Kevin Bacon Revisits ‘Tremors,’ Wants to Battle the Worms Once Again!

Tremors, Universal

Kevin Bacon, who got his start in Sean Cunningham’s Friday the 13th, is one of my all time favorite actors.

For one, he doesn’t take himself too serious – proof is in his hilarious Twitter avatar, and the viral video “Free the Bacon,” in which he campaigns for more male nudity in films. He’s also an incredible presence on screen – just wait until you see him in Cop Car, where he plays a shady police officer trying to track his police car down from two kids who stole it.

Many forget that Bacon’s career spans an astounding 35+ years, and one of the highlights is the 1990 dessert-based horror Tremors, a film that Bacon once said was the low point in his career.

In a new interview through the book “Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors”, Bacon is asked about Tremors, which leads to a series of incredible revelations.

With the 25th anniversary looming, Bacon has actually thought a lot about it stating that he resisted the film and was “pleasantly surprised” by it. The interesting bit came when he stated that he has “a real dream right now to reboot it, and to see the character 25 years down the line…to see what that guy may have become.”

“It’s a beautiful looking movie,” he added, “it really is a good film.”

Obviously, this is the 25th anniversary, so he couldn’t star in the forthcoming sequel, Tremors 5: Bloodlines, arriving this October through Universal Home Entertainment. But, maybe it performs well enough that big Universal takes a stab at bringing his character make in a reboot/sequel (you know, the new cool) in which his characters battles the worms once again?


“Universal doesn’t seem to be interested, so it’s moot.”

Watch the full interview below in which he also shares an incredible story about sleepwalking during the shoot in Lone Pines, CA.

    “Dessert-based”? LOL.

      Yes, for the most part, the writers of these online articles have embarrassingly poor writing skills. Virtually every sentence in this article contains at least one grammatical error, starting with the first one. My skills are on par with his, so where do I apply?

      Tremors in Candyland. I’d totally watch that. XD

        Hahaha, count me in!

    That’s charming. Everyone’s always assumed Bacon is ashamed of his genre roots, with F13th and Tremors, but it’s never really been the case. Bacon is proud of Friday the 13th, and doesn’t do conventions or the documentary stuff because he’s the one that’s actually like…you know…a BUSY FAMOUS ACTOR. Of course Joe Schmoe from part 5 is available and Bacon is not. Bacon talked about his death on Jay Leno a couple of years ago.

    Same with Paul Rudd. Same with Johnny Depp. These guys find their involvement in these movies awesome.

    YES! I would love to see a new Tremors with Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward back together as old guys.

  • Yakushiji Tenzen

    It’s got to have Fred Ward as well
