A weekend of weirdness on home video

HOLLYWOOD, California (CNN) -- It's a weird weekend in home video, with two offbeat offerings hitting the shelves.

Tremors

A few years ago, the monster movie satire "Tremors" vanished at the box office, then went underground to become a whopping big hit in home video. Now, "Tremors Two: Aftershocks" is skipping the cinema and going straight home. Fred Ward returns in the sequel as a grizzled monster hunter, and Michael Gross is also back, packing more firepower than could be considered wise -- even against gooey Precambrian creatures.

X-files

Both the original, and the aftershock, are highly recommended.

Unless you're a Fox fan, you might mistake this week's other offering for "America's Most Paranormal Home Videos." However, dedicated Filomaniacs will be happy to know that the "X-Files" is coming to videocassette. Each tape has two digitally remastered episodes and a new introduction from Chris Carter, the show's creator.

The truth may or may not be out there, but the videocassettes definitely are.
