Filmed_In_Lone_Pine"It’s like we just discovered this on basic cable yesterday, but seriously, Tremors is 25 years old this week, and there’s still so much to say about it. The fact that it stills rules as both a creature feature and a comically podunk, shakey-Jake Western. The argument for this as Kevin Bacon’s best starring vehicle, not that silly old Footloose. The promise of a distinct young director named Ron Underwood who seemingly vanished after the ‘90s. The crazy fact that this spawned several direct-to-video sequels, with yet another one coming soon. But most importantly, we’re here to reflect on the legacy of a ridiculously fun B-movie that features incredible monsters called (ugh), “graboids.” So get your feet off the ground, get cozy in your rumpus room, and join us for an anniversary discussion of Tremors." Quoted from 

It is difficult to isolate exactly why the film is so marvellous, but it is telling that it is nigh on impossible to find something wrong with it. The budget was a very modest 11 million dollars, which means that the effects work has a sense of DIY about it, but if anything this only makes the film better. The spirit that goes into animating the “graboids” – giant man-eating underground worms – is very much the same as that which saw greyhounds wrapped in shaggy coats to masquerade as The Killer Shrews! The sparse It’s 1989 and Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson have a screenplay. The two writers of family-friendly science-fiction including the 1986’s Short Circuit and 1987’s *batteries not included have been working on a script idea based on “land sharks” -and Tremors was born.  25 Years of Graboids: A Look Back at Tremors:


location, the tiny town of Perfection, Nevada, adds a chilling sense of isolation, with the underground menace rendering any conventional method of escape impossible. Scenes of characters trapped on rocks in the middle of the desert show an almost Hitchcockian ability from director Ron Underwood to make the most of a confined space. The writers, SS Wilson and Brent Maddock, were also responsible for Short Circuit, another subversively comic flick which has likewise stood the test of time rather better than some of its contemporaries. See More at the Museum Exhibit Pages @>

Arcadia - Images of America: Owens Valley

The Owens Valley is a bold and beautiful land where rugged alpine peaks tower over the deep trough of high desert that John Muir called “a country of wonderful contrasts.” Inhabiting a rich and complex past are native people, miners, cattlemen, farmers, and city builders who laid claim, often violently, to its resources. By 1913, Owens River wa
