Tremors (1990)

Genre:Horror,Science Fiction, Comedy

Starring: Fred Ward, Kevin Bacon, Reba McEntire

I once heard someone say, “It’s unpatriotic to hate Tremors(1990).  While I won’t go that far, I will say I really like the movie.

Tremors is a horror/sci-fi movie mixed with humor and stars one of America’s favorite sons, Kevin Bacon. Tremors  also features Fred Ward and country music star Reba McEntire.

The film is about giant tunneling worms/monsters that have a taste for humans and just about anything else on the ground. They are awoken and now terrorize a small western town which tries to escape and or destroy them.

The movie has a nice variety of strange, yet lovable characters.  From the gun loving, doomsday prepper Burt Gummer to a hard working old school odd jobs guy named Earl Basset, to the young and free spirited Valentine McKee

I love the the first movie a great deal.  I even liked the sequel Tremors 2; Aftershocks (1996), although I wouldn’t exactly call it a good movie, it was fun.

The Tremors franchise would go on for three more movies and it really should have stopped with two. (Though I would love to take a try at making one.)  Aside for a few moments in each, I don’t care for the later films.

Stick to Tremors at first, if you like that, perhaps you’ll also enjoy the second one.
