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.

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
On the wall of Earl's home we see that he and Val did end up in both People and National Geographic magazine (among others). Also, the photo used for People is the one that Rhonda took of Val and Earl at the end of the movie. In the first movie they both discuss about how they'll make it to the cover of People magazine or National Geographic. See more »
Near the end of the movie when Earl throws the bomb into the truck, Burt has everyone run and take cover. He tells them to get down and cover their ears. He then ducks down in the ditch and the shot changes to Grady standing up waiting for the explosion.
When the explosion occurs, we see Burt with orange ear plugs in his ears. The ear plugs were not visible around his neck when he got into the ditch and he did not have time to pull them out and put them in before the explosion. After the blast, the ear plugs are visible hanging around his neck. See more »
Recently shown on the Horror Channel in the UK. And as a fan of the classic original I thought I would give the sequel a view
Have to say I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. The practical and computer effects were half decent considering how small the budget was. $4m according to IMDb
Plenty of mentions to the original as well to tie it nicely with the first film. Chris Gartin is pretty poor as the Kevin Bacon replacement in my opinion but let's be honest it's a Tremors movie, no one is in it to win a Oscar. It's light hearted comedy horror that knows what is is.
If you enjoyed the 1st film then you should enjoy this one.
