Storyline

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 Todd Baldridge

Amusing sequel with action,adventures,battles against Graboids and again with Fred Ward
10 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

This following begins in Petromay oil refinery (Mexico),there happen mysterious events,a giant killers predators are eating workers.After in the small village called Perfection is Earl(Fred Ward).He's hired for killing the horrible creatures,then he goes out towards Mexico along with a brave young named Hoover(Christopher Gartin).In the refinery they know to Kate(Helen Shaver),after comes Burt Gummer(Michael Gross)with a heavy weapons and explosives.They'll confront against an army of Graboids,the horrific and enormous worms that spontaneously appear from underground burrows.In this entry we learn the giant bugs are intelligent but they don't see neither ear.

This is an entertaining sequel with noisy action,grisly horror,thrilling and some humor with tongue in check.It's remarkable for special effects with computer generator recreation made by Phil Tippet studio and Animatronics by Tom Gudruff and Alec Gillis.The film displays habitual characteristic from the series : A lonely location surrounded by the fantastic worms called Graboids and a solitary bunch battling with the horrible creatures, the usual appearance of Burt Gummer,always played by a likable Michael Gross,besides all movies are produced and directed by Ron Underwood,SS Wilson and Brent Maddock.It's followed by several sequels: Tremors III Back to Perfection with Ariana Richards,Charlotte Stewart; Tremors IV the legend begins,that tells the origin with August Schellemberg,Sara Bostford,Billy Drago ; and TV series with Gladys Jimenez,Victor Brown,Marcia Strassman and as always Michael Gross.The motion picture-with an appropriate musical score by Jay Ferguson -is professionally directed by S.S. Wilson.It's recommended for terror-action buffs and hardcore series fans.
