‘Tremors: Shrieker Island’ Centers Around a ‘Most Dangerous Game’-Style Monster Hunt

Horror fans who were craving a “Most Dangerous Game’ style movie but with giant worm monsters are in for a treat. ‘Tremors: Shrieker Island’ is coming to blu ray and DVD October 20, 2020.

The direct-to-video monster sequel is the seventh film in the horror franchise from Universal Pictures. This movie, like previous in the franchise, centers around an invasion of Graboids, giant worm-like monsters that are also referred to in the movies as “Shriekers” or “Ass-Blasters.”

The film’s star Michael Gross announced the seventh entry in the Tremors series back in 2018, stating “Tremors fans will be delighted to know I have just agreed to the terms of a contract for a seventh film. My best estimate is that Burt Gummer will begin his hunt for Graboids and other nefarious forms of wildlife in the fall of 2019.”

The film began filming in Thailand last year and wrapped after less than a month of filming. Tremors: Shrieker Island stars Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Jackie Cruz, and Richard Brake. It will not star Jamie Kennedy, who portrayed the son of Burt Gummer in the fifth and sixth installments of the series.

Tremors: Shrieker Island can be ordered on Amazon here and includes a digital version of the movie.
