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.

An example to all who would make sequels...
14 April 2002 | by (Fresno, CA) – See all my reviews

I never saw the original TREMORS in the theatre, but caught it on USA Network and SCI-FI Channel...and see it and the sequel TREMORS II every chance I can. Each film is little more than pure fun for fans of monster and suspense films, but with TREMORS III, the whole package is nearly complete.

There are many of the characters from the first film and, of course, Burt Gummer...but unlike any other sequel I have seen to date, this one actually builds from the continuity of all the other films, from the books being sold to the bottle of booze in the wall to the closing scene, and the tone of the film is absolutely pure to the originals...something that can be said of only a very few sequels.

I would *strongly* recommend screenwriters, persons who adapt from prior works, directors and producers to see these films as a guide on "how to do it right".

I agree with another reviewer...it was a big mistake not to have released this to theatre. And if S.S. Wilson can do it, he should go ahead with the logical fourth and final sequel from this. Who knows, it might make for an interesting reunion movie, too.
