Tremors 4 - The Legend Begins [VHS]
Top Customer Reviews
In the first three films we were introduced to the three stages of Graboid physiology. In the fourth installment, we get to see what they look like soon after hatching. We also return to live-action worms and not the CGI that many complained about in the third movie.
The small town of Rejection is starting to boom as the local silver mine is very productive. But the mining disturbs something in the ground and the miners begin to disappear. Most of the town flees except a small handful. The mine's owner arrives, Mr. Gummer (again played by Michael Gross). This Gummer is different than his descendant in that he does not even own a gun.
Well, Gummer and the remaining residents set out to check the mine over and then get rid of the "dirt dragons" via a skilled gunslinger. In the end everyone must pull together to end the menace.
Some wonderful foreshadowing of the earlier movies. We see the development of the general store, Gummer's character, and other small bits. Quite fun and a welcome addition to the series although it takes a little getting used to not hearing the creatures referred to as Graboids.
The new baby graboid forms are to die for. The scenes of them launching out of the ground to try and hit their target into submission is great. Kinda laughed when one of the men got hit form both sides by 2 little ones.
Over all the movie was nearly almost as good as the original. Each character has their own special quality that makes them induring. Especially Black Hand Kelly. Most certainly going to be a Tremors fan fav when all is said and done.
Tremors 4 looks backwards at the origins of the town of Perfection and the Graboids. In making this a prequel, everything old is new again. We get the excitement of discovery all over again and we get to see the townsfolk REALLY scared.
For horror/action fans, this film is a real treat. Without a mega-budget, we're treated to innovative and exciting effects. Tremors 4 is a nod to the great horror and adventure films of he past. It's obvious how much passion the cast and crew put into this.
I'm a big fan of "Buffy," so I love the way this story blends humor, scares, action and the mythology of past films. If you've seen the other films, there are a ton of jokes and reference that you'll love here.
Tremors 4 is great entertainment for any monster fan.
This is a good film and a vast improvement over the poor series and the very low budget third movie. Michael Gross is on the ball again, playing the Great Grandfather of his better known Character Burt. The film does well to show the change in character of the Gummer's, from snooty businessmen to crazed gun-loving hunters. Also the fact the film moves away from the heavy CGI use seen in the TV Show and 3rd Film and goes back to the Anamatronic Puppet effects seen in the first two films does a lot to make the action more believable and steer it back towards the first movies quality.
The only slight downers with the film would be its slow start and the action seens are a little on the short side. Another thing I didn't like is that with this being a 'Straight to Video' production it has a low budget so the cast is pretty much as cheap as possible, so there is some really bad acting. However it didn't stop me from enjoying this film as I have the others in the series. I can only hope they keep the stories coming and hope for Tremors 5.Read more ›
