Every episode, our podcasting Barry Norman, aka Stuart Mulrain, lets a guest choose a film to discuss, reminisce over and share why they love it. This week he and author Jonathan Melville get caught up by the graboids...
Repairmen Val McKee (Kevin Bacon) and Earl Bassett (Fred Ward) are tired of their dull lives in the small desert town of Perfection, Nev. But just as the two try to skip town, they happen upon a series of mysterious deaths and a concerned seismologist (Finn Carter) studying unnatural readings below the ground. With the help of an eccentric couple (Reba McEntire, Michael Gross), the group fights for survival against giant, worm-like monsters hungry for human flesh.
Jonathan Melville's book Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors celebrates 25 years of the cult movie (and Kevin Bacon owns TWO copies of the book!) so we reckon he knows what he's talking about.
