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.

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 points to a Playboy centerfold on his wall and says that it was Miss October of 1974. The real Miss October 1974 was Ester Cordet, a brown-haired Panamanian, in contrast to the blond Helen Shaver who, in the film, is supposed to be the woman in the photo. The actual centerfold seen in the film is of Miss September of 1970, Debbie Ellison. See more »
When they have the Graboid captured in the jail cell and it gets sick/gives birth, Kate Reilly says that they are 'Hermaphrodites; when what she means is that they practice 'Asexual reproduction'. A Hermaphrodite is an entity with both male and female sexual organs, whereas asexual reproduction is when an organism produces offspring with a single parent. See more »

Earl! Earl, the bomb, how long did you set it for?
Oh, I... I don't know, I just punched in some numbers and threw it in the back of your truck!
You WHAT? That's 2,5 tons of high explosives, Earl!
You mean that's not enough?
Oh Burt, don't tell me it's not enough!
Not enou... Never mind, just run! Run!

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.
