While the days will be getting warmer, the Tremors franchise will be heading somewhere vastly colder than the deserts of Nevada.
SyFy Wire recently released an exclusive clip trailer for the befittingly titled Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, the series’ straight to DVD/Blu-Ray installment of the graboid and ass blaster’s saga.
Entertainment Weekly previously premiered a trailer for the film, which showed off graboid hunter Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) doing what he does best: maniacally laughing whilst filling graboids with holes.
SyFy Wire’s Cold Day in Hell clip showcases the new graboids barreling and tunneling through ice and snow to claim their helpless victims. While there is a lack of Burt Gummer shooting graboids, the monster we do see appears much more intimidating and dangerous than the previous murderous worms. SyFy describes the plot as such:
Michael Gross (one of the stars of the original Tremors film in 1990) returns once again as Burt Gummer, and he’s traveled to the arctic to investigate a series of deadly worm attacks. Aside from the Graboids, he’s not alone — his son, Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy, who appeared in Tremors 5: Bloodlines) will be at his side. Burt will soon begin to suspect that someone is trying to weaponize the Graboids, but uh oh, he also gets poisoned by one of them. Burt and his son have 48 hours to create an antidote, and milking a Graboid may become a (gross) part of the solution.
Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell will see the return of Tremors 5: Bloodline director Don Michael Paul, as well as Bloodline’s and Tremors 3: Back to Perfection’s writer, John Whelpley.
Jamie Kennedy (Scream 2 and Malibu’s Most Wanted), Michael Gross (the Tremors series), and Jamie-Lee Money (Troy: Fall of a City) will star in this installment which will be released to DVD/Blu-Ray on May 1st.
Additionally, the Tremors: Complete Collection DVD box set will be available on the same day and will include Tremors, Tremors 2: Aftershocks, Tremors 3: Back to Perfection, Tremors: The Legend Begins, and Tremors 5: Bloodlines.
The Tremors franchise broke the ice with its first installment in the 90’s, and while it has been digging deep to continue to add to the story’s universe, not every attempt is a triumph.
A Tremors TV series aired on the Sci-Fi channel starring staple actor Michael Gross (Burt Bummer) for a short time, but (as implied) it didn’t last. With a new film worming its way onto small screens, fans will also be getting a new Tremors TV series from SyFy.
While Kevin Bacon has been confirmed to make his return to the series, it is rumored that his co-star in Tremors, Fred Ward, will be returning as well, which you can read about in our article here.
