No big budget bigtime movie company sponsored it, ex. Paramount or something, they didn't have the money to make it go bigtime, my guess anyway.

Re: why didn't screamers

What kind of credit are you talking about? Did it inspire a new load of filmmakers? Did it herald a new wave of filmmaking? Was it "deep?"

Wait, this is the one with the Lance Henriksen sound/lookalike isn't it? With those sand things?

I thought it was a really enjoyable movie. (but then, I likes Tremors, Phantoms, etc. .) I also dont think it got proper credit. This flick blows Tremors out of the water anysay, but Tremors is the one w/a miniseries now! give me a break.

Tremors owened! I absolutly loved Burt in the second movie "I am COMPLETELY OUT OF AMMO! That's never happened to me before."


Screamers was a good movie from what I remember, I havent watched it in years. I seem to remember something about wrist bracelets.

Re: why didn't screamers

I think (if I remember correctly) that Screamers was far more "scientific" and futuristic. Tremors was earthbound fun (I agree Kier--It was good), but Screamers was scifi intense. I think it was a Prison Planet, and they were transporting prisoners or something. They ended up having to arm the prisoners (??) or am I remembering the wrong movie?

Its cool movie. Its based on a Philip K. D*ck story which I have read, the movie is true to the story for the most part.
