Mortug

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Burt and Heather are fighting the graboid in their basement, shortly after Heather yells "Magazine!", one of the large revolvers between them falls off the rack but is replaced in the next shot.

BaconIsMyBFF

Continuity mistake: When Val is getting the fuse lit on his bomb to throw to the last Graboid, we see his hands separated, one holding the bomb and one holding the rope. The camera angle changes to a close up of his hands, where they are now both holding both the bomb and rope. (01:24:50)

DavidRTurner

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, watch Kevin Bacon's hair when they're driving in the truck. In some camera shots, his hair is blowing in the wind. In others, his hair is not moving at all. This happens several times.

Videl

Continuity mistake: The green fuzzy dice in the guys' truck change over and over. Sometimes they're stuck up behind the rear view mirror, sometimes they're hanging down. Granted, they could fall and the guys could stick them back up again, but in one scene when they're behind the mirror, the faces of the dice that are visible from the front change.

Krista

Continuity mistake: When all pole vault, Fred is holding the pole in his right hand palm up. Then he goes 1/2 the distance and returns to the start but his right hand is palm down. (01:00:00)

Continuity mistake: When Val is climbing up the electrical tower to get Edgar down, at first the sky is blue, then suddenly it's overcast. (00:13:40)

Krista

Continuity mistake: After Burt reports on the radio that he has killed the graboid in his basement, there are shots of the towns people celebrating. The sky behind all of them is different, specifically the mother and her daughter. In other shots there is blue sky. In these shots there are darker clouds.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Walter is being attacked by the Grabbloid, the blood coming from his nostrils, and blood on his upper lip, changes between the first and second shot. (00:51:20)

Skrypto

Continuity mistake: When Val, Earl and Rhonda are on the rock and decide to pole vault off, Rhonda's backpack is flat when she scrambles down the rock, but appears full once she reaches the bottom. (00:40:20)

Revealing mistake: Near the end, Val, Earl and Rhonda are way off the rocks after the blast. When the monster comes up out of the ground and Val takes off, you can see the "ground" bounce. It's definitely a false ground so they can get the "graboid" pushed up through it. (01:24:10)

Earl: Damn it listen to me, I'm older and I'm wiser.
Val: Yeah well, you're half right.

More quotes from Tremors

Trivia: When Mindy is getting her picture taken next to one of the graboid's tongues, look at the shelf of movies behind her when the camera zooms out its farthest in that shot; in the second row down (I think it's the in the second row down), if you look really closely, you can see that one of the movies is Tremors.

Suggested correction: This is simply not true. The edge of the tremors VHS is black with Tremors written down the middle in orange writing with a small picture at the top of the main characters. There is no black video with orange writing in this scene.

Question: Wouldn't Burt and his wife get in trouble for having all the weapons in their house? Even in later movies, there is no sign they got in trouble and Burt continued to have all these big weapons on hand.

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: No, there's nothing illegal about any of the weapons they owned. Some of them may have required a Class 3 firearms license, but even this is not difficult (just expensive) for a law-abiding citizen to obtain.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: In some parts of the US, especially in far-out desert towns, home arsenals like this are the norm. There is really no limit on how many firearms or ammo American's can own. Machine guns are illegal, but can be permitted. If you have any semi-auto firearm, it's not hard to convert to a machine gun. Albeit, the firearm will fail apart fairly quickly from the abuse.
