Who remembers the movie Tremors?
If you weren’t old enough to see Tremors in theaters, I can personally guarantee that you saw it on TBS or TNT during a lazy Sunday afternoon edited for television movie binge session.
Well the idea of Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Michael Gross, and a young Reba McEntire on the run from giant underground killer worms, or Gravoids, was such a hit that the original 1990 feature sparked one of the greatest straight to video franchises in history. I have to mention the “straight to video” part because none of the subsequent installments made it to the theater. And thanks to the folks at Netflix, all of the Tremors movies are available for streaming right now!
This means that you can go to Netflix as you’re reading this piece and start viewing the classic Tremors, the brilliantly titled Tremors 2: Aftershocks, Tremors 3: Back To Perfection (the name says it all), the prequel Tremors 4: The Legend Begins, Tremors 5: Bloodlines, and Tremors 6: A Cold In Hell… the post-apocalyptic one… because why the hell not?
I’d like to personally thank those at Bloody-Disgusting.com for bringing this to my attention.
Wait… what are you still doing reading this? Get to Netflix and get your binge on!
