‘Sharknado Week’ wrecks havoc on the Syfy channel

It’s time for shark week again – but with that unique Syfy twist.

The Syfy channel’s second annual “Sharknado Week,” starting Saturday, will feature seven original movie premieres as part of a celebration of the anticipated debut of “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” on Wednesday.

Additionally, the network will run shark and creature features daily through next Saturday including marathons on Saturday, Sunday and next Saturday. The movie premieres showcase the return of Syfy veterans sharktopus (part shark/part octopus) and mega shark (the extinct giant shark, megalodon) as well as the introduction of whalewolf and a three-headed shark.
