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.

Tremors is a cult classic. A film I have always enjoyed and hold in quite high regard.

Released yesterday (4th May 2015) was Tremors 25th Anniversary Special Edition.

If this is a new version of Tremors, with additional features, new transfer etc I would be interested in buying it. But I have not been able to find out anything about this release except for a picture of the front cover.

I have searched forums for hours, Blu Ray review sites, contacted Universal by email and multiple tweets (All ignored) and can find out NOTHING about this release.

It costs 16 on Amazon. There are people on Ebay selling it for up to 24. If i buy it, and its a re-release of the previous disc with a new cover and UV copy I would be very annoyed.

Do Universal not want people to buy this? Feeling quite frustrated about this Blu Ray.

***EDIT 19/5/15*** Apart from a new cover and an Ultraviolet Code this release is a re-pack of the previous version as per an email I finally received from Universal studios. Still a shoddy product in my mind - Does a UV code really justify a '25th anniversary special edition' label?

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...

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!

A delightful little film, an homage to all its b-movie predecessors. The duo of Fred Ward (Earl) and Kevin Bacon (Val)are some of the most likeable characters to have appeared on screen, starting out as Dumb and Dumber, but going on to save the day in true hero style.

The regulation plot: A few monsters have appeared near Perfection, your standard remote, cut-off town in hicksville. They are huge, so what have they been living off so far? Why have they never before been seen? How did they get there? As the film points out, dunno. That kind of stuff never gets explained in this sort of movie. It's up to our intrepid heroes, aided and abetted by the motley crew of local residents (with the usual guessing game of who will get eaten by the end of the film - place your bets ladies and gentlemen), to save the day - whilst allowing time to fall in love, of course.

I disagree with the reviewer who called the acting awful - it's perfect, in particular by the the central trio - FW, KB and the female lead, Finn Carter. Even in the ridiculous circumstances, you care what happens to them. OK, so some of our local residents are larger than life, but that's not the acting, that's b-movie.

The hilariously appalling SFX add to all the fun, as does the wonderful victory cry by Kevin Bacon "Can you fly you ****er, can you fly?".

A treasure and a treat. Put aside your intellect, take out your popcorn and enjoy.

A very cool film, a real gem of a film. This is no hollywood blockbuster with a big budget and top of the line special effects, but this is pure fun. This feels like a B horror film from bygone years but has plenty of humour in it too and doesn't take itself seriously.
This is actually a collectors edition and comes complete with production notes, trailer but best of all over 50 minutes making of with interviews with the director, producers and special effects teams. Which leads a good insight into the movies idea and special effects shots.
So if your a fan or yet to experience this great film I suggest you get this now, as this shows how films can be fun on a low budget!
