While we bow to no one in our devotion to Sharknado, we must acknowledge it suffered a shocking lack of vampires. And zombies. Happily, the company that brought us Sharknado, aptly named The Asylum, has rectified at least part of that situation: Sharknado network Syfy announced today that on Saturday, November 9, it will premiere its new movie about a sister and brother team, prospecting for gold in an underwater cave, who accidentally disturb a colony of blood-sucking amphibious predators, aka sea vampires, who can function on land without having to wait for some freakish weather system to wreak havoc on the area — just dim-witted gold-prospecting siblings. It’s called Beast Of The Bering Sea — presumably Vampnado was taken.
Tragically, Jonathan Lipnicki, that cute little kid from Jerry Maguire, plays the brother, and Sharknado’s Cassie Scerbo is returning to Syfy as the sister. Kevin Dobson (Knots Landing) also stars, and your guess is as good as mine as to who, or what.

Stonados will premiere on the network on Saturday, November 23. It’s about — you know it’s coming — a freak weather system, that causes the hurling of deadly boulders.
