Luck be a lady named Tara Reid. The actress will reprise her role as April in Sharknado 4 set in Las Vegas. Syfy held a fan vote to determine the fate of April, who was moments away from being crushed by falling debris in the Sharknado 3 cliffhanger. This wouldn’t be the first time that she’s defied the odds.
April’s hand was bitten off by a flying shark in Sharknado 2. It was replaced with a Star Wars level prosthesis so we know they have the technology to rebuild her. April displays superhuman strength during a training montage that could indicate further cybernetic enhancements in the latest sequel. She even quotes the Terminator!
April’s father Willie (Gary Busey) rebuilds her but is unwilling to let his daughter rejoin her family only to lose her again. He keeps her confined unbeknownst to her family, who believe she’s been terminated. When the sharknadoes return, she breaks out.
“I’ll be back,” she tells her father.
She reunites with her husband Fin (Ian Ziering) and tells him, “Come with me if you want to live.”
It’s up to Tara Reid AKA TARAnator stop the literal rise of the sharks!
Despite all the Terminator quotes, Cyborg April most resembles the Man of Steel. An Easter egg has her recreating Superman’s iconic pose from his first appearance in Action Comics #1.
Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens premiere on July 31 at 8/7c.
