STARRING: Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Finn Carter, Michael Gross, Reba McEntire, Bobby Jacoby

1990, 96 Minutes, Directed by: Ron Underwood

Imagine the little desert town of It Came from Outer Space II being threatened by a bunch of Medusa-headed, man-eating worms from Dune with an attitude and you have a pretty good idea what Tremors is all about. Sure, this is 1950s B-movie type stuff but Tremors is fast-paced, funny and clever enough to make it all worth watching.

Fun in an instantly forgettable sort of way, yeah, but worth the price of a rental alone for the funny gun-toting survivalist couple in the movie. File this one under unexpected small surprise - a bit like The Hidden . . .

Incredibly, Tremors became such a popular cult hit that it spawned three direct-to-video sequels and even a TV series on the Sci-Fi Channel! Who would have guessed? Anyway, the sequels are: Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996), Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (2001), and Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (2004).


Sci-Fi Movie Page Pick: Fun. Dune lookalike worms attack a small desert town. Enjoyable and funny mayhem ensues mostly because of the local survivalist gun nut couple.
