Starting off as a film in which I am sure no one in their right minds thought would become a multi-film franchise, Tremors has lived on where others have failed to. That being said, that does not mean that Tremors is still kicking because it is good. To the contrary, it actually has churned out bad film after bad film. And yet here we are with film number six. Another direct to video release. I guess that they make enough money to rationalize making another…

Travis (played by Jamie Kennedy) and his father Burt Gummer (played by Michael Gross) still find themselves waging a war against the Graboids. This time they are traveling to Canada in order to investigate a reputed series of giant worm attacks. They get to a remote research facility in the Arctic and Burt is frightened to find out that he believes the Graboids are now weaponized. Before he can convince the others of this he is struck down by Graboid venom.

That leaves him with only 48 hours to find the antidote or he will die. To create the antidote they are going to somehow get their hands on some fresh venom. How are they possibly going to do that? Milk a Graboid? Seems like an impossible act.

A mixture of comedy, action and horror, Tremors can be firmly slotted into the B movie category. Lots of the action and acting is rather laughable. I also don’t know why director Don Michael Paul insisted on making everything so shakey. When it wasn’t shakey there were loads of up tight close ups for my eyes to adjust to. The combo gave me a little bit of headache after a while. If you enjoyed the others the formula is continued here, so I can’t see why you wouldn’t like this one.
