51T063EZP8L tremors-2-aftershocks 11349083_gal Tremors-image-tremors-36471358-800-611

1996

1-They waited too long to crank this one out.

2-Longish hair makes Fred Ward look like Shemp from the three stooges.

3-Despite chewing through metal the Shriekers aren’t nearly as scary as the Graboids

4-I really missed Kevin Bacon’s character.

5-Chris Gartin’s character was very forgettable.

6-After seeing this film I can’t go past a stack of metal barrels without looking to see if they are moving.

7-They sure made good use of remote controlled cars

8-As always thank goodness Michael Gross was in this one.

9-I love the scene where they think they are going to hide in a building and it was just a front side of a building.

10-I so wish there was a Graboid arcade game like the one they had a cabinet for.

 

This film was supposed to be a fairly big budget affair filmed in Australia in 1993, Instead the budget was slashed greatly, no Australia, it was film in early 1994 but cam out as a direct to video release in 1996.

The first film was so great that the next film in the series would have trouble living up to expectations and that’s what happened here. The film tries and has some moments, but overall it’s fair at best. It does introduce the Shreikers and it was good to Fred Ward again. After this one Michael Gross (and his ancestor in the 4th film) would become the main focus.

I have watched far too many horror and sc-fi shows in my life. Now I feel the need to share this wealth of knowledge and make others suffer.

    Sequels are such a poor gamble for success. 😦
