I am a mark for good creature features.  Tremors, a favorite film of another confidant, has swanky monsters brilliantly designed to bring both terror and sometimes hilarity, which is one of the strong points of the film.  Before the recent trend of horror-comedy films, this movie was one of the premium ones in its class.  Physical slapstick and well executed punchlines were the source of great merriment, while the monsters brought the suspense.   When I saw Kevin Bacon on the cast list, I didn’t know how well he would fit in the film but he was great.  Tremors was an overall fun viewing excursion.
