‘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

Interview: Michael Gross Discusses All Things Tremors, Gummer And Injuries!

There’s no mistaking the man in the baseball cap (apparently he’s switched teams) – it’s the man with the firepower to burn and all the hatred in the world for those damn graboids!

Watch The Trailer For The Unaired Tremors TV Pilot

A trailer has arrived for the unaired Tremors TV pilot. The original Tremors from 1990 starred Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward as two handymen who had to lead a group of survivors in a desert town to safety, following an attack by underground worms dubbed Graboids. While not a huge hit in cinemas, it soon became a cult classic thanks to video and DVD. Bacon opted out of Tremors 2 in 1996, with Ward and co-star Michael Gross returning to fight more Graboids in an oil field.

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

Tremors 7 Discussions Have Begun, May Feature Underwater Graboids

Tremors star Michael Gross has confirmed discussions about a possible seventh movie have already begun. Gross has been with the franchise from the very beginning, playing eccentric survivalist Burt Gummer. Burt was a supporting character in the first two entries, but once Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward moved on, he was promoted to lead for every subsequent entry. Gummer was also the lead character of Syfy’s short-lived Tremors series back in 2003, while Gross played Burt’s great-grandfather in prequel Tremors 4: The Legend Begins.

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.

Syfy passes on the Tremors series starring Kevin Bacon

If you were looking forward to seeing the return of Kevin Bacon’s Valentine McKee in the TV sequel to Tremors, then we have some bad news for you as Bacon has revealed on social media that Syfy has opted against picking up the pilot to series.

“[I’m] sad to report that my dream of revisiting the world of Perfection will not become a reality,” said Bacon. “Although we made a fantastic pilot (Imho) the network has decided not to move forward. Thanks to our killer cast and everyone behind the scenes who worked so hard. And always keep one eye out for Graboids!”

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?
