If I recall correctly, I was living in Jacksonville, FL and about 18 years old when the very first Tremors movie cam out. I thought it was one of the best- next to the Alien and Terminator movies. It had nightmarish monsters that didn't go away, no matter how long you waited them out. The movie made me laugh, jump and cringe. Number two was pretty good too but after that one...
Can number six actually be something worth watching? Here's my review of Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell.
So Bert is back. He's as old as a scarecrow but as feisty as a desert rattler. He thinks he should be above tax paying, after saving the world several times, both past and future! But the IRS wants blood. He spends most of his time waiting them out and chasing them off, until he's contacted by a geological group in the Canada Arctic. They've been attacked by graboids in the ice! Since this is what he lives for, he and his son heads out!
The problem is, the people they join don't seem to know what's going on. Only Val, the daughter of our original Val (Kevin Bacon character) seems to know. Together, with a rag tag crew, they fight to rid Canada of the ancient, worm-like creatures.
So what did I like about it? In a way, they stuck to the original movie attacks, but they also made th attacks much longer than necessary. The whole point of their snake appendages was that they pulled the victim inside. Over and Done in a minute, yeah? Nope. One scene had one shaking a female about like the first attack in Jaws. Another with a guy who hid inside a truck. It made no sense. Another thing I thought was jenky was Burt's inner-connection. I won't go into detail to prevent SPOILERS but it made me think of Friday the 13th when Tina Shepard knew Jason intimately.
Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell is funny, like all the others and filled with lots of action. It is, of course, still B-movie. It's cheesy, it's silly but th FX are so much better than the last few. Check it out- playing on Netflix. Cheers!
