The 1st Tremors film was directed by Ron Underwood (Once Upon A Time, Grey’s Anatomy, Might Joe Young), Produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) and starred Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Reba McEntire, Finn Carter and Michael Gross. Kevin Bacon stars as Valentine “Val”  McKee; a handyman in Perfection, Nevada, who discovers a fellow town native dead under suspicious circumstances. Val and another native, Earl Bassett, struggle to make sense of the deaths they continue to encounter, only to find that it’s no human killer they need to fear, but a vicious ground dwelling creature, known as a “Graboid”. Val, Earl and the remaining citizens of the isolated desert town work together to defend themselves from the monstrous worms, before they are killed off one by one.
