Tremors 7: Shrieker Island (2020) -- S: Michael Gross





When a nature preserve in the Solomon Islands is infiltrated by Graboids, Ass Blasters, and Shriekers, two of the preserve's top scientists recruit Burt Gummer, monster hunter extraordinaire, to eradicate the infestation. While there, Burt picks up a potential new protégé and encounters lost love.







Comes out on BD October 20th.


I still need to get Tremors 6. Yes, I do have most of the Tremors series on BD.

That does look good.

It can't be as good as it looks, but it could be close. This franchise has really overachieved!

Michael Gross is just great. i don't care if all he basically did was Family Ties and these. he is awesome in these, though i have only seen first 2. he made a second career with Tremors. good for him.

Nice little doc. I wonder why that was produced. The first film still holds up really well.

It still blows my mind that there is a Blumhouse produced, Kevin Bacon starring, Tremors pilot out there that was not picked up. Film some additional scenes and turn it into a movie. Put it on Peacock or something.

How did I miss this thread back in August, so happy at the news that a new Tremors film exists and is up on Netflix. I must have watched the 6th at least 2-4 times. I have seen the OG at least 6 times, the 2nd probably nearly as much, the third at least 2-3 times, I think I have seen the 4th twice, the 5th film only once, as mentioned the 6th at least 2-4 times, and it sounds like like I will now be enjoying this film at least twice before the year is up.

I will also view the 30m doc later this evening.

ETA: This was great...a lot of fun to watch. No spoilers but prepare yourself as the end hits you right in the feels.

If they plan to continue the franchise how
Spoiler:
are they going to do it without Gross? I don’t mind that they killed him off. It was a good death. They just better not pass this franchise over to Jamie Kennedy to lead. But hey, if they do eventually “reboot” with Bacon, they could just say Burt is dead. It wouldn’t negate anything that took place in these movies. The only thing they’d need to include or reference is Valentine’s daughter from the 6th movie.

Spoiler:
Haven’t watched this yet, but it will be weird to not have Michael Gross in the films anymore seeing as he’s been in them all plus the short lived series.

Re: Tremors 7: Shrieker Island (2020) -- S: Michael Gross

Just read this from Gross:
Spoiler:
Don Michael Paul’s Shrieker Island – now available on Blu-ray, VOD and Netflix – ends with the death of Michael Gross‘s iconic character Burt Gummer, sacrificing himself and being devoured by a massive Graboid. It’s a surprisingly touching note to end the film on, with the end credits sequence of the film playing a series of Gummer highlights from Tremors movies past.

But is Burt *really* dead? We never actually see his body to 100% confirm that he has indeed been killed in the Graboid attack, after all. Gross himself thinks that door is still open.

“There’s a part of me that feels that Universal Home Entertainment might’ve had enough of Tremors. The suggestions that were made in the course of this [movie] made me think maybe they’ve had enough,” Gross explained in a chat with BD’s Boo Crew Podcast. “They came to me and said, ‘What if we ended it at 7?’ and I said, ‘Whatever you choose to do, I’m good with that.'”

“That being said,” Gross continued, “The door is still open for an eighth Tremors. It may seem unlikely by what people see on the screen, but it is possible. There could be an eighth. And if there were, and if it were an interesting story, I would be up for it because Burt is always a great deal of fun. It would depend on his physicality. How much they want me to do. If it’s in another two years, I’ll be 75 years old. So I will continue to hope and pray that I stay in shape, to do what is asked of me – if it is asked of me.”

He added, “Another sequel will be driven by the response to this one.”

Re: Tremors 7: Shrieker Island (2020) -- S: Michael Gross

I just finished on Netflix and it was pretty good. Very well made for one of their straight to video movies. Good special effects and sets.

I felt like this was

Spoiler:


The end of the Burt Gummer saga. The ending and credits felt like a final tribute to the character through the series. He was the last tie in to the original movie from 1990. And I thought it was interesting that he made a quick reference to Val and Earl. If they do an eighth movie, I think it will be a reboot with a new lead character. It will be similar to what Universal did with Death Race and The Scorpion King



It’s a worthy watch if you’re a fan of the series. I enjoyed this more than A Cold Day in Hell.
