Tara Reid is back for another installment of over-the-top idiocy we can't resist in Sharknado 3

Sharknado began as a 2013 made-for-tv film that aired on Syfy channel (I still think it should have remained as SciFi) that received surprisingly positive reviews. We all know it's a dreadful movie with a base premise stemming from reality that becomes so distorted we wonder if the 2015 sequel will have sharks invade the moon.

To get ready for the festivities of another Sharknado flick, you can install the Go Shark Yourself app allows you to photograph yourself into a Sharknado and share it on your social networks. Be on the lookout for a lot of cameos as well. A sequel is a nice addition, but when you get a 3rd installment, it seems clear that this will be a yearly event and everyone want to be part of the silliness.

With a third movie debuting, I think the Skarknado franchise now offers more factual info than Discovery Channel's dismal faux reality show, Shark Week.

Sharknado 3 The Sharknado franchise has revived Tara Reid's career to some degree. Last I recall she was Hollywood's party-girl with her reputation circling the drain. These days she's Shark-tastic and has a pretty entertaining Instagram account.

The producers (and everyone else who strives to collect money from this franchise) have assured us that Sharknado 4 will be arriving next summer in 2016 to resolve the outcome of April Wexler. From Tara Reid's Instagram post, fans seem ardent about keeping her in the cast...

Will April return in Sharknado 4?
