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

User Reviews

great sequel is just as fun as the original
3 October 2001 | by (California) – See all my reviews

TREMORS 2 is a worthy follow-up to the original, released direct-to-video five years later. Kevin Bacon is sadly missed, but the always reliable Fred Ward is a welcome return, as is Michael Gross as gun-packing survivalist Burt Gummer, who comes complete with everything from bullets to C4. The action moves to Mexico this time around and introduces a love-interest for Ward, played by Helen Shaver. Christopher Gartin is a delight as Grady Hoover, a character who could have very easily been the kind of annoying sidekick we wished would get killed, but instead brings some comic relief to the film that is welcome and never annoying. The plot surprise halfway through is just that--surprising. You definitely don't see it coming, and it was a nice touch rather than just keep on with the same-old, same-old of Graboid attack after Graboid attack. The special effects are a little more gooey but not gross, and the language is kept to a minimum, making this one perfectly suited for the whole family even more so than the original one was. The same sense of fun found in the first is here in the second, and should be seen by anyone who wants a good time. Now if only Jay Ferguson's equally-enjoyable score would be released on CD.
