The monster pic manages to be funny and clever, and deservedly has become a cult classic.

I think there should be a lot more movies like Tremors out there, and no I don't mean more sequels.

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.

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.

The pinnacle of recent B-monster movies. It's what Eight Legged Freaks wants to grow up to be.

The blueprint for how to do projects like this right: care about your material, but don't lose your sense of humor.

The film, for what it is, is a success, complete with every laughable line of dialogue and every screaming death.

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."

Sure, this is 1950s B-movie type stuff but Tremors is fast-paced, funny and clever enough to make it all worth watching.

There's definitely a campy tone to most of the laughs, but Bacon and Ward are deadpan as they make wisecracks, resulting in a satisfying combination of humor and horror.

Tremors evokes the spirit of cheesy monster movies without resorting to copying, parody, or mere irony.
