In celebration of Tremors 30th anniversary, Universal Pictures is celebrating the occasion with a new 30-minute documentary that is available to watch for free on YouTube.
The documentary is titled Tremors: Making Perfection and it features the film’s star Kevin Bacon, Michael Gross, S.S. Wilson, Brent Maddock, Ron Underwood, Alec Gillis and more as they look back on the horror-comedy and they talk about the experiences they had making the film.
I remember watching Tremors in the theater for the first time when it was released in 1990. While the movie didn’t do very well at the box office, only pulling in $16 million, it was a super fun movie that ended up becoming a cult classic. I loved this movie when I was a kid and even now, I still enjoy watching it!
The story followed Val McKee (Bacon) and Earl Bassett (Fred Ward) who are “tired of their dull lives in the small desert town of Perfection, Nev. But just as the two try to skip town, they happen upon a series of mysterious deaths and a concerned seismologist (Finn Carter) studying unnatural readings below the ground. With the help of an eccentric couple (Reba McEntire, Michael Gross), the group fights for survival against giant, worm-like monsters hungry for human flesh.”
For those of you who are fans of Tremors, this short doc is a must watch!
