Did You Know?


Tyler (Victor Browne) refers to the shriekers as "Jurassic Park wannabe bastards!" Tippett Studios not only created the CGI effects for the shriekers in Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996), but also worked on Jurassic Park (1993). See more »


Burt Gummer: Excuse me, ladies, but I really don't think every tourist who comes to town is on a need-to-know basis.
Nancy Sterngood: Well, why not? Thought you didn't like cover-ups, Burt.
Burt Gummer: I don't.
Nancy Sterngood: Well?
Burt Gummer: Well, what?
Nancy Sterngood: Well, either you believe in a free flow of information, or you don't.
Burt Gummer: It's not that simple. My point is, we have to maintain at least some control over...
Nancy Sterngood: ...over who knows what. And who decides that, Burt? I mean, come on, it's the same as a cover-up.

A GREAT Series for the Tremors Fan.
31 March 2003 | by photoweboramaSee all my reviews

Just a great series that is as much fun as the movie series.

For the avid Tremors fan, this series is a dream come true. Sure, the Graboids are what the films are about, but the real draw to the films is the characters. They do an excellent job of intertwining characters and plot lines from the films into the series. Past story lines are are strongly connected between the movies and the series, and all the "pieces fit together".

The series continues the story line of what happens next to the characters, and their lives. Not necessarily all Graboids, but life with a Graboid alway there.

You are drawn into the series, making you feel you are a character in the series, fully aware of the Graboid "routine".

If you haven't seen the films, go out and rent all three of them (and I mean all three). I doubt you can really appreciate the series unless you understand the past history of the characters of Perfection Valley. They throw in so many references from the films, that a lot of the dialog might seem like an inside joke with you on the outside.

Maybe they were not the best films. Maybe it is not the best series, but you have to love Michael Gross as Burt Gummer. Go Burt!
