    Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward star as two country handymen who lead a cast of zany characters to safety in this exciting sci-fi creature adventure. Just as Val McKee (Bacon) and Earl Basset (Ward) decide to leave Perfection, Nevada, strange rumblings prevent their departure. With the help of a shapely seismology student (Finn Carter), they discover their desolate town is infested with gigantic man-eating creatures that live below the ground. The race is on to overcome these slimy subterraneans and find a way to higher ground in this enjoyable thriller co-starring Michael Gross and Reba McEntire

    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars "perfection" in a comedy-horror film November 9, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray
    Successfully mixing comedy and horror is a near-impossibility. There aren't many good comedy-horror films -- "Gremlins" and "Army of Darkness" come to mind. And, of course, the mother of them all, "Bride of Frankenstein". "Tremors" is another outstanding film to add to this list.

    What is particularly remarkable is that Ron Underwood, in his first job as director, nails it. Everything is... perfection. The timing, the tone, the pacing, are all models for this sort of film. It's as if he'd been directing all his life.

    The casting is good, too. Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward make an interesting odd couple of handymen, with Ward about 20 years older than Bacon. Ward easily out-sexies Bacon, sauntering with widespread legs and swaying hips, as if he's just wandered in from a blue jeans commercial.

    Except for the excessive edge enhancement (the worst I've seen in any Blu-ray), the image quality is excellent. The film appears to have been shot full-frame, without an in-camera mask, and the widescreen Laserdisk version looked as if it had been cropped too closely (which seems to be a problem at Universal), with a decidedly "claustrophobic" quality to some scenes. This edition appears perfectly framed.

    TECHNICAL NOTE: The Blu-ray seems to be derived from the same source as the HD-DVD, with severe edge sharpening. This is particularly noticeable in the travelling matte shot in Burt's basement -- you can see a white line surrounding him. A few seconds later, the Gummers are on the roof, and there are white lines around /everything/. It's pathetic. (These aren't the only examples, just the worst ones.)

    Listen, Universal... I doubt most films need much (if any) sharpening. Certainly not /this/ much.

    4.0 out of 5 stars One of my childhood faves! December 25, 2012
    By Abigail
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    I hadn't seen this movie in over 10 years, it used to play in our basic local channels when I was a kid, and I remember really liking it, being really afraid of the worm things, remembering mr. miyagi's death and thinking "HOLY CRAP THEY JUST ATE MR. MIYAGI!" lol. So when I saw it here for a really low price, I bought it, recently watched it, and loved it just as much as I did when I was a child. Definitely entertaining enough, Kevin Bacon is REALLY young in this, and you get to see Reba kicking some worm ass. The image quality in blu-ray is really good, considering this is a movie from the 80's.

    5.0 out of 5 stars What a hoot! April 11, 2007
    Format:DVD
    What a hoot! A great cast that plays this crazy story perfectly straight. They get us to buy into every bit of the story no matter how wrong every "scientific" premise of the story is. Each of the characters is colorful and we root for them in the way they individually deal with the crisis of these "new" creatures attacking their valley home.

    Valentine McKee (Kevin Bacon) and Earl Bassett (Fred Ward) are the closest thing to heroes and normal among the males in the movie. They become the leaders and the ones the plot leans on. The most colorful characters are Burt and Heather Gummer (Michael Gross and Reba McEntire) as the survivalist couple with enough food storage and weaponry to stand for five years against an invading army. The Michael Gross character is the one who is in all four movies and a few episodes of the TV series based on the movies. Although, a few others lasted through one or more of the sequels (think of Tony Genaro's Miguel). However, this is the best of the series.

    Victor Wong, whom we greatly miss, is terrific as the local shop owner, Walter Chang. In every role I have seen him play, I enjoy his presence and think he makes the movie better.

    I guess the whole "Dune" series made the idea of large worms that could move through dirt as easily as a fish through water more believable. And the monsters in this movie are quite good. Because they are underground we believe that all the moving dirt, floors, walls, and machines to be the results of those things being down there and threatening not only the characters, but us! We don't want to get eaten by them any more than they people inhabiting the movie.

    And while things get worse and worse for the cast, we still enjoy their inventiveness in trying to get out. That worms are as intelligent as these seem to be does require another leap of faith. But we are willing to make it for this story.

    Lots of fun!
