The 15 Most Ridiculous Syfy Movies Ever Made

We’ve probably all seen more Syfy movies than we’d care to admit. But with premises involving mutant animals, super low budgets, laughable special effects, and a rotating cast of D-Listers, it’s hard to look away. Never change, Syfy. Here’s a collection of some of the most ridiculous movies the channel has ever aired.

1. Sharknado


The only thing more ridiculous than sharks getting hurled onto land by a freak storm is the fact that Tara Reid stars in this movie.

2. Mega Python vs. Gatoroid


80s teen pop stars Tiffany and Debbie Gibson go head-to-head in this bizarre film about mutant reptiles. There’s even a fight scene between the two in a swamp.

3. Jersey Shore Shark Attack

Capitalizing on the success of Jersey Shore, this movie even features one of the reality show’s cast-members: Vinny Guadagnino. Bonus appearance by Joey Fatone.

4. Piranhaconda

As you might have guessed, this movie is about a half piranha, half anaconda creature. It attacks a movie crew after its egg is stolen.

5. Dinocroc vs. Supergator

Dinocroc and Supergator (aka huge alligators) escape from the lab and go on a killing spree.

6. Ice Spiders

Arachnophobes beware! This movie features giant spiders wreaking havoc on a ski resort. Only an Olympic ski team can stop them!

7. Sharktopus


Syfy loves their genetically engineered creatures. In this thriller, a shark-octopus hybrid terrorizes a city.

8. Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda

The child of Shaktopus battles a half Pterodactyl, half barracuda hybrid. Yes, we realize how insane that sentence sounds.

9. Malibu Shark Attack

Another day, another shark attack. This time an earthquake unleashes prehistoric sharks that attack the California beach town.

10. Mansquito

A scientist researching a cure for the West Nile virus accidentally crossbreeds himself with a mosquito. Who comes up with these?!

11. Dinoshark

A prehistoric shark (again) starts killing tourists in Mexico. Eric Balfour stars.

12. Wyvern

A human-eating dragon escapes and attacks a small Alaskan town. It’s the most action the town’s seen in years!

13. Ghost Shark

The shark is a ghost. And it’s attacking people. Not just in the ocean, but in bathtubs and on water slides too.

 14. Rage of the Yeti

A group of treasure hunters face off with a Yeti in the Artic. Because why not?

15. Frankenfish

Mutated snakehead fish escape into the Louisiana bayou and starts feeding on humans. Tagline: “Welcome to the bottom of the food chain.”
