Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (2004)

There was always an underlying Western feel to the Tremors series. Part Four takes that further by going back to 1889 for a Wild West prequel that’s as familiar as it is different. There’s a town, a small group of people, Chang’s Market and a Gummer. It’s far from perfect but the return to more rubber and less CGI was a very, very welcome one.
It’s unlikely we’ll ever get that hoped for fifth film. Hopefully that also means any attempt at a half-assed reboot is also off the cards. I'd rather a permanent end than see it turned into a typical American monster movie.

EDIT: We did eventually get a fifth film! 0_0  It's HERE.
