The town of Perfection has a stated population of 14 at the beginning of the film. The inhabitants are Edgar Deems, Old Fred, Nancy & Mindy Sterngood, Miguel, Walter Chang, Val McKee, Earl Bassett, Burt & Heather Gummer, Nestor Cunningham, and Melvin & his parents. Many often mistakenly forget to list Melvin's parents and instead replace them with the doctor and his wife, but the doctor and wife would not count as they had just moved to Perfection and weren't yet official residents.

Good cast, good story, good movie.
Go figure, but this movie was not exactly successful at the box office, I am guessing it made a lot on video however. It has spawned two sequels and even a television series. This one though was a fun movie to watch thanks in large part to its cast. Kevin Bacon is good as the lead and Fred Ward is also very good. They play a couple of friends living in a very small town in the middle of nowhere. There only wish is to get out of this place and get somewhere big, unfortunately something big is just under their feet. Seems there are these snake creatures living underground and their going on a killing spree. They seemed to have chased an old man up a power line where he died of thirst, then they take out a farmer and his livestock, and then they take out these two working on the side of the road. This movie is rather bloody considering it is a pg-13 movie. The town meets and we are introduced to more colorful characters like the survivalist couple, the stingy grocery owner, and the annoying kid who loves to play a prank or two. There is also a student there studying seismology or something and everyone turns to her for the answers. This movie has a lot of comedy and some great scenes and is an all around enjoyable movie.
