Earl Bassett, now a washed-up ex-celebrity, is hired by a Mexican oil company to eradicate a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only one with a new battle plan.
The new sequel finds Burt Gummer, who's dying from Graboid poison, and his son Travis at a remote research station in Canada's Nunavut Territory, where they must go up against a new batch of Graboids to save Burt's life.

Perfection Valley, Nevada is a quaint little town. The inhabitants live peaceful, tranquil lives. Most of the time. Perfection is home to the Graboid, El Blanco. El Blanco is a thirty-foot ... See full summary »
Based on the events in Perfection, Nevada, this story takes place on a different continent. When a small group of people take a vacation trip, they soon find themselves followed by a strange underground creature.
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 meta-morph 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.Written by
Third movie in the Tremors series returns back to the town that started it all: Perfection, Nevada. Returning from the previous two movies is Michael Gross as Burt Gummer. Gross got as much mileage as he could out of the role of Burt but it's admittedly wearing a little thin by this point. Also returning is Ariana Richards, who was a little girl in the first Tremors movie. She's all grown up here and it's cool to see her back. She was probably my favorite part of the movie. This is a mostly enjoyable monster flick but not as good as the second movie and not even on the same planet as the highly entertaining first Tremors. This one relies heavily on comedy and likability of its cast, which is probably smart considering the obvious effects limitations. This was made for video, after all. This is also the movie that introduces the poorly-conceived "Ass Blaster" Graboid. I guess they didn't use that in the title for fear it would be confused with a porno.
