"Tremors 2: Aftershocks" by Yojimbo

A Mexican oil company hires Earl to hunt the "graboids" which have been stalking their drilling fields giving him a second chance for fame and fortune, but the creatures have another surprise up their sleeves. This sequel to the enjoyable comic creature feature hinges on one decision: the idea of abandoning the underground monster theme and replacing it with a new strain of monster that attacks from above ground; perhaps understandable to create more scope for the idea, but it means that the film doesn't "feel" like Tremors any more.

Fred ward and Gross do a nice job in the film with Grossí character the real driving force behind it. Still, Kevin Baconís presence is sorely missed as Wardís partner-in-crime. T...
