TREMORS is a 1990 comedy sci-fi horror in which the inhabitants of an isolated town in the desert have to defend themselves against giant worm-like monsters.


There is moderate threat as various characters are pursued or taken by the monsters. Scenes of threat, however, are invariably broken up by lighter or comedic moments.


Infrequent gory images include the sight of a decapitated head, the sight of blood and possibly brain matter on a discarded hard hat and the sight of blood beneath the nose and on the back of a male character as he is taken and devoured by a monster.


There is a single use of strong language ('f**k'). There is also moderate and mild bad language, including use of 'ass', 'asshole', 'bastard', 'bitch', 'bullshit', 'pisses', 'screw', 'shit; and 'son of a bitch'. The term 'motherhumper' is also used on a couple of occasions.
