Critic Reviews for Tremors
It's a zippy melodrama for small-town America and small-towners at heart: well-executed kitsch for audiences that will still be amused at the notion that the bugs are getting so big, they'll drag us all down.
Tremors is the Slacker of monster movies: bemused, improvisatory, willfully low-key.
Unlike the typical movie homage, Tremors actually improves on the B-movies that inspired it.
Entertaining and unself-conscious enough to stand the test of time, even if the puppetry doesn't.
Tremors has a few clever twists but ultimately can't decide what it wants to be - flat-out funny, which it's not, or a scarefest.
Audience Reviews for Tremors
A cult classic. A great low budget B-movie feel to it, very funny to. Everyone should love this.
Now this is what a monster movie should be like: tense, entertaining as hell, funny and super well made - and I don't mean only those gooey creatures that look really nice on screen, but it is really cool how they make all those houses shake on their foundations like that.
Big fun B-movie as underground monsters terrorize a small desert town. Thick with good ole boy charm and whimsy its simply just plain great for families as survival is something that only happens with everyone's help. Michael Gross and Reba McIntire are standouts as Tea Partiers gone wild.
|Burt Gummer:||Just a few household chemicals in the proper proportions.|
|Valentine McKee:||That's how they git you. They're under the goddamned ground!|
|Valentine McKee:||This valley is just one long smorgasbord.|
|Burt Gummer:||Broke into the wrong goddam rec room didn't you, you bastards?!|
