Battling a life depression, Earl Bassett is offered a job as a mercenary to help a Mexican oil company with a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only ones with a new battle plan..
Perfection Valley, Nevada is a quaint little town. The inhabitants live peaceful, tranquil lives. Most of the time. Perfection is home to the Graboid, El Blanco. El Blanco is a 30-foot worm... See full summary »
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
In Earl's trailer is the cover of People magazine with Earl (Fred Ward): and Valentine (Kevin Bacon): on the cover. In the first movie they both discuss about how they'll make it to the cover of People magazine. See more »
Kate incorrectly refers to the Shriekers as "hermaphrodites". How the Shriekers reproduce would be considered a form of asexual reproduction. Indeed, Kate then says "they reproduce without having sex". The term 'hermaphrodite' refers to animals that have both sets of male and female reproductive organs. In the case of the Shriekers, in which they don't appear to have any such reproductive organs, they would be considered asexual. See more »
I was hoping that this would be as good as the first TREMORS movie. It pretty much was. The humor was still just as funny, the special effects have been elaborated, and Michale Gross's gun-welding character "burt" is still cool. Not as good as the first, but pretty close. I recommend seeing this.
