Still fun!!!!!!!!, 22 December 2002
Author: sketchy (j6524@hotmail.com) from pembroke, massachusetts.

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.
