Homoeroticism Beneath The Surface of ‘Tremors’ [Horror Queers Podcast]

Ass Blasters

After a month of divergent picks ranging from John Carpenter’s made-for-TV movie Someone’s Watching Me! to Clive Barker’s sprawling Nightbreed to Michele Soavi’s Italian slasher Stage Fright to Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse, Trace and I are ready to wrap up August with an American classic.

It’s time for Tremors, y’all!

Although the film was written and directed by SS. Wilson and Brent Maddock and directed by Ron Underwood, its behind the scenes production was guided by three powerful women, who managed to bring the creature feature together.

The movie is about two men, Kevin Bacon‘s Val and Fred Ward‘s Earl (who may be more than friends) who discover a population of massive creatures burrowing under the surface of their small desert town. With the help of young seismologist Rhonda (Finn Carter) and survivalist couple Burt (Michael Gross) and Heather (Reba McEntire!), the small pocket of people must find their way to solid ground…or be “graboid” up by the horrible, smelly creatures.

Episode 193 – Tremors (1990) feat. Cooper S. Beckett

Be wary of seismic activity because we’re discussing Ron Underwood’s 1990 creature feature, Tremors with the help of author and podcaster Cooper S. Beckett.

Let’s get this…er…straight right off the top: this is a very queer film! Not only are Val and Earl totally in a relationship, but Rhonda is lesbian-coded.

Plus: horrifying deaths, practical Graboid effects, the politics of survivalist couple Burt and Heather, short pole-vaults and what the fuck is homosociality?!

Cross out Tremors!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re starting September with a trip to Poland for a night club act headlined by mermaid sisters with The Lure (2015/2017).
