Tremors has a few clever twists but ultimately can't decide what it wants to be - flat-out funny, which it's not, or a scarefest.
Horror/comedies often tread too far to one side or the other of that fine line; Tremors walks it like a tightrope.
| Original Score: 3/4
This is what a monster movie is supposed to be like, and it's terrific.
More than anything else, it looks like the sort of movie that might have been put together so that tourists visiting Universal Studios could see a movie being made.
A delightful throwback to such '50s and '60s films as "Them," "The Deadly Mantis" and "Attacks" of both "The Giant Leeches" and "The Crab Monsters."
