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
Earl points to a Playboy centerfold on his wall and says that it was Miss October of 1974. The real Miss October 1974 was Ester Cordet, a brown-haired Panamanian, in contrast to the blond Helen Shaver who, in the film, is supposed to be the woman in the photo. The actual centerfold seen in the film is of Miss September of 1970, Debbie Ellison. See more »
When Earl and Grady notice the graboid running away from them, the seismographic monitor shows the readout from Burt's truck arriving at the refinery in reverse. This is noticeable due to the fact that the monitor is on the floor of the truck, yet there is daylight from a window frame behind it. Also, the object that's supposed to distinguish their truck from the monster is normally a solid square, in this shot it's an outline; just like the monitor in the refinery office. See more »
[Grady and Earl are discussing what they're gonna do with their money in the back of Earl's truck]
I'm thinking big. I'm thinking theme park. Yeah, "Grady Hoover's World of Natural Wonders."
[the wind blows Grady's umbrella off the truck and jumps onto the ground to retrieve it]
Or maybe Monster World, or Monster Land, or Worm World.
How 'bout Loony World. Seems to fit. Get off the ground!

What I don't understand about Tremors 2: Aftershocks, is why it wasn't released into theatres. It has a great script, great cast, and interesting premise with these new graboids. Instead of these graboids hearing their prey, they can see it using infra-red vision. Anyway, Aftershocks is a great sequel that should of been in theatres. 9/10
