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 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?!
