Sharks combined with Tornado? Sharknado movie made its bow Thursday night on the Syfy channel staring Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. The TV movie hit the social media, becoming an Internet sensation on Twitter.

The story is about a powerful storm that drives all the sharks into the path of a deadly tornado in Los Angeles creating devastation and casualties. Only Ian and Tara could save them.

“The Tornado is heading towards the airport” a frightened Reid, 37, says in the trailer. "We need to destroy it before it gets to it!"

The Big Lebowski actress joked on Twitter ahead of the premiere, "I actually can't wait for Sharknado it might be even better then Snakes on a Plane. Lol I hope you will have as much fun as I had."

The film’s director, Anthony Ferrante, also went to the social media website to give his remarks: “I have never been part of something this crazy ... the whole world is watching my insane little movie and talking about it.”

In the Twitterverse, a hashtag #Sharknado became a top trending topic early this Friday.

"If youre looking for one dimensional characters, terribly inconstant lighting, & sharks getin thrown out of tornadoes I recommend #SharkNado," said filmmaker Brian Naughton.

Hookjaw Rox added: "We are SO fortunate to have this blessing to keep us entertained in between basketball and football season! #SharkNado #killme"

Twitter users also gave advices of how to kill the sharks. "Ways to kill an airborne shark. Shotgun, revolver, chainsaw, knife, big stick, bomb, Car, fire, pickax, sudden stop," tweeted Mike'l Severe, an Omaha, Nebraska, sports talk show host.

The made-for-TV movie debuted at 9 p.m. EST Thursday night, peaking at over 5,000 tweets per minute at 10:58 p.m., according to Fox News.

Despite the success on Twitter, the SyFy movie about flying sharks and bad weather was seen by just over 1 million people, with a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic in early Nielsen numbers.

According to Claire Sudddath reports, most Syfy originals have an average viewership of 1.5 million people, with some getting twice that.
