Tremors 2: Aftershocks (1996)

There’s no Bacon this time, but Fred Ward and Michael Gross return for seconds. Some out-of-towners (from a different arse-hole of nowhere) have a Graboid problem, so they enlist the help of the 'experts' to quell it.
It’s kind of flat until Burt rolls in with his armoury. From that point onward it’s almost as much fun as the first film; almost, but not quite. No matter, because this being a sequel means the previous Precambrian threat gets upstaged by a new, more dangerous one in the form of what the man with a plan calls “a whole new ball game” to keep the team occupied.

3½ big new chances out of 5
