Tremors 5 is in development, and weapons enthusiast Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) will be back to take on some more deadly graboids. This time adventure will base in South Africa and not in Perfection, Nevada.
Tremors is a 1990 American western monster film directed by Ron Underwood, written by Brent Maddock, S. S. Wilson and Underwood, and starring Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Finn Carter, Michael Gross, and Reba McEntire. It was released by Universal Studios and is the first installment of the Tremors franchise.
The news come from Bloody Disgusting, who says that the film not only includes the classic graboid creatures and the Ass Blasters, but a brand new creature will be introduced as well.
“The theatrical release of the original Tremors in 1990 combined suspense-filled action, sci-fi imagination and witty humor in the tale of a tiny Nevada town terrorized by giant man-eating worms known as Graboids. The Graboids eventually morphed into even more deadly creatures known as Ass Blasters. In this all-new adventure that travels halfway around the world to South Africa, the Graboids and the Ass Blasters are not only bigger and badder but Tremors 5 introduces an additional unexpected surprise that raises the stakes in the battle for survival.”
General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment said in a statement,
“The Tremors franchise has built a reputation for high intensity fun and suspense and this installment takes it to a whole new level.”
Stars Jamie Kennedy (Scream) as Burt’s new right hand man, tech-savvy Travis. Tremors 5 will be released on Blu-ray Hi-Def, DVD and Digital HD in 2016.
I absolutely loved Tremors when it came out in the 1990, It was the most scary movie for me at the time and after watching it all of its sequels and a prequel, I still crave for more. Today is weekend, I say let’s do a Marathon of Tremors!!
Fun fact of the original movie:
The sign at the beginning of the movie states that Perfection, Nevada was established in 1902. Tremors 4, however, takes place in 1889 when the town was named Rejection. Rejection may have been just a small independent community that become incorporated in 1902 and the name changed to Perfection.
I have also included the original 1990 trailer for the Tremors, Viewers who don’t know what Tremors is can have a look.
