Forget Dr. Evil's wish for "sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads" in Austin Powers, SyFy has one-upped the villain with its latest made-for-TV horror b-movie "Sharknado."

Tara Reid, Ian Ziering and Cassie Scerbo star in the latest monster mash-up, about a hurricane driving sharks to migrate to the waters off Los Angeles, where a tornado is brewing. The result? The tornado picks thousands of sharks out of the water and deposits them throughout L.A., causing mass hysteria and lot (LOTS) of bloodletting.

Appropriately-named beachside bar owner Fin (Ziering) teams up with his ex-wife (Reid) and hottest bartender (Scerbo) to try and come up with a plan to stop the tornado before all of southern California becomes shark bait.

What's the best way to get rid of a Sharknado? Why, blow it up, of course.

"Sharknado" premieres Thursday, July 11 at 9pm (ET) on SyFy.

The New York Daily News says, "It’s absurd. It’s ridiculous. If you’re a fan of low-budget horror movies and you miss it, you will regret it for the rest of your life.

Check out the awesome trailer below (some graphic imagery)...
