      Anton Bitel Little White Lies Propelled by impressive practical effects, this is an oater-inflected monster movie which fully embraces its own icky absurdity and literally low culture – but the film’s hidden weapon is a strong focus on characterisation. Jul 4, 2022 Full Review Ty Burr Entertainment Weekly Tremors is the Slacker of monster movies: bemused, improvisatory, willfully low-key. Rated: B+ Jan 22, 2020 Full Review Michael Wilmington Los Angeles Times It's a zippy melodrama for small-town America and small-towners at heart: well-executed kitsch for audiences that will still be amused at the notion that the bugs are getting so big, they'll drag us all down. Jan 22, 2020 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) For fans of the genre, Tremors is a little late Christmas gift, but very well received. [Full review in Spanish] Nov 11, 2022 Full Review Trace Thurman Horror Queers Podcast You can just see the "Fun for the whole family!" review blurb on the VHS box at your local video store. And it is just that: a perfect, fun-for-the-whole-family movie about subterranean killer worms. Rated: 5/5 Sep 11, 2022 Full Review Joe Lipsett Horror Queers Podcast Tremors remain a goofy delight. Filled with practical Graboid effects, exciting setpieces and a not so subtle queer romance at its center, the 90s creature feature holds up Sep 5, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jonathan Love that movie. Much better in the theater. Thank you for playing it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/04/21 Full Review justice I absolutely love the fact that I watched such a classic in theaters!! It’s great that they do play backs with old movies!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/01/21 Full Review Teddy B Creatively and lovingly devoted to its B-movie personality, 'Tremors' is an endearing cult classic even if it pulls too much inspiration from other films at times... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Craig B With a cheeky nod and wink to classic 50s/60s monster movies, this is a great, fun horror comedy movie which doesn't take itself too seriously. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/09/24 Full Review Cork B Great comedic monster flick. There are some gruesome scenes not for the little ones, but everything about this film is just well done from the cinematography to the smart writing. The acting is ok, Ward and Bacon maybe ham it up a bit too much, but the plotline is supposed to be fantastical. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/09/24 Full Review James B Absolutely the best horror comedy undoubtedly no questioning. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Read all reviews
