Earl Bassett, now a washed-up ex-celebrity, is hired by a Mexican oil company to eradicate a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only one with a new battle plan.
The new sequel finds Burt Gummer, who's dying from Graboid poison, and his son Travis at a remote research station in Canada's Nunavut Territory, where they must go up against a new batch of Graboids to save Burt's life.

At the same time, a seismologist is working in the area, she detects _tremors_. The creature lives underground, and can 'pop up' without warning. Trapped in their town, the town-folk have no escape.Written by
Composer Robert Folk was brought in at the very last minute to re-score the film. This was due to the original score composed by credited composer Ernest Troost was lacking the punch that it needed for the film musically. Approximately thirty minutes or more was written by Folk and strangely goes uncredited in the film's credits. Oddly enough, both scores are used in the film; Troost's score is more westernly and country-like with the usage of guitars and harmonicas and is mostly used in softer moments, whereas Folk's score is more epic and uses more trumpets, violins, and big instruments, and is used more closer to the climax and in more intense moments.

When Earl goes to where Rhonda found the pole-vaulting sticks, two of them are conveniently placed right next to the rock, but when Rhonda first took a stick, they were in a random place farther from the rock. Further, the poles grow in length from the time they are picked up by Earl until the long shot of them being used. See more »
Roger that Burt, and congratulations. Be advised, however, that there are two more, repeat, two more motherhumpers.

DVD version has several deleted scenes. The first scene shows the old farmer running from unseen Graboids after they have killed his horse. Another scene shows Val and Earl in their truck debating talking and driving. The next scene shows Earl trying to calm down the little girl while they are in the bulldozer. The next scene shows the reason why Val went back for Rhonda, his lighter. See more »
Loved the movie. How could you not? It has two lovably bumbling buddies, Val and Earl, played to perfection by Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward. It has a remarkably funny gun crazed survivalist couple played completely straight-faced by Michael Gross and Reba McEntire. It has a wonderfully batty bunch of "townsfolk," a winsome heroine and bad lot of underground drag racing worms looking to eat the characters mentioned above. The movie stands out from the "trapped and pursued" genre because it contains tongue-in-cheek humor, comedic escapes, inspired foreshadowing of doom and nutty monster mayhem. This is a delightful B monster movie that would best be watched with fellow funny movie buffs, popcorn and beer.
