When an army of Graboids - giant, carnivorous underground worms - threaten the Petromaya oil refinery in Mexico, its owners call on Earl Bassett, who once helped kill four of the creatures in Perfection, Nevada. Having squandered the money that came from his resulting celebrity status, Earl is convinced by the 50,000-a-head bounty offered, as well as the enthusiasm of admirer Grady Hoover, who becomes his partner. At Petromaya, Earl and Grady meet geologist Kate Reilly, and begin Graboid hunting, tricking several Graboids into swallowing bomb-rigged, remote-controlled cars. When they find theyre facing a lot more Graboids than they ever expected, Earl calls his friend Burt Gummer, a survivalist who arrives well-stocked with weapons.

We have taken some photos of "Tremors II: Aftershocks". They represent actual movie quality.
Tremors 2: Aftershocks is just as good as the oringal, with one twist. The "graboids" are now above ground and hunt by seeing body heat. Earl and Burt are reunited in this movie. It just isn't a "Tremors" movie without that Burt with his love of weapons and high explosives. One of my favorite lines is "Val Married a good woman. Why would he want to die?!"
Fred Ward returns as handyman Earl Bassett, and has just been hired to kill another batch of graboids in a Mexican oil refinery. Everything runs smoothly, until they mutate. Direct-to-video sequel is much better than you might think, with good special effects, good performances (nice chemistry between Ward and Helen Shaver), and a good sense of mindless fun. It takes too long to actually get going (A good 60 minutes before the mutation occurs) but once it does, the last half-hour approaches the same exciting thrills and big laughs the original generated. *** 1/2 out of *****
This is the best sequel ever made. In the beginning, it explains where everyone went and is constantly referring back to the original Tremors. Unlike most sequels, the characters don't just 'drop' inexplicably out of the film. Michael Gross gives an especially great performance, and its hilarious how he blames his marraige problems on the fall of the soviet union. This is a truly worthy sequel.
This was an awsome movie with lots of laughs and plenty of action, just like the first Tremors. The characters are better and Burt and Earl are back! If you are looking for a great action flick for a good price than buy Tremors 2: Aftershocks
Spoilers herein.The film industry has a significant problem in engineering sequels. Even amodest hit compels a sequel, the only question being the budget. BrentMaddock/SS Wilson are no dummies, and presumably stay current with varioustheories of how to handle the problem. The original had Frank Herbert'sworms, which were the source of all insight, and a bunch of rednecks intenton killing them. The result wasn't particularly clever, but did succeed inpoking fun at the type of bozo who watches these movies.So how to handle the sequel: you have the monster evolve of course, but nowyou can also evolve in who you make fun of. Now you can make fun of your ownoriginal as well as your audience and any eggheads out there. And that's allthat happens here. Fortunately, the effort matches the slightness of thebudget, unlike the grotesque `Wild Wild West.'Ted's Evaluation -- 1 of 4: You can find something better to do with thispart of your life.
Well this was a truly good try at making the sequel better than theoriginal, but that is very very rare, but anyway....It was good to see Earl Basset in it again, played by Fred Ward.But allthisneeded to be a huge success was the presence of Kevin Bacon,the story linewas at first a repeat of the first film but then the worms transformedintosomething completely different.I prefer Tremors the original, but this film has its own stand, and it wasa galant effort to make it better.I give this a 6 out of 10, only because I had Aftershocks after I watchedit!!! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
This review is from: Tremors 2: Aftershocks (DVD) This movie was even funnier than the first. I love how they brought back characters from the first movie and continued storylines. Definitely recommended, but you need to make sure you see the first movie before this one. :)I'd stop after this one though, Tremors 3 was pretty bad.
Now like any other sequels this is not as good as the first but thatdosn't mean its bad in fact its great. In Tremors 2 a Mexican guy findsearl to get ride of those worms as they find out there back!!!! So hestarts to go Graboid hunting with another guy and the guy from thefirst Burt. As they join together they kick some Graboid ass!!! Butthere's a twist, the worms have turned. Instead of big giant man eatingworms they have somehow turned smaller but still carn't see and stillman eating killers. In the end they get bombs from Burts truck andblows up the warehouse. In the end everyone survives from the wormsexcept two people. So I think this movie is good but just not as goodas the first. Now all I have to do is to watch Tremors 3 and Tremors 4.Thankyou for reading my review and please click like for my reviewinstead of dislike.
This is a very bad sequel to Tremors, which was an artful, beautifullycrafted film.It lacks character development, the script is plodding, and, worst of all,the Fred Ward character from the previous film has disappeared, only to bereplaced by a bitter hippy. One of the great things about the originalTremors was the ensemble acting. In Tremors II, there is no chemistrybetween the characters whatsoever.
great second better than the first i bought it and loved it great worms how the worms turn cool and superb specialeffects.
This sequel is pretty good, but still not as good as the original. At least Earl Basset and Burt Gummer returned to duel with the Graboids. This time, they are in Mexico, and the worms change into Shriekers that can see body heat. I'd probably recommend TREMORS 2: AFTERSHOCKS!!!
The carnivorous "Graboids" of "Tremors" (1990) are back, surfacing inMexico. This time, you'll meet their tamer cousins, the "Shriekers".Contacted due to his experience with the creatures in the first film,fearless Fred Ward (as Earl Bassett) heads back into action, with newpartner Christopher Gartin (as Grady Hoover). Mr. Gartin is anexcellent new addition to the cast. But, former fellow traveler"Valentine McKee" is missed - he is married (presumably to "RhondaLeBeck"), and unable to lend his assistance.However, Mr. Ward does enlist munitions master Michael Gross (as BurtGummer), from the first film. Due to some implied marital difficulties,Mr. Gross is also without his original "Tremors" partner, "Heather".Gross' wall-hanging is one of this film's grander moments.Tightly-fitted geologist Helen Shaver (as Kate Reilly) provides Wardwith some ample romantic interest. As you might expect, these"Aftershocks" are not up to the level of "The Big One" aka the original"Tremors" (1990).***** Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996) S.S. Wilson ~ Fred Ward,Christopher Gartin, Michael Gross
i really enjoyed the original Tremors.it worked on a lot oflevels.unfortunately,this sequel doesn't.it seems to be mostly playedfor camp value,but i don't think it works very well.i found it verymostly very slow and boring.there were a few almost amusing moments,butoverall,it was a disappointment.Kevin Bacon passed on this one,and it'seasy to see why.he must have read the script.Fred Ward is back,butwithout Bacon,he his character just doesn't work as well.Michael Grossreturns,and doesn't have much too do.also,i thought the dialogue waspretty cringe worthy at times.plus,the movie isn't really original.infact it borrows heavily from another big movie that had come out a fewyears ago.i've seen worse movies,but this one still ranks as a majordisappointment.for me,Tremors 2 is a 4/10.
though not quite as good as the original, this is very close. Fred Wardreturns as Earl Basset. Kevin Bacon however is not in this one. MichaelGross returns , and he has some of the movies greatest one-liners youwill ever hear,, I'm totally out of ammo,, that's never happened to mebefore,, this time the creatures evolve to something totally different,and yes they do get smarter,, this time Earl find himself in Mexico ata refinery where he enlists the help of Burt Gummer, who is eager tocome to Earls' rescue,, Helen Shaver is also in this one and is verysexy to say the least. I thought that this one is just a hair below theoriginal but not by much,, very enjoyable for all of you Tremors fansout there, i give it a great big thumbs up.
A great movie, but i would have liked to see Kevin Bacon in it. There are some good plot twists and suspense. The effects are quite good too, although some are quite bloody (not saying thats a bad thing!). The original is much better though, mainly because there is a lot more scares and suspense, and the sequal seems more B-Movie type, but all in all, it is a pretty cool movie! Rent it!
Minor spoilersI was excited about Tremors II when I heard about and when I saw it Ithought is a great sequel with even more frights and an originalideaon how the creatures evolved. Fred Ward and Michael Gross return and theywere very and in the beginning watch for Thomas Rosales Jr. as yet anotherone of his characters get you know what. Tremors II is a great sequel andhas some great spooky parts!I recommend it for the people who like thefirstfilm and horror and science fiction films fans alike!
I have now watched this movie over 20 times (along with the original Tremors). While a bit more slapstick-y that the original - and missing the talents of Reba McIntire and Kevin Bacon - it remains one the funniest sci-fi movies available. More importantly, the comedy is intelligent and the laughs, suspense and scares all work wonderfully together. A must see for fans of bug-eyed monsters and creative sci fi.
Okay, so obviously Universal Pictures thought that they could make a sequelto Tremors without the involvement of Kevin Bacon, who had since revived hiscareer by appearing in such films as Murder In The First. This would havebeen a fair assumption if they had cast someone capable of acting in hisplace, or simply merging Michael Gross into the role of Fred Ward's businesspartner. Unfortunately, they elected instead to place someone in the rolewho is even more annoying than that little idiot you just wished would geteaten by the worms in the original.The idea of changing the whole concept of the creatures was not exactly asmart move, either. Going from a thirty-foot worm to a five-foot bipedalcreature with infra-red vision was a big mistake. The worms had personalityand plausibility in a sort of vague sense. These new creatures were just adisappointment. They had no sense of mystery or subtlety aboutthem.The original Tremors was much better because it left things to theimagination (do you Americans even know what that word means anymore?). Forexample, the origins of the worms and the things that happened to thesurviving residents of Perfection were left for the viewer to make up theirown mind about. Telling us that everyone except Earl did well with theirstories and deals is insulting. Generally, when a small, out-of-the-way townexperiences such a catastrophic event together, they band together to telltheir stories and (hopefully) make a little money so they'll be able to puttheir lives back together.Taken on its own, Tremors 2 is an entertaining enough piece of fluff.However, in the face of competition such as Gremlins, Ghostbusters, and theoriginal Tremors, it falls flat. Alien and Aliens are considered to be theultimate "beast from another world" flicks because the strength of theinteraction between the humans is just as powerful as the creatures and theeffects used to represent them. This is, ultimately, what sinks Tremors 2:in the end, I wanted to go out and feed half the humans to the monstersmyself.
I've seen this movie only once, and I think it's great! I'm gonna order this video straight away!
I watched a number of movies this past weekend. Among them was Tremors 2: Aftershocks. Fred Ward and Michael Gross are back together but Kevin Bacon is absent. The graboids are back and terrorizing Mexico. Fred is hired to hunt them down. For fifty thou per dead worm Fred can't turn them down.Things go pretty smoothly at first but graboids can get smart pretty quick. After the elimination of most of the worms something new happens and the next thing you know it's a whole new ball game and Fred and company will be hard pressed just to survive.If you enjoyed the first movie you will probably like this one. The worm effects are not quite as good (the tongues aren't right) but the original mix of humor and horror is back. Fred even has a new sidekick in Christopher Gartin who has a tendency to look like Kevin Bacon at times. This video (and a lot of others) is available at the Hyde Park Video Good Guys located on 55th near the Shoreland.
