PG-13 | | Comedy, Horror
Natives of a small isolated town defend themselves against strange underground creatures which are killing them one by one.
Earl's revolver which he keeps in the glove compartment of his and Val's truck is a Colt Single Action army with a "7 inch barrel.
So we're stuck here. That pisses me off.
When the tractor 'decoy' is deployed, there are only two Graboids left in the valley and both are clearly chasing the tractor (Nancy even states: "This one's going too!"), yet there seems to be a third Graboid still stalking Burt's compound outside the town. However, in an earlier scene it takes a Graboid 1.5 minutes to go from Walter's store to Burt's basement. The tractor scene starts at least 2 minutes (could be several minutes longer because there is a scene cut in the middle) after the last sighting of the creature near the compound (when it destroyed Burt's truck), so it had more than enough time to get back to the town. It makes perfect sense for it to return, by the way - it clearly realized that humans won't be able to escape without the truck so there is no need to stay put.
The DVD version includes deleted scenes which include an alternate opening and an alternate ending.
