Tremors 2

Trivia: The movie was shot in 1994 but shelved until 1996. Reportedly, this was partially because early test screenings got fantastic audience feedback, and the studio tinkered with throwing a little extra money at the movie and releasing it in theaters. However, they were unable to find a good spot in their release schedule, so it was eventually just released direct-to-video as they had initially intended.

Trivia: The design of the main arachnid-like "bugs" from "Starship Troopers" is actually a slightly modified version of an earlier unused design for the "Shriekers" from this film. Some of the same effects artists worked on both movies.

Trivia: In the first movie, Val and Earl talk about being on magazine covers like People and National Geographic. If you look in the background of Earl's home, you can see various magazine covers with Val and Earl on them - looks like they made it.

Trivia: Early in production, the film was reportedly intended to be a theatrical release as the first film became a huge hit on VHS and on cable. However, when original co-stars Kevin Bacon and Reba McEntire were unable to commit for various reasons, the budget was lowered and it became a direct-to-video feature. While this was initially disappointing, it paid off in the long run, as it launched a continuing franchise with a further five sequels and a popular (but short-lived) TV series.

Audio problem: In the scene where the Grabboid is pulling the truck with the chain attached and the guy is trying to shoot it, the gun noises do not match up with the muzzle flashes at all. At one point it is obvious he fires 2 shots, and yet 4 "bangs" can be heard.
