‘Tremors: Cold Day in Hell’ Review

Stars: Michael Gross, Jaime Kennedy, Tanya van Graan, Greg Kriek, Jay Anstey | Written by John Whelpley | Directed by Don Michael Paul

In this, the sixth film in the long-running Tremors franchise, Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy) are called to a research facility in the frozen tundra of the Canadian Arctic. They find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters investigating a series of deadly giant-worm attacks. Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is side-lined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom – but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid.

Ok, so we’re on the sixth film in the series and the second to feature Jaime Kennedy… Which is not a

Jamie Kennedy Talks Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell And Angry Comedy Club Crowds

From his early roles in the Wes Craven’s Scream franchise to his years of stand-up comedic work, Jamie Kennedy is certainly no stranger to making the stage and screen his own, and he’s back once again as the freewheeling son of Burt Gummer in the latest installment into the Tremors franchise – he was kind […]

Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell Review

Before you ask, yes – we still don’t have a sequel to [insert favorite one-off movie], but we *do* have five Tremors continuations. Each iteration pits survivalist Burt Gummer against advanced Graboid mythology in some way, including 2018’s latest Canadian basecamp defense. Where oh where could Don Michael Paul’s frosty Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell *possibly* tunnel to next? Exactly where the title suggests. A cold day in “Hell” (otherwise known as Canada).

How…inventive?

To be fair, what’s sacrificed by not introducing a new childishly-named Graboid evolution is swapped for Burt Gummer’s (Michael Gross) Ptsd freakouts and viral side effects from his digestive escape in Tremors. He’s called up North to the Nunavut province when Graboids attack ice-drilling researchers – and it’s here where he’s diagnosed with a (possibly) life-threatening affliction.

Good thing “wingman” Travis B. Welker (Jamie Kennedy) is there to impart his “father’s” wisdom

Hello, readers! Welcome back for another installment of one of our featured columns here at Daily Dead, Deadly Dialogue: A Conversation on Cinema, in which we catch up with notable folks from the horror and sci-fi genres—both in front of and behind the camera—and discuss the films that inspired them to become the artists they are today.

With this week’s home media release of Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, we thought this was the perfect opportunity to catch up with the film’s co-stars, Michael Gross and Jamie Kennedy, and hear what they had to say about what got them hooked on the idea of pursuing their dreams in Hollywood.

Jamie Kennedy: I think the desire came from watching John Hughes’ movies when I was a teenager, particularly The Breakfast Club. I still think The Breakfast Club was one of the greatest movies ever to me,

Movie Review – Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell (2018)

Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, 2018.

Directed by Don Michael Paul.

Starring Michael Gross, Jamie Kennedy, Tanya van Graan, Jamie-Lee Money, Rob van Vuuren, and Greg Kriek.

Synopsis:

Burt Gummer suspects that giant worms are being utilized as weapons at a research facility in Canada. He soon finds himself in a race against time to create an antidote from one of the creature’s venom to save his own life.

Back in 1990, a little monster film called Tremors opened up to little hype and low box-office returns, despite proving popular with critics. In the 28 years since then it has had a strong cult following that has helped propagate five sequels, a prequel, a television show, and even an attempt at a second miniseries that would have seen Kevin Bacon return to the franchise.

The appeal of Tremors has always lied in its old-fashioned premise of cowboys & Indians meets monster-hunting, perhaps

Interview: Michael Gross on His New Adventures in Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell and Keeping the Franchise Going

Arriving on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital platforms tomorrow is Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, which follows franchise stalwart Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son, Travis (Jamie Kennedy), to colder regions where recently unfrozen Graboids have been unearthed, causing all sorts of catastrophic problems up in the Great White North.

Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Gross for this latest Tremors, and he discussed Burt’s journey throughout the series, the joy of collaborating with Kennedy, and the possibility of another Tremors film in the future. We also spoke with Gross about the potential of a Tremors crossover too, since there was a TV series in the works, but now that the pilot hasn’t been picked up, it looks like Tremors will continue to be a film series for the foreseeable future.

Great to speak to you again, Michael, and congratulations on getting to come back for another Tremors.

Exclusive Interview – Actor Michael Gross Talks Returning to Tremors, Harry Anderson, and If We’ll Ever See a Family Ties Reunion

Red Stewart chats with actor Michael Gross

Michael Gross is an American actor who has been working in the film and television industry since the mid-70s. He is best known for his roles as Steven Keaton in the sitcom Family Ties and Burt Gummer in the Tremors film series.

Returning to the latter with this year’s sequel Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, Flickering Myth caught up with Mr. Gross to talk about his career. And I, in turn, had the privilege to conduct it.

You’ve been playing the character of Burt Gummer for a while now. The first Tremors came out in 1990, and it’s been almost 30 years since then. What’s the appeal in returning to Burt? I remember Bruce Willis saying how he liked returning to Die Hard as John McClane because of the connection to the past. Is that the same with you sir?

Tremors 6: A Cold Day in Hell is making its way to Blu-ray/DVD and digital platforms on May 1, and we have an exclusive clip to give fans a little taste of what's in store this time around. Burt Gummer, once again played by Michael Gross, is bringing his Graboid hunting skills to the arctic. He's also letting his son along for the ride, once again played again by Jamie Kennedy, as introduced in Tremors 5: Bloodlines.

The clip features Burt and his son traveling in a small plane over the remote arctic tundra in Canada.

Watch Burt Gummer Recap the Tremors Franchise in 3 Minutes
Tremors 6 is coming our way next month and Michael Gross, who has starred in every single movie in the Tremors franchise up to this point, is here to help you catch up, in case you forgot some of the events of previous installments. His character, Burt Gummer, shows up in a new video to take a look back at the movies, starting with the original Tremors, leading up to Tremors 5 in a very brief, but surprisingly thorough, look back at the history of the Graboids.

Michael Gross brings us the video in character as Burt Gummer, setting up Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, which arrives on May 1. This serves as a reminder of how crazy the franchise has managed to become over the years. Especially after the first two movies. In the video, we're reminded of the rather ridiculous plot point in 2001's Tremors 3: Back to Perfection that
