This prequel of the bone-chilling Tremors begins in the town of Rejection, Nev., in 1889, where 17 men die under mysterious circumstances. Spooked by recent events, the miners who populate the town leave in droves until there's nothing left but a shell of a community. It's up to the remaining residents to get to the bottom of the deaths -- but they must do so before they, too, are eradicated off the face of the planet.

It is a performances centric movie
This is a must-see and one of the best documentaries - and films - of this year.
It’s fine. It's literally the definition of a fine movie. You’ve seen it before, you know every beat and outcome before the characters even do. Only question is how much escapism you’re looking for.
Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.
This is a great movie. The first Tremors movie is scarier. Tremors 2 After Shocks is scarier. But still this is one of the scariest movie form the last decade. It is a lot better then Tremors 3 back to Perfection. That movie is OK but this one is better. This is a prequel to Tremors. It is very scary. It has a great story line. It also has great acting. It also has great special effects. 5.4 is underrating this movie. It is a great movie. I give it 9 out of 10. This movie is a must see. Michael Gross is a great actor. Sara Bostsford is a great actress. S.S Wilson is a great film maker. See this movie. It is the best horror movie from the last decade.
It's 1889 in the town of Rejection, Nevada. A recent Graboid attack in the nearby silver mine has empty most of the town. The remaining few must rally around the newcomer to town and mine owner Hiram Gummer (Michael Gross) to restart the abandoned mine and battle the monsters.Like the 'Back to the Future' franchise, once they travel back in time to the old west, there's something about the old west that seems to be a black hole for franchises. That's what this movie represents. It says somebody has run out of ideas. The Graboid hasn't metamorphosed yet. So only the ground burrowing kind is there this time. That's probably a good thing. Michael Gross is the only one left in the franchise. There really isn't anything left. This vein is truly played out.
I call myself a Tremors fan and have enjoyed all four movies. The first is the best of course, but the three films that succeeded it are flawed but equally worthy. This entry is the weakest in some ways, but it was still fun and enjoyable.I do agree this one is the slowest entry. Not just in the pacing, which is rather lethargic even for Tremors, but also the action which had its jumpy and tense moments but sadly seemed rather subdued and lacklustre. I wasn't hugely keen on the story here either, I loved the idea, but while there are some entertaining parts the slow pacing and lacklustre action made some parts drag a bit, while the direction wasn't as efficient as it could have been. Also I wasn't as impressed with the design of the Graboids this time around, they were great in the previous three but here they seemed too small and somewhat cartoonish.However, the cinematography is skillful and the scenery is beautiful. The sound effects are great, and when the action isn't lacklustre it does shock you and make you jump. The script has its fair share of funny moments too, and the acting particularly from Michael Gross is decent. Overall, it is a decent prequel, but it was a little messy at times this time around and lacked something. 6/10 Bethany Cox
A little better than 'Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (2001)', but definitely inferior to 'Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996)'. Even if none of these straight to video sequels reach the greatness of the original, it's still quite an enjoyable franchise that manages to storm up something refreshing for the viewer as the creators knew what they wanted. Helping out a lot was that most of the guys behind the idea (Ron Underwood, Brett Maddock and S.S. Wilson) were aboard, albeit writing, directing or producing. They were always involved in some way and they're love for it showed in their works. Also let's not forget that Michael Gross is the only one from the original cast to appear in all four as his energetically memorable gung-ho Burt Gummer. Well that wasn't entirely the case and this last instalment (to date) paints that out.The fourth tremor film sees us transported back to what is a prequel. Set 1889 Nevada, in the small working town Rejection (yes before it was called Perfection). During one day nineteen miners are picked off in silver mine by some unseen creature (graboid) and this causes most the town to pack and leave. The owner of the mine Hiram Gummer (Burt's descended) arrives to an almost ghost town to hopefully rid the problem and re-open the mine.Michael Gross's character is largely different to what was use to seeing. It surprises. But the change of character/personality to what he becomes and what we love about him is done very well because of Gross' sincere acting. Billy Drago is simply wonderful and a joy to behold in his short role as the gun for hire. The rest of the cast do a very capable job, but we know whose show it is any way. Yes Gross, but the graboids too. With a mixture of well-constructed CGI and terrific animatronics' puppets that do come off. With the crew favouring the use of the latter more often and for such a low-budget production is amiably crafted.The plot structure (by S.S Wilson, Brett Maddock and Nancy Roberts) is dryly old-fashion monster fun on the western frontier that actually cares for its characters, pops in some consistent light humour and can rally pockets of suspense. Director S.S Wilson relax handling has a brisk and spirited flow to it.
