Cult classic Tremors is getting a huge Arrow Video 4K Blu-ray release!

I don’t think there’s been a better cult favourite about angry, teeth-worm-monsters that live underground than Tremors, ever. Sure, Dune might come into play when it’s released but there’s something utterly superb about director Ron Underwood‘s pulse-pounding love letter to 1950s creature features that delivers horror and humour in equal measure.

In Tremors, handymen Val (Kevin Bacon) and Earl (Fred Ward) are sick of their dead-end jobs in one-horse desert town Perfection, Nevada (population: 14). Just as they’re about to escape Perfection forever, however, things start to get really weird: half-eaten corpses litter the road out of town; the phone lines stop working; and a plucky young scientist shows evidence of unusually strong seismic activity in the area. Something is coming for the citizens of Perfection… and it’s under the goddamn ground!

Packed with great characters, quotable lines and frankly excellent special effects, Tremors is back and bigger than ever in this 4K-restored and fully loaded collectors’ edition! And there’s a LOT of extras, take a look below for the full list and pre-order now by clicking here!
