Heeheehee. This movie exemplifies the zen of badflique
. Fred Ward
is the other guy. The monsters in question are named graboids
just before the gent that names them gets graboided
. Perhaps the best thing about this flick
is that the sequel
is even watchable! In the sequel Tremors II: Aftershocks
a Mexican oil company starts losing men and gear near a drilling base in the Mexican center. Finally, enough data is gathered to show that the culprit
s are...you guessed it...graboid
s! They send a rep. north to hire Fred Ward
and another, younger handy man to take care of 'em. The resultant silliness is an excellent video cure for a rainy day
Favorite line from the second film: Ward and protege are eating lunch on a large boulder. A portable radio plays Mexican music nearby. Suddenly there is a violent shaking and rumbling; all of a sudden, the radio gets really muffled and then fades away entirely along with the rumbling.
Ward: You left the radio on the ground?
Young Guy: I...forgot.
On another note, the graboids resemble my mental image of EDB more than anything else I've come across...
