Blast Vegas: The next Sharknado?

Syfy's latest lo-fi disaster flick

Blast Vegas: The next Sharknado?

The unexpected stupendousness of Sharknado has boosted Syfy's hopes for Blast Vegas.

The cheeky cable network's latest genre-mashing, actor-recycling schlockstravaganza - this one about heedless, hedonistic "spring breakers" unintentionally unleashing various CGI horrors upon Las Vegas - premieres at 9 EDT Thursday.

We'll see if the sight of Frankie Muniz pursued by ancient demons on the Strip ignites the Twitterverse as brightly as did Sharknado, in which Tara Reid and the rest of Los Angeles are besieged by flying sharks.

Meanwhile, there's good news for Sharknado fans; a repeat showing of this instant classic will precede Blast Vegas.

Even better: Syfy wants a sequel.
