While SyFy’s Tremors series creeps steadily up on us (filming on the pilot wrapped in November), the sixth film in the monster franchise is on its way too. With a release scheduled for May 2018, the film now has an official title, Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell.
The film once again see the return of actor Michael Gross as survivalist Burt Gummer, who has been with the series since the 1990 original, and Scream’s Jamie Kennedy – who joined with 2015’s Tremors 5: Bloodlines – as Gummer’s son and sidekick Travis B. Welker. Co-starring are straight-to-video regular Tanya van Graan (Death Race 2, Lost Boys: The Thirst) and Greg Kriek (Momentum). Director Don Michael Paul (Half Past Dead, Lake Placid: The Final Chapter) returns to the helm, having directed the series’ fifth entry.
Burt Gummer (Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Kennedy) find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters when they head to Canada to investigate a series of deadly giant-worm attacks. Arriving at a remote research facility in the artic tundra, Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is sidelined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom — but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid!
