Product Description

Amazon.ca

Who would have guessed that this clever, fast-paced creature feature from 1990 would become a beloved miniclassic worthy of its own Collector's Edition DVD? Tremors didn't actually break any new ground (even though its tunneling worm monsters certainly did), but it revved up the classic monster-movie formulas of the 1950s with such energetic enthusiasm and humor that it made everything old seem new again. It's also got a cast full of enjoyable actors who clearly had a lot of fun making the film, and director Ron Underwood strikes just the right balance of comedy and terror as a band of small-town rednecks battles a lot of really nasty-looking giant worms. The special effects are great, the one-liners fly fast and furious between heroes Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward (and yes, that's country star Reba McEntire packin' awesome firepower), and it's all done with the kind of flair one rarely associates with goofy monster flicks like this. Followed by a direct-to-video sequel (Tremors: Aftershocks), this horror thriller was given the deluxe treatment for its DVD release. Bonus features include an original "making-of" documentary, previously unseen video showing the creation of the worm-creatures, outtakes from the film, the original ending not shown in theaters, theatrical trailers, and a gallery of production photographs. If you're a fan, consider this a must-have disc! --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Consider it stepped on May 25 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
There are worse things than living in Perfection, Nevada. For instance, thirty-foot-long burrowing man-eating worms with snake tongues.

And sadly our heroes have both problems in "Tremors," a dark-comedy/cult-horror flick that has no pretenses of being anything other than what it is -- a wonderfully twisted movie about big gross monsters that explode out of the ground if you step on it. Ron Underwood keeps the worm attacks going all the way to the end, along with splatters of monster gore, exploding floorboards, and lots of rock-paper-scissors.

Hired-hands Earl (Fred Ward) and Val (Kevin Bacon) are intent on getting out of the sun-baked, dead-end town of Perfection, especially since they're the guys everyone hires for the grossest jobs.

But then they encounter a pair of men who died under bizarre circumstances -- and when they rush back to warn the other citizens, a grotesque snake-creature is found on their truck. With the phone lines dead and the road blocked, Val and Earl try to ride horses to the nearest town -- only to discover that the snake-worm-thing is actually one of the tongues of a vast subterranean worm that sucks people down and eats them. Ew.

With the help of grad student Rhonda (Finn Carter), the guys manage to elude the marauding worms and discover a foolproof way of staying out of their reach. Unfortunately staying indoors isn't enough to stop the worms: they're capable of detecting the slightest vibration, strong enough to rip the town apart, and smart enough to figure out a way. But how can Val and Earl get the Perfectionites out of the town without being eaten by worms? For this, they'll need a PLAN!

"Tremors" is not a brilliant movie, nor is it a deep or groundbreaking one.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Get off the Ground!" May 12 2004
By CreepyT
Format:DVD
Val (Kevin Bacon) and Earl (Fred Ward) are two men trying to make a living in a sleepy, dusty little town, and eventually move themselves on to bigger and better things. However, a few suspicious deaths, and a rockslide blocking the only road out of town put a kink in their plans. Together, a female geologist (Finn Carter) recording seismic activity in the area, and the two unlikely heroes set out to determine the cause of the strange seismic readings and the local deaths. They get much more than they bargained for when they determine that a previously unheard of creature (a "graboid") is the cause of both. This eyeless creature travels through the ground tracking small vibrations in order to get to its prey. The townspeople must band together to try and get out of the valley before the small town's population dwindles down to zero.
The "monster" in this movie is something somewhat believable, as well as something that hasn't been done before. There are thousands of estimated species on this planet that we do not yet know about, and have yet to be discovered. Who's to say whether one of them is or is not a large underground-dwelling, vibration-sensing snake? It's slightly more believable, and thus slightly more scary than, Dracula, Frankenstein, or aliens. Regardless, it's an idea that hadn't been done before at the time, and hasn't been done since (not counting the less-than-stellar sequels to this film), and that's always a good thing no matter what genre of film.
This was one of the movies that got me into horror films. It definitely proves that "horror" need not be gory, high budget, or flashy to be great. In addition, a little comic relief can be a good thing! Furthermore, "B" horror films need not always equate with "bad" horror films.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Creature Film March 9 2004
Format:DVD
Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward are a pair on down-on-their-luck guys living in the small town of Perfection (population 16). They have decided it is finally time to get out of the valley and head for Bixby. But they have made their decision one day too late. Strange events have them running back and forth as they try to leave. Then a rockslide closes the only road out of the valley. Now they are stuck with the other residents including the Gummers played by Reba McEntire and Michael Gross.
Strange deaths and missing animals have started to occur in the valley. Then something grabs the guys truck and everyone sees a snake monster and gets their first view of the graboids. But while trying to warn others about the snake monsters, Fred and Kevin discover the monsters are much bigger than thought and they travel under the ground.
The rest of the movie has the inhabitants banding together first to avoid the monsters, then to destroy them and get out of the valley. Some survive and some do not.
The action is tense with moments of humor (I love the pole vaulting and the headlights shining in the sky). The monsters are very well done and very original. Good performances from most of the cast add to the mix resulting in a tight and fun creature film. This is a real must see for creature fans. My wife, not a fan of horror or monsters, also liked this movie when we first saw it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic July 16 2004
By Morely
Format:DVD
The best movies are those in which you don't expect much and then it blows you away. I've read the other reviews and all those that are five star are on target. What can I add? Some of the banter, and curse words (that are not just the f word over and over) are orginal. The pseudoscientific stream involved with seismology, and sensitivity to sound is wonderfully written. All in all a classic tongue firmly in cheek movie.
