Sordid Cinema Podcast #536: What Makes ‘Tremors’ Special?

Tremors Podcast Review

How has this low-budget creature feature about a dusty southwestern town under attack by carnivorous worm monsters managed to secure a place in cult movie history? For this episode of the Sordid Cinema Podcast, Rick and Patrick burrow deep into Tremors in order to break down just what makes this film so special. From the creative and menacing practical effects, to the simple and efficient script, as well as the charismatic cast and skillful camera work, there’s a lot to love here. Join us as we go into some of the production history, discuss in detail our favorite and least favorite scenes, who or what we think the film’s success most relies on, and whether we think Tremors will continue to stand the test of time.

For all this and more, have a listen!

Launched in 2007, Sordid Cinema is one of the longest-running film podcasts. Following a long absence (let’s call it an extended break), Ricky D is back on the Sordid Cinema beat, accompanied by his new co-host, Patrick Murphy. The Sordid Cinema Podcast makes its return, with a new format that sees hosts Ricky D and Patrick Murphy discussing some of our favorite genre films over the years that may have flown under the radar for some audiences. This new version of the long-running show will focus more on discussion and less, on reviews, as we hope to examine the selections from a multitude of angles and break down what makes these films so special. Brought to you by the former editors of Sound on Sight, Sordid Cinema is Goomba Stomp’s Film and TV section and a leading source of movie reviews, and discussion from the world of international, independent, cult and genre cinema. We cover film festivals around the world including Cannes, TIFF, Fantasia, NYFF, Tribeca, Fantastic Fest, SXSW, FNC, Venice, Berlin, and more.
