FORT MASON FLIX: Tremors

“This valley is just one long smorgasbord.”
FLIX PIX Staff Selection: Tremors launched an entire franchise of graboid, ass-blaster, and shrieker sequels and a TV series, but the original is still the best! It’s full of dark humor, desert landscapes, new-age crystal gazers, a quirky community that tries to stick together, survivalists, the Wild West mentality, and even some oblique romance amidst the chaos. — Claudia
