It’s been eleven years since the last Tremors movie that I barely paid attention to, but damn, it’s impressive that Michael Gross keeps coming back to be Burt Gummer, that rare positive Hollywood portrayal of a right-wing, survivalist gun aficionado. In this one, they go to Africa for the tax breaks to stop an outbreak of Graboids on the other side of the world.
I can’t decide whether or not Jamie Kennedy’s Bruce Willis impersonation is just the right kind of tribute, or really self-referentially awful, mainly because I’m irrationally glad that this series is still going strong.
Okay, maybe strong’s not the word. Direct to video in October. Check it out.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
