At the beginning of the 90s, horror and science fiction added an unexpected title, which this January 19 celebrates its 33 years of being released. To date, this movie has seen six sequels, two TV series, but one of them was cancelled. The film in question is none other than tremors.
Directed by Ron Underwood (City Slickers), this film takes us to a remote settlement in the Nevada desert called Perfection. This quiet place begins to register strange earthquakes, so an expert on the subject decides to investigate the area. In parallel we meet two great friends Valentine “Val” Mckee from Kevin Bacon and Earl Basset of the deceased Fred Ward.
Fed up with not getting jobs, these friends decide to walk away from Perfection. On the way to the city they find different people dead in strange circumstances, so they decide to return to see what is happening. Neither Val, Earl nor earthquake expert Rhonda LeBeck (Finn Carter) would ever have imagined that what causes earthquakes and deaths are worms that move underground. These ancient creatures, later baptized as Graboids, put the entire town in check, but they do not have the cunning of Val and Earl.
The movie managed to mix horror and science fiction, also adding humor to the equation. Tremors received positive reviews, which highlighted both the story and the work of its cast.
-Originally the name was Land Sharksbut faced with the possibility of falling into comparisons with Jaws and one of its sequels, the writers changed the name, that’s how they got to tremors.
-The budget was $10 million dollars and at the box office it only managed to raise just over $11 million. Like many titles of that time, it achieved the greatest success thanks to its release on vhs and on cable channels. Over the years, Tremors has earned cult film status.
-At the time of filming Tremors, Kevin Bacon was going through a job crisis. When the project came into his hands, he accepted without thinking. He needed the money, especially since his partner, actress Kyra Sedgwick, was expecting her first child.
The Graboids were created in different sizes for the different shots that required it. The special effects team saw the creature but didn’t think the audience would be intimidated. The experts began to give different additions to the worm, such as the tentacles with their own mouths to hold the victims and much better, the slime in the jaws so that they also look unpleasant.
-The poster used in the promotion of the film was assembled with one of the first sketches of the worms, where they had teeth and did not yet have tentacles.
-When Val and Earl first encounter the creatures, the Graboid hunting them surfaces and uses the same scream as the Graboid. CityHunter being injured by Harrigan with the smart disc in predator 2.
