‘Allan’ from Stampede stopped in to let us know that the upcoming “Tremors 4” has a title. “The name of the next film is Tremors Original Showdown. It looks great. Everyone seems very happy with it.”, he says. Better still, there’s an ‘Original Showdown’ website up. It’s still under production so a few of the areas on it aren’t happening just yet – but the introduction, photo gallery, and a couple of spots seem to be functional. For the dilettante, “Tremors Original Showdown” is a prequel to the previous movie, set 100 years before the first Graboid was spotted. Michael Gross stars. Ok, onto today’s miscellaneous bits of whose, what’s, where’s and on whose ground…
