Barricade the windows and cue the Jaws soundtrack, because one of the greatest cinematic train wrecks of all time is returning to select Valley theaters for one night only.

And this time, it's a sequel.

For those who missed the July 31 television debut of Sharknado 2: The Second One on SyFy, alternative entertainment providers Fathom Events are now selling tickets to four special screenings throughout metro Phoenix.

These big-screen viewings will be held simultaneously at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 31, at AMC Mesa Grande 24, AMC Ahwatukee 24, AMC Desert Ridge 18, and Digiplex Surprise Pointe 14.

Much like the first Sharknado, this slapstick sci-fi thriller sequel will center on airborne sharks hellbent on devouring the citizens of a major metropolitan city (this time, New York). Alongside the original film's cast of D-list actors including Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, Sharknado 2 will add some fresh new faces to no doubt be torn apart by an unnatural storm of carnivorous water mammals, including Vivica A. Fox, Judah Friedlander, Kari Wuhrer, Mark McGrath, and Kelly Osbourne.

Participants of this limited screening will also receive a 10 minute sneak peak of behind-the-scenes production including never-before-seen footage, special effects, and bloopers. For information and to purchase tickets ($12.50), visit www.fathomevents.com.
