The 5 Greatest Syfi Beasts

With everyone talking about the new Sharknado, it’s important to remember that this deadly storm isn’t the only crazy Syfi creation. Always true to their strange, yet hilarious, creatures, these are the top 5 Syfi monsters.

Piranhaconda is the lowest on the list because, while giant and scary, the half-fish, half-snake combo is not as imaginative as other SyFi creations. Some genius scientists in Hawaii decide to steal their eggs and, naturally, chaos ensues. The Piranhacondas attack hikers, film makers, and kidnappers. You’d think the government would send out some sort of warning.

In the film Dinocroc vs. Supergator, scientists at Drake Industries Research Lab in Hawaii (go ahead and take Hawaii off your bucket list) create each monster and naturally both escape captivity. While an “elite army group” is called in to kill the beasts, they all die. Dinocroc eventually wins the battle and kills Supergator. At the end of the film you see baby monsters, which could be either Supergators or Dinocrocs. Or, maybe a combo of both. Dun, dun, duuuuuun!

3. Pteracuda

Dr. Rico Symes decides to build a biological weapon by fusing pterodactyl DNA with a barracuda, creating a monster that can terrorize land, sea, and air. Seeing a pattern here? This are going well until the “animal” is hijacked by a rogue engineer that wants to sell it to the highest bidder. Sadly, the man accidentally sets it free. They find the only solution is to use sharktopus to neutralize the threat, because two free beasts makes way more sense than one.

Once again, a monster is spawned by a genetical engineer on a team called “Blue Water.” Designed for combat in the US Navy, the half-shark, half-octopus breaks free during a demonstration and attacks numerous beach-goers. He is eventually taken down by a detonating explosive embedded in its brain. The real question is why it took so long for them to decide to detonate.

1. Ghost Shark

After a great white eats the potential catch of a fisherman, he and his daughter torture the shark before killing it. You’d think that that’d be the end of it, but the shark turns into a ghost out for revenge. After killing those who tortured him, he decides to go after the community via swimming pools, puddles, pipes, you name it. They eventually go after it and put the rogue ghost to rest once and for all. As if human ghosts weren’t scary enough. This tops number one for being the most creative beast. Either the ghost whisperer was on the writing team or someone showed up to the story board meeting on acid.
