Storyline

When an army of Graboids - giant, carnivorous underground worms - threaten the Petromaya oil refinery in Mexico, its owners call on Earl Bassett, who once helped kill four of the creatures in Perfection, Nevada. Having squandered the money that came from his resulting celebrity status, Earl is convinced by the $50,000-a-head bounty offered, as well as the enthusiasm of admirer Grady Hoover, who becomes his partner. At Petromaya, Earl and Grady meet geologist Kate Reilly, and begin Graboid hunting, tricking several Graboids into swallowing bomb-rigged, remote-controlled cars. When they find they're facing a lot more Graboids than they ever expected, Earl calls his friend Burt Gummer, a survivalist who arrives well-stocked with weapons. Written by Todd Baldridge

fun sequel
3 October 2002 | by (WI) – See all my reviews

It's a sequel so almost by definition is inferior. It does keep in the same spirit as the first, but doesn't live up to the original. Overall however it was a fun movie with a few twists and definately worth checking out. I consider the original Tremors a classic, so my expectations were high. If you've seen the first ( I know you had to love it) then check this one out, it's worth seeing.
