The movie Tremors is one of those monster movies that were created on a minimal budget, they flopped big time at the box office, but they kicked ass in the VHS and came out as a hit. Now, Tremors has become has a cult following not just in America but internationally.
Only the first movie was released in the theaters and all the other films were direct-to-tv but they all performed really well as per their targets on the small screen. However, the main star of the first movie never came back for any of the sequels, yes, we are talking about Kevin Bacon.
However, last year he had confirmed that he is the executive producer of a new Tremors TV series that will be launched directly on Amazon Prime as an exclusive. After that, the news for Tremors 6 started to dominate the internet and people thought that Kevin’s show is has bitten the dust, but that’s not the case. In the recent Reddit “Ask Me Anything” forum, Kevin has confirmed that the show is on track, the script is ready & approved, he even affirmed that show is the part of the Tremor canon but it won’t be connected to the upcoming Tremors 6 movie with Michael Gross as the lead. In an interview, Kevin Bacon remembered his first movie like this:-
“Tremors did not perform at the box office, but it did great on VHS. When I came up with the idea and reached out to Blumhouse about looking at it again, I looked at the movie, and I don’t look at my movies, at all. I went back and put it up on my screen at home and went, “Wow, this is a really good movie!” I just didn’t get it when I was there and in it. I wrote it off [at the time] ‘cause it wasn’t a hit, and I really needed one. But, I think it’s a really good movie. It’s unusual and it’s funny. Doing funny scary is something that is rarely good and rarely works, and it’s also something that’s incredibly hard to market. I think that was part of the problem. Funny scary is tough unless you’re Snakes on a Plane”
