Top 5 cult horror classics to rival Sharknado 2

Monsters and zombies; aliens and ghosts: you only have to look at our favourite cult films to identify humanities worst fears.

But in 2013 we were introduced to a new type of fear; a fear that none of us could have predicted: shark tornadoes.

With its bad acting, questionable effects and flying sharks, Sharknado immediately secured itself a spot on people’s favourite b-grade horrors lists.

Now, a year later, Sharknado 2 has made it to our screens. It premiered on Foxtel this morning and is playing on Syfy +2 right now. And if you’re reading this, you’re probably missing it right now.

Don’t worry if you do miss it though (damn work), it’s airing again tonight at 9.30pm.

If one laugh-filled cult classic isn’t enough to get you through the week (and let’s admit it, it never is!) then we have the perfect list to get you through to Sunday.
