A b-movie of the most clever variety.

- Watched yet again, this time in Blu-ray. This movie never gets old to me, and I love every second of it. I think the chemistry between Fred Ward and Kevin Bacon really helps to make it. Check it out!

- Watched yet again...LOVE this movie!

- I absolutely love this movie. Pure cheesy fun with great chemistry between the leads Ward and Bacon and some strong supporting work from Gross and McEntire. This is one of the movies I have watched the most times and never gets old tome. Highly recommended for a fun movie.

A highly-entertaining horror comedy that feels fresh whilst at the same time having a 1950s monster movie feel to it. The excellent pairing of the likable Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward, with a lovely Finn Carter, as our heroes, along with some wonderful creature creations, ensure that this is always an engaging and thrilling ride.

Another entertaining movie from the 90s. A no-brainer monster feature that is both fun and funny. A simple suspenseful story that works without trying too hard. Brings back the childhood memories.

Kevin Bacon and Fred ward make a great duo!

This classic horror movie homage has itself become a classic horror movie.

Well-scripted, well-acted movie with great practical special effects.

Wonderful unapologetic throwback! "CAN YOU FLY?"

Extremely average. Nothing specifically memorable as a horror, action, or comedy movie.

I have such fond memories of Tremors. It's one of those great monster B movie movies that can withstand hundreds of watches. This Horror Comedy sees a remote small town terrorised by giant underground worms. Kevin Bacon is in his prime and all the characters bring a little special something that make this a cracking Sci-Fi fun filled classic.

Endlessly rewatchable B-Movie fun, Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward make an excellent double act!

I know I should be watching one of the 20+ new films I have on my PVR, but I still ended up watching this live. It's a great B movie premise delivered as well as it could, not particularly scary or even jumpy, but plenty of laughs along the way.
July 20, 2013
It's great, do NOT watch an edited version. Kevin Bacon is awesome in this thing. Under rated

This B-movie about underground killer worms takes the children's play time idea of "don't touch the ground" and simply has fun with it. What if every tremor you create could attract something that might kill you? How would you move and where? The film makes the most of this premise without ever taking itself too seriously. That is as charming as it is entertaining. It's also refreshing to see a film that shows some respect for the minor characters and doesn't kill off anyone who isn't a main character at every opportunity. When it comes to monster films this is still high up there.

Strangely entertaining for its content and cast of characters, "Tremors" is beyond definition for a number of reasons. Trying to shoehorn this film into a genre is quite difficult because it touches on themes that are developed in science fiction, horror, thriller, and comedy. Every bit of this film is beyond comparison, goes a different route than what you except, has interesting plot and characters, and actually horrifies the viewer at various points. Monster movie best describes this film as it centers around the evolutionary phenomenon of giant sand worms, ("Dune" anyone?) trying to kill a group of people. The setting is a very small (14 people) village in the middle of the Nevada desert, trapped thanks to a landslide at their only road out of town. Under the ground there roams three worms out to get them, which is a number figured out by seismology grad student Rhonda. Also in the mix are two gun nuts, a couple of day laborers, several families, and a shop owner. They outwit the worms with different ploys but the worms find ways around them, oftentimes resorting to destroying everything in their path just to suck them down into the sandy abyss. There is a certain amount of cheesiness and cloddish humor to this film, but it always works. There is never a moment when something is so oafish or juvenile that it doesn't let you laugh or find this film entertaining. A lot of what makes this film enjoyable is the diverse ranks of the cast, ranging from Reba McEntire as an obsessed, gun toting rebel to a teenage boy poking fun at the situation to everyone's chagrin and irritation. Also, though there isn't any CGI or stop motion animation to this early nineties' film, its' effects are amazing and really scare. You're most afraid when you can't even see the worms, reminiscent of "Jaws," which is probably the best comparison to this entertaining film.
