Earl Bassett, now a washed-up ex-celebrity, is hired by a Mexican oil company to eradicate a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only one with a new battle plan.
The new sequel finds Burt Gummer, who's dying from Graboid poison, and his son Travis at a remote research station in Canada's Nunavut Territory, where they must go up against a new batch of Graboids to save Burt's life.

A small town gradually becomes aware of a strange creature which picks off people one by one. But what is this creature, and where is it? At the same time, a seismologist is working in the area, she detects _tremors_. The creature lives underground, and can 'pop up' without warning. Trapped in their town, the town-folk have no escape.Written by
The town set was built in about two months. See more »
When the tractor 'decoy' is deployed, there are only two Graboids left in the valley and both are clearly chasing the tractor (Nancy even states: "This one's going too!"), yet there seems to be a third Graboid still stalking Burt's compound outside the town. However, in an earlier scene it takes a Graboid 1.5 minutes to go from Walter's store to Burt's basement. The tractor scene starts at least 2 minutes (could be several minutes longer because there is a scene cut in the middle) after the last sighting of the creature near the compound (when it destroyed Burt's truck), so it had more than enough time to get back to the town. It makes perfect sense for it to return, by the way - it clearly realized that humans won't be able to escape without the truck so there is no need to stay put. See more »

The TBS broadcast replaces the profanity with milder words. The shot where Val and Earl find the driller's helmet and brain is shortened because of the violence. See more »
Loved the movie. How could you not? It has two lovably bumbling buddies, Val and Earl, played to perfection by Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward. It has a remarkably funny gun crazed survivalist couple played completely straight-faced by Michael Gross and Reba McEntire. It has a wonderfully batty bunch of "townsfolk," a winsome heroine and bad lot of underground drag racing worms looking to eat the characters mentioned above. The movie stands out from the "trapped and pursued" genre because it contains tongue-in-cheek humor, comedic escapes, inspired foreshadowing of doom and nutty monster mayhem. This is a delightful B monster movie that would best be watched with fellow funny movie buffs, popcorn and beer.
