In 2001, a Tremors video game was announced to be in production. Being developed by Rock Solid Games, Tremors: The Game was said to be an third person survival horror action shooter that also incorporated heavy open map sandbox style game play elements as well. Set for a December 2003 release on PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, and PC, the game was quietly canceled in the summer of 2003 due to a "lack of fan base for the game" and fears that the game would severely under-perform. Little is known about the game, except actors Michael Gross, Frank Welker, Keith David, and Shawn Christian have all said to have completed at least a good portion of their voice acting, and several character, vehicle, and monster models have been released online. Other than that, barely anything is known about what the game would've involved, and no test footage of the game has ever been released. See more »
Burt says the ultrasonic frequency of his watch is what attracts the Graboid to him, but the watch only receives at that frequency to maintain its time, it doesn't transmit. See more »

C'mon Burt, what do you say?
I say I'll give you a ten-second head start.

Tremors came out when I was ten. It is one of my all time favorite horror/comedies with it's sharp, script, funny (intentionally) dialogue, and likeable characters that you can identify with. It seems like, whether people are horror fans are not, they enjoyed Tremors.
In 1995, a Kevin Bacon-less sequel went straight to video and found it's audience very easily. The effects were just as good, it had two major characters returning, and the script was a lot of fun and had a few suprises.
When I heard that there was going to be a Tremors 3, I was kind of excited but a little concerned too. Most franchises tend to tank out by part three. Well, not the case here. In Tremors 3: Back to Perfection, you get Michael Gross as Bert Gummer returning to his hometown of Perfection. Anyone who saw the first two remembers Bert as the gun-wielding, overly paranoid, survivalist who always seems to have the right gear for the job. Bert has made a career of hunting these things over the last decade and now he feels that it is time to head home for a while. Little does he know it, things aren't going to be just that easy.
I won't give away much for the plot, but I will say that this is every bit as enjoyable as the first one. If you enjoyed the first and second, then stick this in your DVD player and kick-back with a beer. Also, it's PG rated. A lot of people are scared off by this, but let me tell ya, there's nothing here to worry about. Just a good clean (is sometimes slimy) time. Check this one out and hope for a Part 4.
