From Amazon.co.uk

Tremors didn't actually break any new ground (even though its tunneling worm monsters certainly did), but it revved up the classic monster-movie formulas of the 1950s with such energetic enthusiasm and humour that it made everything old seem new again. It's also got a cast full of enjoyable actors who clearly had a lot of fun making the film, and director Ron Underwood strikes just the right balance of comedy and terror as a band of small-town rednecks battles a lot of really nasty-looking giant worms. The special effects are great, the one-liners fly fast and furious between heroes Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward (and yes, that's country star Reba McEntire packin' awesome firepower), and it's all done with the kind of flair one rarely associates with goofy monster flicks like this. Followed by a direct-to-video sequel (Tremors: Aftershocks), this horror thriller was given the deluxe treatment for its DVD release. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaws on land 7 April 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Quite simply a classic.
A horror comedy master class. If you enjoyed shawn of the dead then you will love this, very much the definition of horror comedy.
It could of gone horribly wrong when a group of executives got together and decided to do a land based version of Jaws, but the idea is saved by a fantastic script, awsome acting and jaw busting effects, well they were then, but in an industry over populated by cringe worthy computer effects, Tremors hold its own beautify with some plush modle effects.
Set in the fictional town of Perfection, nevada, the film follows a day in the life of two handy men (Fred Ward and Kevin Bacon) eaking out an existance in the bad lands of America, until they decide they have had enough and head for the nearest city, only to find that something horrible is eating its way through every one they've known, and is eyeing up the residence of Perfection valley for afters, their only hope is to make a stand with the help of Burt Gummer, a gun crazed militaria fanatic and the owner of the local shop, played by John Carpenter staple Victor Wong (Big Trouble in Little China, Prince of Darkness).
seriously if you like horror and enjoy a laugh, get this one on your shelf.

When I was a kid Tremors came on TV and my mum lept at the chance to show my sister and I one of her favourite films. We sat, terrorized, waiting for the worms that my mum had fore-warned us were about to burst through the earth and start eating people.
The terror wore off almost instantly as the first worm appeared, big and rubbery, but the laughter and pure enjoyment I get from watching this film has never worn off.
The perfectly cast Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward lead the cast as the handy-men Val and Earl, who become entangled in the feeding antics of the giant 'graboids', the film goes on from there.
A further 3 films are evidence to the popularity of the original, although I feel that they are best ignored.
If you haven't watched this film, watch it.
If you don't own it, buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Class 5 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
This is absolute Classic B movie action. It's just fantastic, it has everything that it should have, hammy acting, silly story, silly monsters, slightly dodgy effects... but then it has more, some of the creature effects are actually really really good, and some of the actin gis actually excellent character acting. So long as you have a sense of humour you can not go wrong with this film or any in the series (four and a tv series so far) get it and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremors! 11 Oct 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Tremors has got to be one of the best films in the style of 1950's horror... EVER!
Set in the isolated desert town of Perfection, the total population of 14 soon start to drop in numbers as Graboids pick them off one by one. It's a fight for survival which has some great scenes of action and laughter.
The reason that I like this movie is because it isn't exactly the same as other horror/sci-fi movies. We've all seen 1001 movies where a spaceship disappears into deep space and finds aliens... again! They just start to get boring, because lets face it, once you've seen one, you've seen most of them! So this movie offers something new. Monsters (known as Graboids) that are under the ground. If you can imagine Jaws, but on the land, you're getting close! The setting for the movie is also amazing! Desert floors with steep mountains, everything is dry rather than movies such as Aliens (which I love and am not picking on!)which are alot more dark and wert. So it's a completely new movie idea, which doesn't fail to deliver the goods!
Well worth checking out! And for more information, you can visit our fan-site for these movies at [...]

Val and Earl are two handy men in a small desert community. They do all the nasty work in the town of 'Perfection'. They decide that they have had enough of life in Perfection and try to leave. Something stops them! It would be a crime to give anymore away. I love the characters in this film, the gun toting trigger happy couple who have an arsenal in their cellar, the sassy seismologist that turns up to check out some strange underground activity, the way that Val and Earl use paper scissors stones to decide everything from who's going to make breakfast to who is going to risk their lives and save the day. The plot is very thin, but this is a 'B' monster movie and it all goes to prove that you do not need famous actors and a massive budget to make a cracking film.

2.0 out of 5 stars shame about the transfer... 15 Feb 2011
Format:Blu-ray
i like this movie. it's kind of a classic for me. shame about the crap picture quality of the blu ray. i think heavy amounts of edge enhancement where applied to the image giving it a very artificial look. a shame...

5.0 out of 5 stars If the Graboids don't get him, I probably will! 20 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Amazingly funny, scary and fun to watch. I bought the dvd version this week and have already watched it four times. It never gets old, never gets dull and is always funny. I used to be scared to tread on anything softer than concrete after watching this film for the first time when I was younger. Anyway the real proof of the film is in the watching and this is a must see. Basically imagine smaller versions of the worms of arakis [Dune] but more aggressive and definitely more fragrant [in a bad way]. Then imagine rednecks in a tiny little town that no one has ever heard of, then add a bunch of guns, axes and a few of the aforementioned graboids and you've got a really kick ass film packed with amusing one liners and terrificly inane characters!
