No, you're not missing anything. Anyone seeing the original designs is seeing things.
If you guys are going to dispute what someone says, you should probably pay attention to what they're saying first.

What TyrantGojira said isn't wrong.
I didn't dispute it. I asked if I was missing something, which turns out I was. I wasn't aware of the "new" and "old" world names for them. I've always seen just African and American.

It's amazing how art imitates life and vice versa. One could easily see this worm inspiring a grabboid that lurks in shallow waters.

Recent comments seem to suggest that Fred Ward is returning to the Tremors franchise for Kevin Bacon's upcoming Syfy series.

Haven’t see Ward in ages. Hope this is true.

Damn it! I was looking forward to the TV series more then anything else from the Tremor series. Fred Ward coming back gave me a lot of hope too maybe another network will pick it up.

I was hoping we'd get the classic Graboid design with a series. Oh well, I still enjoy the movie series but I was really looking forward to this. Any reason why it won't happen?

Network didn't pick it up I imagine. He didn't go into specifics in the tweet I saw.

Wonder if Netflix would have any interest. It seems like the kind of thing they'd put on their service and has just the right amount of star power to do well.

6 was hot garbage. If you didn't like the last one I don't think you'll like this one.

Saw it out of morbid curiosity and... it wasn't BAD, but it wasn't good either. Just sorta a run of the mill straight to TV sequel in terms of quality.


Some good practical effects, great landscape shots, some witty dialogue here and there... undermined by genero-bad CGI, crude humor moments, very predictable plot, and one note characters. I give it a 5.5/10. You're not missing anything by skipping this entry.

Is 6 out now? If so, does anyone have any idea if Universal's going to bring out a six-films-in-one release, like they did with Attack Pack and Anthology before?

Just finished A Cold Day in Hell. I thought it was enjoyable. Better than Bloodlines but just behind The Legend Begins.

Okay. I'm watching it now. I'll update with some bullet points.
Spoiler:
-hopefully this "did you change teams??" Thing goes somewhere. Because its been brought up twice now and I hope its not just a "lol we wanted him to wear a different hat" excuse.

-I thought that nobody could touch perfection because it was protected because of El Blanco? How are they just rolling up and ceasing property?

-Callback to Val and Rhonda. That's cool. Nice to know they made it.

-So these new Graboids are actually the ancestors of the ones we saw in the original films? That's why they are bigger and look different? I can actually get behind that.

-Lol, he had a tapeworm. Irony

-Dude! I want Graboid skin boots!

-Kind of feel like Val is gonna be a villian.

-oh my god are we getting water graboids?? (Edit: nope... Just a regular Graboid under the floor of the spring... Meh)

-Okay, so Graboids are venomous now? Are they going to explain this?

-okay, so call back to part 3. He was infected with the venom when he was swallowed. Neat.

-Still didn't get a "Graboids aren't venomous!!" Response or anything... So we're just gonna accept this? Kay...

-...that Graboid just did a dirty thing to that girl...

-okay I hope this guy in the glasses dies. He's a liability. Get eaten or get out.

-He got eaten.

-Water is the new oil?

-I thought these Graboids tongues detached? They seem like they're just tounges again. (Edit: they never detach)

-Lol call back to Rhonda taking off her pants in the original. That was funny.

-peeing? To distract a Graboid? That's dumb... But still better then the "poop! I'm pissing myself!" And bury drinking his own pee scenes in 5. Why are these movies so fixated on urine now?

-apparently, Graboid venom attacks only happen when you're in danger, you're fine any other time.

-did they just use the same exact shot of a tongue crawling up a rock only seconds apart?

-If they kill Burt, this franchise is dead.

-Heather callback! I'm really liking these references.

-Their gonna go Graboid fishing? That actually sounds awesome.

-The Graboid gore is really good. Straight out of Aftershocks

-one Graboid left and their big weapon that was working perfectly on all the other ones is of course, busted now. They use this plot device in almost every Tremors movie.

-Mustang Sally!

-bet me. Valerie poisoned burt and made up the "we need to capture a live Graboid to cure him" thing so she could get a live Graboid for evil purposes... It has to be going this route.

-Here comes the fishin!

-that was actually a pretty fun scene.

-oooh... Practical Graboid head! Nice! Not the best effect, but appreciated

-Graboids can burp apparently.

-this one on one scene of them vs the trapped graboid is kind of dum... Oh good Burt just shot it. Thank you

-Burt gets poisoned by being inside a Graboid... How should be get the antidote? Lets crawl inside a Graboid...

How does a Graboid administer its venom? Its literally just a ball of snot hanging from his throat.

-I swear to god if this isn't a fake out I'm done with the franchise. Burts not dead...

-called it.

-so they just drop the weaponized Graboid line at the end of the film... Burt suspected it earlier. But it was written off, now there's a quick scene saying "They WERE weaponized all along!! Muhahaha"

-Burt killed the Weaponized Graboid. They even warned him it was government property. While that was for the best, that still sounds like a pretty big thing that Burt would get a lot of Jail time for.

-So I guess these new Graboids look different because they are Weaponized? I could get behind that theory too. As long as they aren't just played off as the regular Graboid. But PLEASE give us the old ones back, at least for one movie... Give us an El Blanco vs a Super Digger.

-Okay I was wrong about Val. My bad. Missed opportunity though.

-lol brokedick.
Okay. That wasn't bad, it wasn't on par with the original Trilogy. But I'd say it's at least as good if not a little better then 4. I LOVED all the callbacks to the previous movies, although it seems like they are just taking Shreikers out of the equasion. They never mention them. Ever. Even when they are talking about the old Graboids and Assblasters. Which kind of sucks because I think Shreikers are my favorite of the line.

I'd rank the franchise probably like this.

1
2
3
6
4
5

But 4 and 6 are pretty interchangeable. I think they are both equally entertaining... But 6 is a bit more dumb.
