In 1990, Tremors burrowed its way into cinemas. The horror comedy, about a small town besieged by worm-like creatures, became a cult hit and led to a series of sequels.
But how many Tremors movies are there and more importantly, what is the viewing order for all of these films?!
Hold onto your butts – the answers (and more) are just below!
What is the order of the Tremors movies?
To date, there are seven Tremors movies. The Tremors movies – produced between 1992 and 2020 – include:
- Tremors (1990)
- Tremors 2: Aftershocks (1996)
- Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (2001)
- Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (2004)
- Tremors 5: Bloodlines (2015)
- Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell (2018)
- Tremors: Shrieker Island (2020)
All of the Tremors movies are part of the same series. The events of the series are told in chronological order, with the exception of Tremors 4, which is a prequel to the other films in the collection.
Who are the cast of the Tremors films?
The cast of the Tremors films largely varies across the course of the series. Michael Gross is the only actor to appear in every entry.
Notable actors in the Tremors series include Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Victor Wong, Reba McEntire, John Pappas, Jamie Kennedy and Richard Brake.
Is the Tremors series the work of the same director?
The Tremors films are the work of multiple directors. Ron Underwood directed Tremors, S.S. Wilson directed Tremors 2 & Tremors 4, Brent Maddock directed Tremors 3, and Don Michael Paul directed Tremors 5, Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, and Tremors: Shrieker Island.
What is the best Tremors film?
Tremors is generally considered to be the strongest film in the collection. However, the sequels have developed a loyal fan base which has ensured a relatively consistent production schedule from 1992 onward. In 1993, the series also spawned a short-lived television series, also called Tremors.
If you’re a fan of the Tremors movies, or you’re just getting into Tremors, then you may wish to know that a DVD box set containing all seven movies is currently available.
The box set – Tremors: The 7-Movie Collection – includes all of the movies, beginning with the 1990 original.
