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. I can't believe some people don't like this film. It's easily the second best entry in the series, beat only by the original tremors. Michael Gross is still good as gun-ho burt gummer and the new supporting cast (As well as some familiar faces from the first tremors film) all give 150%. Special effects look very good for what they must have cost and good old perfection valley hasn't changed... 8/10.

About the DVD: Universal studios has released a very impressive DVD for this third sequel in the tremors franchise. Sound and picture are crisp as one could wish, stereo surround soundtrack is wel-mixed and the picture is spotless as far as I could see. For extras were are treated to a excellent "making-off" featurette which has cast interviews, on location footage, special effects brake-downs, and more. It's a excellent in-depth production featurette thats lends much respect to the DVD. we also get a trailer, production notes, cast and crew notes, and more. Now that's a DVD for ya! My rating for the DVD: 10/10.
