Flat-out fun mix of comedy and horror

"That's how they git you. They're under the goddamned ground!" A devilishly enjoyable creature feature, Tremors has understandably endured as a cult classic over the decades on account of its solid blend of comedy, horror, believable special effects and shrewd writing. In a nutshell, Tremors is a throwback to the B-grade monsters movies of old, but with a contemporary feel and a more agreeable ton... read more

A 10 you say?

No, it is not deserving of any Academy Awards, but it sure is fun to watch. C'mon, the film even makes fun of itself, "I voted for outer-space, no way these are local boys." But that's why it's a good time, a few grisly deaths, and you can just sit back and have some fun thinking about if these things could roam around the desert for real.

Okay, no.<... read more

This is one of those movies that you almost don't want to admit to watching. It's entertaining, and it has Michael Gross (the dad from 'Family Ties') with a large gun collection.

You have to be careful in those small towns. You just don't know what's lurking in the valley.

" Date: 1/12/2020 Viewed: Netflix Re-Watch Note: I decided to rewatch Tremors on Netflix for the 30th anniversary and it still holds up very well. The special effects are still awesome even after 30 years later because they didn't use any CG for the movie. The movie also has a great cast of memorable characters and funny humor. I can't think of one single dull moment because this movie is a non-stop thrill ride from start to finish. There's not much else I can say about this movie that has not"

" TREMORS is what you get when you take a sharp script that knows very well what kind of a film it is and apply the appropriate type of filmmaking towards it. A tribute to monster features of the past, TREMORS is nonsensical done right."

"One of the mom and pop shops I frequented did their best to stop me from watching hard R movies and the way they did it was by recommending I watch Tremors over and over again. Gladly! Val and Earl alone kept me coming back but the moment you added monsters I was a sucker forever. "

Film Journal 2019 (225 movies items)

"A diamond script does a lot of heavy lifting for Tremors. A fast-paced setpiece showcase carried by an extremely effectively set-up comedy duo supported by an ensemble cast that you don't spend too much time building as characters. It has a brutal efficiency to it that a lot of, say, disaster films could learn from, even though this is technically more a monster feature. Fred Ward gets MVP by being that hella charmin' early 90s Fred Ward. He's even better when he gets sprayed by gushy yellow goo"
