The kid from “Jerry Maguire” battles sea vampires in “Beast of the Bering Sea”
How do you improve on the awesome pile of televised WTF that was Syfy’s “Sharknado”? Duh — add do something about vampires, of course!
And not just any vampires – sea vampires! Which are easily one of the five most awesome varieties of vampires ever.
The network that brought the world the sharks-in-storms epic “Sharknado” revealed its latest original movie, “Beast of the Bering Sea,” on Thursday. The film, due to premiere Nov. 9 at 9 p.m., stars “Sharknado” alum Cassie Scerbo and “Jerry Maguire” actor Jonathan Lipnicki as a pair of siblings who go prospecting for gold and accidentally disturb a colony of blood-sucking amphibious predators (known as sea vampires) in an underwater cave.
“Knots Landing” alum Kevin Dobson also stars in the film, which comes via “Sharknado 2” producers The Asylum.

And just to prove that they’re not done with storm-related disaster movies, Syfy also announced the premiere date for another original movie, “Stonados.” In case you couldn’t tell from the totally straightforward title, “Stonados” revolves around a freak weather system that hurls deadly boulders.
“One Tree Hill” vet Paul Johanssen, William B. Davis of “The X Files” fame, and Thea Gill (“Queer as Folk”) star in “Stonados,” which hits the air Nov. 23 at 9 p.m.
