The appeal of TREMORS has always baffled me. Not that I dislike the film; it will always hold a place in my monster-loving heart. But rather, I’ve always wondered why the film has such a cult following. I had always thought of it as a slightly campy Kevin Bacon vehicle with no real distinctive features, but on closer inspection I was wrong. TREMORS does set itself aside from the rest of the creature features of its era, and in doing so created a lasting legacy for those darn Graboids.
