Trivia

When Burt is in Chang's Market talking to Jodi he says: 'Are you trying to turn this valley into a theme park?', to which Jodi responds: 'Well, it worked for your friends Earl and Grady!'. This refers to Grady's ideas for a Graboid-related theme park in "Tremors II: Aftershocks". Her comment also confirms that Earl and Grady did indeed open such an attraction. See more »

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")
