Arrow Video clearly felt that restoring Tremors to 4K was a good guess, and I have the feeling that it will be one of their most successful titles, even though it has already been released in several editions on Blu-ray.
Giant underground worms infect a remote city in Nevada where everyone who lives there has to fight to survive.
In the small isolated town of Perfection, in the desert, events are in full swing: Strange unexplained vibrations are recorded on the seismologist’s meters, people suddenly disappear when they are outside, and two garbage collectors – Valentine (Kevin Bacon) and Earl (Fred Ward) – decide to leave in search of greener pastures, but one day they decide to leave too late because they cannot leave the valley without having experienced one disaster after another. It turns out that on the planet Arrakis, in the Dune below the valley and towards the City of Perfection, giant underground worms the size of spiny worms appear, and when they stick out their huge heads, they are full of tentacles and hungry for anything that moves. Valentine and Count – and a handful of perfect men (including a naive but sympathetic seismologist) – must plan a joint battle with the grabbos under the desert floor before the creatures fill their bellies with fresh meat.
Tremors is a true cult classic and one of those films I saw at the age of 11 (with arachnophobia!) at a slumber party and which never grow old thanks to its timeless appeal and excellent craftsmanship. It’s such a simple yet winning concept, and it’s full of beautiful performances by the most perfect and perfect actors one could wish for. I’ve seen it countless times and introduced the series to my 7-year-old son (who loves it), yet it’s one of the most watched films in my collection. Ron Underwood directed this film directly from film school, and he recorded it from a clever CC script. Wilson and Brent Maddock, who also wrote Short Circuit. There followed six sequels to the film, and a 13-part series (which is underestimated). But he’s the first to stand the test of time.
Arrow Video clearly felt that restoring Tremors to 4K was a good guess, and I have the feeling that it will be one of their most successful titles, even though it has already been released in several editions on Blu-ray. Arrow has again done its best to present the title in a beautifully designed and lovingly produced edition, with hours of bonus features, including several documentaries filmed with actors Kevin Bacon (who seems a bit boring in his interviews), Ariana Richards, Michael Gross, and even Jamie Kennedy, who participated in some of the sequels, as well as director Underwood, screenwriters, and others. The two-disc edition contains a new commentary, numerous trailers (including the entire series), behind-the-scenes reports, deleted scenes and enough to keep people busy for a while. The hard case contains a double-sided folding poster, a diagram of the anatomy of a tomboy and a fake coupon for Chang’s groceries. Two versions were published simultaneously: Blu-ray and 4K standard.
