From small flying robots to giant underground monsters! See these two great films with one of the minds behind their creation. S.S. Wilson has written, directed, and produced dozens of films. His science fiction prowess has withstood the test of time as we celebrate the 20 Year Anniversary of TREMORS. SS Wilson will be in attendance before the screenings and for a Q and A between screenings, hosted by Scott Tobias of the A.V. Club

In 1983 SS Wilson and Brent Maddock sold their spec script SHORT CIRCUIT. Directed by John Badham, it was their first produced feature. In quick succession, they wrote SHORT CIRCUIT 2, *BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED, GHOST DAD; and served as consultants on Steven Spielberg’s animated THE LAND BEFORE TIME.

In 1990 they sold another spec, TREMORS, on which they also served as producers. Directed by fellow USC alum Ron Underwood and starring Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Michael Gross and Reba McEntire, the film became a revered cult classic, spawning three sequels and a TV series.

Wilson and Maddock joined with Nancy Roberts (producer of all the Tremors sequels) and Ron Underwood to form Stampede Entertainment in 1992. The first Stampede project was HEART AND SOULS at Universal, starring Robert Downey, Jr.

The TREMORS franchise grew with Wilson debuting as director on TREMORS 2: AFTERSHOCKS for Universal Family Home Entertainment. During the same time period, he and Maddock wrote the green-light draft of Warner Bros. 1999 tent pole release, WILD WILD WEST, starring Will Smith. In 2001 it was TREMORS 3: BACK TO PERFECTION with Stampede partner Brent Maddock directing and Wilson handling second unit. 2004 saw both the debut of TREMORS: THE SERIES for the Sci-Fi Network (Wilson co-created and co-executive produced with Maddock and Roberts) and TREMORS 4: THE LEGEND BEGINS, with Wilson again at the helm.

In addition to screenwriting, Wilson is branching out into fiction. His first book, an action-adventure tale titled TUCKER’S MONSTER, will be published in 2010.
