Cast / crew
When Val and Earl decide to leave the tiny town of Perfection, they do so just one day too late: giant alien worm things have arrived and have started to munch their way through all the neighbours.
One of the things that really differentiates this fun, thrilling treat of a monster movie is that the lead characters are nice; they’re pleasant, fun, friendly, thoughtful and helpful. Also something filmmakers have forgotten since is that monsters do not have to attack the whole world; in fact I would say a movie has a deeper automatic connection to the audience the smaller the target is. Though Tremors certainly delivers on the genre expectations it is also cleverer than usual. Firstly, nobody really does anything stupid throughout (difficult to overstate how uncommon that is), the two-part monster reveal works a treat, the rules laid down do not get broken (no vibration or rocks equals safe) and the climax is a classic. As is the movie.
This movie contains sexual swear words and violence, slightly gory scenes, unpleasant scenes.
