In the popular horror-comedy Tremors, it's not what's under the sun you've got to look out for -- it's what's under the ground. Universal has done a fair job on this 1.85:1 non-anamorphic widescreen transfer. While it's disappointing that this film wasn't given anamorphic treatment, this is a still a very nice transfer with sharp colors and well-defined black levels. The picture is crisp and detailed with a minimum of grain, dirt, and edge enhancement. The audio is presented in Dolby Surround and is only moderate. Tremors is a film that could have easily benefited from a 5.1 remix. Sadly, fans are stuck with this lackluster Dolby Surround mix that has some channel separation, though the bulk of the soundtrack is still filtered mainly through the center speaker. Also included on this disc are Spanish subtitles, English captions, and Dolby Surround soundtracks in French and Spanish. What Tremors lacks in the technical department, it makes up for in its supplements. This edition of Tremors starts off with an almost hour-long documentary on the making of the film. This is a great retrospective that features lots of behind-the-scenes footage, as well as interviews with much of the cast and crew from the film. A collection of deleted scenes and outtakes are featured in a rough full-frame version that should please fans. A short production featurette is basically one large promotional trailer for the film, though it does include a few insightful interviews with some of the cast and crew. Finally, there are some production notes, some interview profiles on select cast and crew members, a short gallery of production stills, two full frame theatrical trailers for Tremors, and a theatrical trailer for the sequel Tremors 2: Aftershocks.
