The next B-movie classic? Syfy follows Sharknado with Stonados, about exploding rocks from the sky
Syfy also set to air a movie about a colony of sea vampires
Friday 18 October 2013
Sharknado, which aired in July this year, became an internet sensation as a result of its implausible plot and its terrible special effects.
And now the Syfy channel is looking for a repeat performance with a film about deadly rocks and boulders, called Stonados, which is set to air on 23 November in the US.
The trailer for the film shows the city of Boston being overwhelmed by huge ball-sized stones that are not only falling from the sky, but exploding "like bombs" on impact.
According to Deadline, the film was originally set to air on 27 April, but the Boston Marathon bombing twelve days earlier saw it removed from the schedule.
Paul Johansson of One Tree Hill and William B. Davis of The X-Files star in the film.
Coming even sooner, on 9 November, is Beast Of The Bering Sea. Sharknado actress Cassie Scerbo and Jonathan Lipnicki (famous as a child actor for his roles in Jerry Maguire and Stuart Little) star as siblings who accidentally disturb a colony of sea vampires while prospecting for gold.
Sadly for the duo, the vampires are also able to function on land.
The highly anticipated follow-up to Sharknado, titled Sharknado 2: The Second One, will air in July next year.
