“Sharknado: The Critics’ Roast” is the first “Sharknado” film, featuring new, original commentary from two comedic film critics: The Cinema Snob and the Nostalgia Critic. “The Cinema Snob” is a comedy web series created by, written by, and starring Brad Jones as a pretentious film critic who uses wit and sarcasm to spotlight classic and forgotten exploitation films. The “Nostalgia Critic” comedy web series was created by and stars Doug Walker as an often angry, sarcastic critic who reviews films and TV series with exaggerated reactions. The two critics join forces to berate the cult classic in “Sharknado: The Critics’ Roast.”

Doug Walker (Nostalgia Critic) explains, "If you love learning about bad movies AND riffing on bad movies—especially bad movies that half the time riff on themselves—this is the perfect meta mess for you! Nostalgia Critic can be found at

"Sharknado is already funny, so now it's time to make it even funnier,” added Brad Jones (The Cinema Snob), whose channel can be found at

In addition to “The Critics’ Roast,” the entire “Sharknado” canon will be available to order on demand starting July 26, including: “Sharknado,” “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!,” “Sharknado 3: Extended Edition,” “Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens,” “Sharknado 5: Global Swarming,” “The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time,” and the mockumentary “Sharknado: Heart of Sharkness.” In addition to being available to rent on demand, all of these films will also be available for purchase through the participating cable companies.
