The highly-anticipated "Sharknado" sequel "Sharknado 2: The Second One" premieres July 30 to the delight of camp-thriller fans everywhere. The SyFy juggernaut is the perfect example of a purposeful (and successful) crack at a so-bad-it's-good film -- where the epic ridiculousness is the point and anything goes.
And part of the reason we enjoy watching something like "Sharknado" is that its aim is to not take itself seriously whatsoever -- clearly the movie's not gunning for Emmys or acting accolades. And camp, extreme situations, and overly dramatic dialogue has been a big part of TV movie history. Sure, not every made-for-television film sets out to be a joke, but there are quite a few that present such ridiculous premises that they have to be seen to be believed. It's not all tornado sharks here, of course, but that doesn't make them any less fun to watch. Sometimes the bad can be delightfully good.
Here are 11 TV movies that are so bad you just have to watch them.
