Tremors: Crying With Kevin Bacon (featuring Chris Ray)

Who Let You Watch That?!

This week our boys are headed out west to the small town of Perfection, Nevada with their special guest, filmmaker Chris Ray, to talk about the 1990 western-themed monster horror comedy, Tremors. In this Ron Underwood (City Slickers and The Adventures of Pluto Nash) feature, we get introduced to the brotherly duo of Valentine "Val" McKee and Earl Bassett played by Kevin Bacon (Footloose and Hollow Man) and Fred Ward (Escape from Alcatraz and The Right Stuff), who show us the importance of standing your ground, even when there's literal monsters underneath it. Filling out the remainder of the town we meet the Gummers played by country music star Reba McEntire (Reba) and Michael Gross (Family Ties and literally every Tremors spinoff there is), a couple who shows us that guns can only get you so far... pipebombs do the rest. Our hosts and special guest break it all down for you in an episode that gets surprisingly real and serious. It turns out that graboids can not only grab your legs and consume you whole, but they can also grab at your heart strings.   Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, & TikTok: @WhoLetYouPod --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
