Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will release Tremors: Shrieker Island on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and digitally Oct. 20. It will also be available for streaming on Netflix at a date to be announced.
The seventh film in the long-running “Tremors” franchise finds Michael Gross returning as Graboid hunter Burt Gummer, joined by Jon Heder as his potential protégé as they take on a batch of genetically modified Graboids terrorizing a tropical island.
The film was produced by Universal 1440 Entertainment, the original content production arm of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, and marks the 30th anniversary of the 1990 theatrical release of the original Tremors.
The first film, which starred Kevin Bacon and dealt with large worm-like creatures attacking a small desert community, spawned a series of direct-to-video sequels starting in 1996, all of which featured Gross reprising his Gummer character from the original.
Extras on the Blu-ray, DVD and digital editions (at select retailers) will include “The Monsters of Tremors,” a featurette narrated by Gummer that profiles the Graboids, Shriekers and Ass Blasters; “Tremors Top 30 Moments,” a showcase of memorable moments from all seven movies, from the biggest laughs to the most gruesome kills; and “The Legend of Burt Gummer,” a tribute to Michael Gross from Kevin Bacon, Jamie Kennedy, Ariana Richards and several past and present cast and crew of the franchise.
A Tremors 7-Movie Collection DVD set also will be available Oct. 20.
