SynopsisOur underground monster-killing heros from the original Tremors have split up. Soured that everyone else profited from Graboids-mania, Fred Ward "re-enlists" to battle a new breed of Mexican Graboids. This sequal pokes so much fun at its original plot, exaggerated characters, cheap exposions, and Graboid gore. Tremors I is a prequesite.
The Tremors return to the screen in this sequel, but sadly to the small screen. Being a video release does not make this a bad movie, but it surely cannot live up to the original’s awesome special effects work and atmospheric horror, or the fun and humor of it.
Fred Ward returns as Earl Basset who is called upon to join Christopher Gartin and Michael Gross again to exterminate the “graboids” in Mexico to protect the assets of an oil refinery company. Christopher Gartin as the annoying Grady is a weak replacement for Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward seems a little worn out for this film, but I guess that helps his reluctant character. Michael Gross is just as gun-crazy as he was in the first movie, and then some. He brings a military arsenal packed into a giant army truck with him. Let the explosions begin. While Burt Gummer and Earl & Grady are split up exterminating the graboids efficiently, something happens to them and they change form to everyone’s surprise. The great thing about this is that it cannot possibly be a rehash of the story at all since the characters are completely unprepared for the “shriekers”.
