    Gutter to hear this, lived to a decent age but Tremors was one of my favourite films when I was a wee guy. Between this and Big Trouble in Little China for what I've watched most, but I think Tremors won. In some other good films, Escape from Alcatraz, The Right Stuff etc but used to watch Tremors constantly. Ma two cats are named Val and Earl :(

    Sad to hear of this. Had a strong screen presence, even though made some dross but there were some good ones though... Tremors was great. Made a few other pretty good ones as well. Escape From Alcatraz, Swing Shift, The Right Stuff etc. And a couple of those daft early 00's comedies, in Joe Dirt & Road Trip.

    Rest in peace. :(

    Sad news. Fred and Kevin Bacon were brilliant in Tremors.
