Is there a better way to ring in the new year than with Burt Gummer and a whole bunch of Graboids?
Netflix has started this new year with some pretty exciting news for horror fans. The entire 'Tremors' franchise is up and available for us to stream on Netflix and we are beyond excited. And what could possibly be a better way to start off this new year than with Burt Gummer and a whole bunch of Graboids?
From 1990 original classic to the CGI-laden movie of 2018, all six movies starring Michael Gross is now available for the fans to stream on Netflix. The list includes Tremors, Tremors 2: Aftershocks, Tremors 3: Back to Perfection, Tremors 4: The Legend Begins, Tremors 5: Bloodlines, and Tremors 6: A Cold Day in Hell.
In my opinion, we enjoyed the first two movies of the installment the most, but there is absolutely no denying that Michael Gross was insanely fun to watch as the Graboid-hunting Burt Gummer in the other movies as well.
Apart from that, he also plays the role of Hiram Gummer, Burt Gummer’s great-grandfather, in the 1889-set prequel, Tremors 4: The Legend Begins, but it is more or less the same character. The IMDb synopsis of the first movie reads, "A small town gradually becomes aware of a strange creature which picks off people one by one. But what is this creature, and where is it? At the same time, a seismologist is working in the area, she detects _tremors_. The creature lives underground, and can 'pop up' without warning. Trapped in their town, the town-folk have no escape."
The 1990 movie was the first one and the cast had Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Finn Carter, Michael Gross, Reba McEntire, Robert Jayne, Charlotte Stewart, Tony Genaro, Ariana Richards, Richard Marcus, Victor Wong, Sunshine Parker, Michael Dan Wagner, Conrad Bachmann, and Bibi Besch.
The first movie was directed by Ron Underwood with a story from S.S. Wilson, Brent Maddock, and Ron Underwood. Upon its release, the movie was hailed by critics for its diverse cast and humor and it holds a fresh 85 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Even though the movie was a modest hit at the box office, Tremors went on to become a massive hit on home video purchases and even became one of the most rented films of 1990. Since it became such a phenomenon and a household name, the movie franchise has gained a very large cult following over the years.
