Conclusion: Despite its age, Tremors retains the charm and charisma that's made it a not-so-cult favorite for twenty years. Its wit and comic timing are infectious, its performances a true delight, and its underground menaces as effective as ever. Unfortunately, its Blu-ray release does show its age.
