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 thirty-foot ... See full summary »
Based on the events in Perfection, Nevada, this story takes place on a different continent. When a small group of people take a vacation trip, they soon find themselves followed by a strange underground creature.
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
Earl finding out that Kate, a geologist to whom he's attracted, was once a centerfold he'd drooled over when both were younger but had never expected to meet. In the first film, Val is initially disappointed that geologist Rhonda doesn't look like a recent centerfold whom he's been drooling over, but is attracted to her anyway by the end. See more »
After Bert kills the Graboid with the chain hanging out of it's mouth, and he speaks with Grady over the radio, he signs off with "Over and out." As a survivalist, Bert should be aware that the correct sign off for a radio communication is simply "Out" and hat the use of "Over" implies a response is requested or expected. See more »
Tremors 2 is not a bad movie. It simply lacks whatever made the first movie so special. The story is okay but it could of used more work. Having Fred Ward and Michael Gross back helped this movie a lot. I was disappointed to find out this was released direct to video. It has the potential to be a big screen release and could have made more. Overall, Tremors 2: Aftershocks is a okay movie. If you've seen the first movie, you might as well see this one.
