Third Tremors movie takes us back to the small Nevada town of Perfection where local resident and adventurer Burt Grummer returns after traveling abroad and killing carnivorous worms called "Graboids" (introduced in the first movie) and their offspring "Shriekers" (introduced in the second movie) to life in his home town and must deal with some crooked land developers, a thrill-seeking guy named Jack Sawyer looking for wealth in this potential tourist town, and eventually dealing with a new strain of Graboid worms that metamorph into their second Shrieker phase, and whom unexpectedly morph into their third stage for another harrowing battle against Burt and Jack in the desert surrounding the town.

Lame Sequel
7 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Perfection Valley, Nevada, Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) is paranoid with the Graboids and their evolution Shriekers. The small time crook Desert Jack Sawyer (Shawn Christian) swindles tourists with his partner simulating the existence of Graboids. When the deadly worms return to the town, Burt is forced to team-up with Jack and the trader Jodi Chang (Susan Chuang) to fight back and save their lives.

"Tremors 3: Back to Perfection" is a lame sequel straight to video of the franchise. This flick seems to be a Sci-fi production with terrible story and special effects. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "O Ataque dos Vermes Malditos 3: De Volta à Perfeição" ("The Attack of the Damned Worms 3: Back to Perfection")
