THE PLOT:

In the quiet and peace town of Perfection, nothing happens. Nothing, but nothing is about to turn into something really fast when strange underground creatures start devouring the people of the town of Perfection. Val and Earl are the ones that discover these underground Predators and name them Graboids.

But now that they named them, they have to escape them, for when a Predator is lurking literally under your feet, then how can you escape?

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Now let's see, where to start? Kevin Bacon, let's start with Kevin, who started is career in the first Friday The 13th flick. But got famous in chick flicks like FOOTLOOSE. But belts out a great performance as Val. In fact, the whole cast does a great job. Perfection is a place I'd like to move to, even with Graboids. Speaking of Graboids, I love the Graboids. Those are weird look worm monsters that makes the worm monsters in Dune look like crap. My favorite character is the gun loving conspiracy sculling Burt Gummer. Who returns in the first two sequels and the short lived TV show on the Sci-Fi Channel. That's right, TV series. The Grabiods grab a hold of our hearts and I say 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

This is got to be some kind of record, three in a row. Yes, I totally agree with Zedd on Tremors as well and everything he said. It does have some minor character issues, but nothing that can really hurt it. 9 STARS TOO.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (The story works.)
+ CHARACTERS (Love the characters.)
+ ACTING (The acting is great.)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (The Graboid effects are cool.)
+ HUMOR (I love the humor.)

AND FINALLY...

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

- MINOR CHARACTER ISSUES (Some of the minor characters got annoying at times.)
