TREMORS (Theatrical Release USA 1990)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

—cult classic—ironically becomes a film one watches to the end and in later years will watch again. The movie has no cultural value, no depth of storyline and yet manages to survive a watch from beginning to end. Perhaps it is the small-town Hee-Haw comedy that keeps one watching or perhaps the very good casting of Kevin Bacon with Fred Ward, Finn Carter, Michael Gross, and Reba McEntire who work a certain country feel around the story that makes it seem like a bit of Americana. Watch for Special Guest Star Ariana Richards in this less than intellectual, but ‘somehow entertaining anyway’ movie.

Yes. It’s one of those films that one watches, wonders why they’re watching it, and just keeps watching anyway.
