roles. New additions to the SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS cast include Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha, and Cheryl Tiegs.

SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS is a production of The Asylum. Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct an original screenplay written by Thunder Levin.”

Cameo-wise – here’s a list to gawk at:

  • Cynthia Bailey (“The Real Housewives of Atlanta”)
  • Robert Herjavec (“Shark Tank”)
  • Kym Johnson (“Dancing with the Stars”)
  • Carrie Keagan (TV host)
  • T’Keyah Crystal Keymah (“In Living Color”)
  • “Baywatch” stars Gena Lee Nolin and Alexandra Paul as Astro-X rocket scientists and astrophysicists
  • Benjy Bronk (“The Howard Stern Show”) as a morning show host
  • Duane Chapman (“Dog the Bounty Hunter”) as a chainsaw dealer
  • Stacey Dash (actress and pundit) as the Mayor of Chicago
  • Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts) as manager of the Shark World hotel
  • David Faustino (“Married with Children”) as a Las Vegas gambler
  • Lori Greiner (“Shark Tank”) as a home shopping guru
  • Frank Mir (MMA fighter) as head of security for the Shark World hotel
  • Vince Neil (Motley Crue); Wayne Newton (aka Mr. Las Vegas); and Todd, Savannah, and Grayson Chrisley (“Chrisley Knows Best”) as themselves
  • Dr. Drew Pinsky (“Loveline”) as a pastor
  • Patti Stanger (“Millionaire Matchmaker”) as a reporter
  • Corey Taylor (Slipknot) as a Shark World hotel security guard

Here’s a video that highlights a handful of the cameos:

And here’s another that highlights the riveting story-line:

Even got some kick ass artwork!  Did I mention the air date?  In case I didn’t or you’ve forgotten already – Sharknado 4 airs on SYFY Channel on Sunday July 31st.

Things Get Sticky In This Look At ‘BITE’

Scream Factory can always be counted on to throw some hard core horror at us and this time around they will be bringing us Chad Archibald’s latest.  You should remember Mr. Archibald from The Drownsman but this time around he moves away from the slasher end of things and takes a trip down the body horror aisle.

BITE will be hitting VOD and On Demand platforms on May 6th.  A small theatrical release also occurs that same day.  Elma Begovic, Annette Wozniak, Denise Yuen, Jordan Gray, Lawrene Denkers, Barry Birnberg, Daniel Klimitz, Tianna Nori, and Caroline Palmer all star in the tale that goes like this:

While on her bachelorette party getaway, Casey, the bride to be, gets a seemingly harmless bite from an unknown insect. After returning home with cold feet, Casey tries to call off her wedding, but before she’s able to, she starts exhibiting insect-like traits. Between her physical transformation and her wedding anxiety, Casey succumbs to her new instincts and begins creating a hive that not only houses her translucent eggs but feeds on the flesh of others. As her transformation becomes complete, Casey discovers that everything can change with a single bite.

Ready for a look at the gooey fun?  Feast your eyes on this brand new clip.

‘Scream Queens’ S2 Gets A Plot And Some Characters

SQ_S02_announcement_700x700Where you a fan of FOX’s ‘Scream Queens‘?  I was a little on the fence personally but….genre TV is genre TV and it’s always good to see horror TV do well and apparently enough folks watched Scream Queens to give us a second serving.

We’ve known this for a while now but what we didn’t know was what season two was going to feature.  Got that situation fixed today.  We know now that season two will be set in a hospital and that many of the season one favorites will be back – Jamie Lee Curtis among them.

Ms. Curtis herself confirmed the return of Billie Lourd, Abigail Breslin, Emma Roberts, Keke Palmer, Lea Michele and Niecy Nash- she also confirmed that she will once again play Dean Cathy Munsch only this time she will be running a hospital instead of a college.

The following character break downs also found the light of day:

The Chanels (Roberts, Breslin, Lourd): Following up on the season finale, the Chanels have been committed to mental institution, where they’ll be studying under their former nemesis Dean Munsch.

Hester (Michele): While Falchuk didn’t detail Hester (a.k.a. Chanel #6’s) role in the operations of the hospital, he said, “In this hospital, there’s some funny business going as well.  There’s an aspect to this show that involves murder and a killer and in those ways Hester is going to be intimately involved.”

Zayday (Palmer): After graduating from Wallace University in two years, Zayday will be training to become a doctor under the supervision of Dean Munsch.

Dean Munsch (Curtis): After traveling the world in search of a new passion, Dean Munsch buys a hospital and will “run this hospital the way she sees fit.”

Denise (Nash): Denise is now a member of the FBI and will cross paths with the other characters when her expertise is needed to solve the worsening problems at the hospital.

No word on when we’ll see the start of season two but just going out on a limb here – I would say this fall.
