Tearin it up!
22 August 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I just got through watching this flick and it was amazing!!! I aint big on straight to video myself, but this knocked my socks off. Some of my friends rented this with a bunch of other movies, which were all crap. So eventually we get to Tremors 3, I laughed naturally cause I had seen the first one, and it was pretty good but to think after one straight to video sequel this one could even be bareable would have been insane of me. Yet still be friends popped it in and suddenlly I found my self glued to the TV, its funny, its scary, its action, its adventure, its everything you could want in a REALLY FUN MOVIE!!! So listen up, even though from the outside it may look cheesy, DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER, or a movie by its box. Check this one out, I promise you wont regret it.
