Filmmakers have long pitted man against pumped up predators for our puny minds’ entertainment.
Pedigree productions like King Kong (the 1933 original, not the Peter Jackson remake) and Steven Spielberg’s Jaws pioneered bringing big bad animals to the big screen.
In more recent years though, the battle of man versus beast has become a fetish of the b-movie producer. The crap CGI and limitless absurdity seems to lend itself perfectly to an almighty animal showdown.
The trouble is, there aren’t many species of predator that have avoided the slapstick, porno style treatment of the modern day b-movie. Pirahnas, crocodiles, sharks, bees. In fact, Rise of the Animals pretty much checked them all off. Even squirrels.
Some, though, have decided to put a twist on this b-movie trope. The genius’ (you decide) behind Sharknado, took an already terrifying animal and threw in the threat of a tornado.
