The 1990 film Tremors, starring Kevin Bacon and a pack of ravenous gigantic burrowing worms, is a monster-movie classic. But have you ever wondered if any real animals inspired these fictional worms? Join Fernbank Museum of Natural History and Emory paleontologist Anthony (Tony) Martin, author of The Evolution Underground and Dinosaurs Without Bones, for a screening of Tremors, followed by a lively discussion of science related to the film.
