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 ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Attention monster movie lovers:
TREMORS is nothing more then pure fun. The story takes place in a very small Western town that is besieged by four giant sluglike monsters. These slugs attack anything that causes a seismic vibration on the ground much like a piranha attacks anything that leaks blood. But these slugs chase after a would-be victim with the speed of a runaway train. And add to that, the surviving slugs seem to get smarter when one of their own is killed.

This is one film where the producers could have just put in a bunch of teenagers that only serve the purposes of taking their clothes off and being victims. But instead, we get a several enjoyable characters that we can actually care about. Fred Ward and Kevin Bacon are priceless as two laborers looking for work only to find - How do I put it? - man-eating slugs. Michael Gross, who plays an NRA poster boy, is far removed from his role as an ex-hippie on FAMILY TIES. His equally gun-toting wife is played by country singer Reba McIntyre, who turns in an impressive performance. Unlike all the FREDDY THE 13TH (Don't blame me if I can't tell'em apart) movies, you find yourself rooting for these people.

While this movie might not be CITIZEN KANE, it is a perfect rental for a Friday night.

4-0 out of 5 stars Classic horror/camp. A fun movie.
If you are looking for a good scare, Tremors is not the movie for you. However, if your goal is to be entertained, this is a great choice. Tremors is the story of two handymen, the people of the town they live in, and their encounters with a bunch of giant, man eating worms that live in the ground around the town. Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward, who play the two handymen, won't win any academy awards for this one, but their performances as two offbeat handymen looking for something better make the movie. Micheal Gross and Reba McEntire add to the campy feel of this film as a survivalist couple with enough firepower to start (and probably end) world war three. The special effects are good and the plot, while simple, keeps you involved. Overall, this is a movie that is overjoyed to make fun of itself.

As for comparisons I have seen between this movie and Dune (possibly the WORST adaptation of any book ever to hit the big screen - David Lynch should be ashamed at the way he treated this classic story) the only similarity is that both stories have giant worms in them. Don't let comparisons to Dune scare you off - this movie is in no way similar. Tremors tries hard to be just what it succeeds in being - a campy, funny, semi-horror film that has no other goal but to entertain. Enjoy the film!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Guess you broke into the wrong damn rec room, didn't ya!
In "Tremors," as you know, massive underground worms threaten to devour everyone in a small redneck town. I'm sure Freud would've loved it!

You'll love it too, if you have a penchant for cheerfully profane horror/comedy. "Tremors" is a delight, from the slightly bickering (and somewhat homoerotic) performances of Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward, to the offbeat casting, to the clever dialogue ("What kind of fuse is that?" "Cannon fuse." "What the hell do you use it for?" "My cannon."), to the worms themselves, which are totally convincing, if not all that scary.

It adds up to a wonderful waste of a couple hours. Is "Tremors" for you? Well, put it this way: if you're not interesting in seeing Steven Keaton and Reba McEntire blast the hell out of a massive worm from their underground arsenal, well, I just don't know how to talk to you.

5-0 out of 5 stars For sheer fun, "Tremors" can't be beat
What a rare treat to have comedy and horror blended together so amazingly well! This movie takes a standard thriller plot (small group of colorful characters becomes trapped by monsters and must work together and use their heads to figure out how to escape) and makes it seem brand-new. The rapport between the cast members--Bacon and Ward in particular--beautifully serves an already tight script. This movie has it all: drama, excitement, laughs, creativity, scares, and yes, even our hero's search for a good woman. Don't be put off by the fact that it co-stars Michael Gross and Reba McIntyre... their characters are two of the most enjoyable in the movie! As survivalists with somewhat itchy trigger fingers, the mere concept of these two characters could have easily plunged the movie into stupidity. But this is no inane shoot-'em-up flick. The direction and script are smart, and they don't let us down. Buy "Tremors." It's a blast. You won't regret it. I promise. If you don't love it, come find me and I will personally call you a moron. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars How I Got Into College
I have this movie on VHS and I am so excited that it is being released on DVD.
It's not a brilliant film but one that openly makes you laugh.
Anthony Edwards is fantastic as a college recruiter, he is one of the best parts of this movie.
This movie is so true to form for those have had struggles getting into the college of their dreams.
Lara Flynn Boyle is cute as the popular All-American coed and actually looks normal compared to her anorexic self these days.
I suggest that anyone who has a clue about the college admissions process see this movie if only to remember that time in their lives or to prepare for the process in their future.
There are also a few others who have bit parts that are great to watch including the late Phil Hartman who is always good for a few laughs.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Real Hoot!
This movie is one of my all time favorites. I show it every year during our state testing to help relieve test anxiety. Great for Junior High and High School kids.

3-0 out of 5 stars SPORADICALLY FUNNY TEEN PIC
IF YOURE A SIMPSONS FAN ITS WORTH SEEING THIS FILM JUST TO SEE THE LATE PHIL HARTMAN (RIP) MORE OR LESS BRING TROY MCLURE TO LIFE,ALSO THE LEAD COMES ACROSS QUITE ADAM SANDLERISH, UNFORTUNATLEY YOU CAN TELL THIS FILM HAS AGED QUITE A BIT THOUGH.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a "classic" when it comes to high school movies
I rank this one up there with "The Breakfast Club". It is great to see your classic "prom queen/valadictorian" from high school become humbled when she begins applying to college. All of a sudden, she isn't the big fish in the sea anymore. You cheer for Marlon, an average non-descript student, in the end...but I won't spoil it for anyone. This is a must-have!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Our family thoroughly enjoyed this spook on getting into col
This is a "B" movie, but one we have enjoyed over and over. It is human and real. The dream sequences relative to the unique SAT/ACT type questions are alone worth a look for any family who's near sending a child to college. This is a goofy movie, but one to see again and again, especially with your kids if you enjoy a fun, close relationship. ... Read more

The Pennsylvania Miners' Story gives a realistic and heartfeltdepiction of the true story of nine men trapped in coal mine. Afterbreaking into a water-filled abandoned mine, the nine miners struggle tostay alive while rescue crews fight against time to drill down. There areno surprises to the story, but the harrowing circumstances of both thetrapped men and their wives and children up above is made acutely,powerfully clear. What could be mawkish--for example, one shivering minerrealizes he didn't kiss his wife goodbye that morning--is givencompelling emotional weight by the movie's straightforward realismand solid performances by a largely unknown cast (the most famous face isprobably John Ratzenberger, from the TV show Cheers). Only thehardest heart could remain unmoved. --Bret Fetzer ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars piranha's in the wild
basically this movie is a one hour documentary that looks like one of those shows you would see on the discovery channel or maybe in high school biology class. its not bad, but its not great. nothing suprised me in it. its scenes of the jungle while a narrator says something every few moments or so. if you think this video is something out of a horror film where the piranhas kill everything in sight then you will be disappointed. they only eat a catfish alive, everything else is already dead. if you own piranhas,like me, and can appreciate them, then buy this video. but if your just a regular person and want to see piranhas kill things then i wouldn't. the finish it up, this slow pace film is average and i think the producers got most of the footage by recording clips off the learning channel or maybe even animal planet with the crocodile hunter.

Well, I bought the DVD for this film, and it was great! Anacondas are the largest predators in the New Kingdom. Learn how the people of the Amazon are influenced by this giant. Learn the Anaconda's hunting habits and find out how on earth the Anaconda swallows a large bird with a beak over 3 and a half feet long! You won't regret buying this one, so take my word for it.
