Tremors – A Cold Day In Hell: Blu-ray Review











The Movie:

Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy) find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters when they head to Canada to investigate a series of deadly giant worm attacks. Arriving at a remote research facility in the arctic tundra, Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is sidelined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom — but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid!

The Tremors franchise is one of my favorites. Not because they are great movies (besides the 1st and 2nd one) but mainly for the simple fact that they are so absurdly fun to watch. The idea of huge underground creatures is really cool and throw in the aspect of them being able to find victims by sound and it makes for some great moments. As the franchise went on the quality started to go down more and more but the creativity of the creatures always stood out to me. That leads us to this entry. It’s still super cheesy and the acting isn’t anything to be excited about but the evolution of the Graboid thus far and the store that plays out is very entertaining to watch. They could literally make 10 more of these (and they probably will) and I would still find some sort of enjoyable quality in them. I will admit that these films aren’t for everyone but if you’re in the mood for an outlandish and not so serious creature feature then this will be right up your alley. 6/10
