Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward star as two country handymen who lead a cast of zany characters to safety in this exciting sci-fi creature adventure. Just as Val McKee (Bacon) and Earl Basset (Ward) decide to leave Perfection, Nevada, strange rumblings prevent their departure. With the help of a shapely seismology student (Finn Carter), they discover their desolate town is infested with gigantic man-eating creatures that live below the ground. The race is on to overcome these slimy subterraneans and find a way to higher ground in this enjoyable thriller co-starring Michael Gross and Reba McEntire.
I was filming Tremors, touring and getting married all at the same time! This was my very first movie. We filmed it out in the desert in Lone Pine, California. I would get into the motel around 2am, and here they’d come to take me to the set by 4am! It would be cold in the morning and evening and scorching hot in the afternoon. It certainly wasn’t glamorous!! I loved working with Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Michael Gross and the entire cast. Mama was with me on some of the shooting. On June 2nd, she drove with me from Lone Pine to Lake Tahoe where we had 3 shows to do that weekend. We did our Friday night show at Caesars, got married Saturday afternoon on a catamaran at Emerald Bay, did our first show, had our wedding reception and then did our 2nd show. The next day, I went back to filming Tremors. We didn’t have our Honeymoon until June 21st!
