Trivia

Goofs

Col. Sherman tells Deputy Barnes that she'll be "...filing death certificates for the whole county!" Alaska does not have counties, it has boroughs. There are eighteen boroughs, and the land that is outside those is called the "Unorganized Borough" and contains more than half of the state's land but only 13% of the population. The Unorganized Borough has no government and is larger than any other US state. See more »

Quotes

Claire: Would you look at yourselves? A truck driver, a DJ, a retired colonel, and a hillbilly.
Haas: Hey, who you calling a hillbilly?
Claire: Haas, you made your own fur jacket.

"Tremors" comes to Alaska ..............
15 September 2009 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Right away you will notice some similarities between "Wyvern" and "Tremors". Of course the monsters differ greatly, flying serpent and sand worms. Some things that are the same would be, trapped and isolated town, resourcefulness of the locals to defeat the predator, and most importantly, both movies take the time to develop characters. The Wyvern is depicted well, and since there are no night scenes, you get to see it often. It's also nice to not have to see the stereotypes you get in a lot of Sci-fi channel movies. There are no pseudo scientists, no gratuitous love interests, no animals disappearing (except perhaps for a moose in a hot tub), just plain folks fighting a winged dragon. Good entertainment. - MERK
