One of the biggest items of horror news to hit the net yesterday was confirmation that a Tremors TV series is in the works at Syfy through a collaboration with Blumhouse TV; best of all, Kevin Bacon who starred as Valentine McKee in the original Tremors (directed by Ron Underwood and released in 1990) is said to be involved as lead actor and executive producer. All of this is in addition to a 6th Tremors film starring Jamie Kennedy & Michael Gross set to drop in January.
The TV series would pick up 25 years after the original film left off. The killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed the small town of Perfection, Nevada 25 years ago are back and the town’s only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Bacon) who beat them once, but to do it again, he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex. The movie revolved around natives of a the town who have to defend themselves against strange underground creatures that are killing them one by one.
