Whenever there's an earthquake or a particularly large MonsterOfTheWeek coming, this will often be demonstrated subtly (or not so subtly) by showing a small object (like a lamp, or a small pile of coins) vibrating, then jumping around as the vibrations get stronger (or the monster gets closer). Alternatively, this can be done with ripples in a pool of water. Sometimes the camera starts shaking [[StarTrekShake (and possibly the people, too)]], for added emphasis.

Made easier in console video games by the vibrating "rumble" motors built-in to most controllers.

* ''Film/{{Tremors}}'': The first movie runs on this all the way long, as vibrations signal the approaching subterranean monsters.
* ''Film/Tremors2Aftershocks'':
** Subverted delightfully, with sheets of metal instead of water. As the movement gets more violent, and the heroes assume the monster just out of view has to be huge to be making it, so they point their guns higher and higher... until a little beast about half their size hops into view. What's even better is that the camera shot is set up so that the ''audience'' fully expects it as well, waiting for the giant inserted-by-special-effects monster to come lumbering around the corner of the building.
** Also subverted when the approaching rumbles turned out to be [[spoiler:Burt Gummer arriving in a heavy truck loaded with weaponry]].
