According to Kevin Bacon, at some point of his career, he called this the most fun he had had making a movie. It does have that kind of a feel. There is another story where he practically broke down about the idea of making such a movie he saw as a career low at the time. He went later on to do a TV series called I Love Dick as the titular character, so that might not have been the last time he felt that way. However, I do think Tremors is a good movie and definitely something to be proud of despite the creature-feature premise.

Does controversy actually sell? Hard to say. This one was clearly aimed to be controversial and based on the little evidence I have, it sort of worked.
When watching movies, context matters a lot.
If you are in for a messed up movie, this is a good choice.
Found this on a list of best horror movies on Rotten Tomatoes. Is it that good? No, but it is good enough to watch.
James Gunn’s first directing effort after quite a few writing gigs. I do enjoy his loyalty to certain people around him, like Michael Rooker.
These people get into shit because of overconfident corporate middle management. Well, that’s a starting point… Also, while many low budget films are shot in eastern Europe, specifically Bulgaria, this actually takes place there.
