Look out! Syfy is following up the Sharknado with a Stonado

After scoring a monster hit with Sharknado earlier this year, Syfy has announced they’ll be another ‘nado coming soon — and no, we’re not talking about Sharknado 2.

The network has announced the original flick Stonados will premiere Nov. 23, described as a “disaster movie about a freak weather system which hurls deadly boulders.” The movie will star Paul Johanssen (One Tree Hill), William B. Davis (The X Files) and Thea Gill (Queer as Folk). Sharks are pretty scary, sure, but there’s also some blunt allure to being crushed to death by flying boulders.

But that’s not all. On Nov. 9, the network will debut the original movie Beast of the Bering Sea, which will follow a “sister and brother team prospecting for gold, who accidentally disturb a colony of blood-sucking amphibious predators (sea vampires) in an underwater cave.” Yeah, that’s right — sea vampires. This one will star Cassie Scerbo (Sharknado) and Jonathan Lipnicki (Jerry Maguire).

Do you think either of these flicks will capture the social media zeitgeist like Sharknado did?
