Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward star as two country handymen who lead a cast of zany characters to safety in this exciting sci-fi creature comedy. Just as Val McKee (Bacon) and Earl Bassett (Ward) decide to leave Perfection, Nevada, strange rumblings prevent their departure. With the help of a shapely seismology student (Finn Carter), they discover their desolate town is infested with gigantic man-eating creatures that live below the ground. The race is on to overcome these slimy subterraneans and find a way to higher ground, in this enjoyable thriller co-starring Michael Gross and Reba McEntire.

Modest monster flick is great fun for teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that, for the standards of science-fiction action, this is a rousing, well-made monster flick that's high on fun and excitement but low on terror and gore; there's some salty language, yes, and the monsters are dispatched in fairly spectacular, splattery fashion, but there's not a lot of blood, and the human victims of the creatures are dispatched in bloodless fashion. There's a lot of firearms action in the film - courtesy two "survivalist" characters -- but it's all unleashed against huge, scary worm-monsters who clearly have it coming.
