Tremors 3: Back to Perfection

Overview

The killer Graboids are back in Tremors 3: Back to Perfection, the second sequel to the popular comedy horror series Tremors. Universal presents Tremors 3: Back to Perfection in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and has done a very nice job on this straight-to-DVD title.

Overview

The killer Graboids are back in Tremors 3: Back to Perfection, the second sequel to the popular comedy horror series Tremors. Universal presents Tremors 3: Back to Perfection in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and has done a very nice job on this straight-to-DVD title. While there certainly are some imperfections in the image (some dark-looking shots and grain), colors are bold overall and black levels even. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is a lot of fun. Directional effects are generous, with the shrieks of the monsters coming in loud and clear. Also included on this disc are French subtitles and English captions. Disappointingly, Tremors 3: Back to Perfection's only extra features come in the form of a "Spotlight on Location" documentary that is interesting but mainly promotional; theatrical trailers for Tremors, Tremors 2: Aftershocks, and Tremors 3: Back to Perfection; some cast and filmmaker information; and some relatively thin production notes. Although the extra features don't dig very far under the surface to bring up anything substantial, the video and audio portions make up for any lost supplements.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This direct-to-video sequel has all the pluses going for it of the previous adventures, not the least of which include good energy, funny dialogue, effective special effects, and a cast that is clearly enjoying hearty bonhomie and esprit du corps. It was daring for director Brent Maddock to enhance the creatures by giving them dragon-like wings, but it works very well and the computer generated effects are convincingly integrated. Michael Gross, game as always as the goofy Gummer, and Shawn Christian, who is a manly version of Greg Kinnear, make for an affable team. The overall production is imbued with wry wit and a giddy silliness that lurks below the surface like the Graboids, springing up to catch you with an unexpected joke. But when it comes time to portray the monsters as lethal creatures, there's tension enough to build suspense. One wonders how long the franchise can continue, but at least these three chapters have proven to be superior low-budget horror-comedies.

    the graboids are back...and i love it!!!!

    the only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is i didn't like the newest sidekick as much as Val or Grady. the movie was just as much fun as the first two!! a great way to spend the afternoon...watching the town of perfection save itself from graboids, shreikers, and butt-blasters!!!!

    Another Imaginative Addition to the Tremors Saga

    The humorous Tremors series continues unabated with the latest instalment 'Back to Perfection'. Whilst it keeps to the rules set up in the original, it alsocomes up with new twists that keep the story exciting and fresh. Like a lower budget version of 'Evolution' (but with more laughs), the Tremors have adapted again, this time they can fly!! Give this series a budget of $50 million next time out, they deserve to be able to show us what they can do with it. I have a feeling we won't be dissapointed. I have only one more request for the next instalment. Bring back Fred Ward!!!

    Another winning installment in the Tremors series

    The only reason this movies doesn't get 5 stars in my book is the absence of Fred Ward. Other than that, the writers and producers of Tremors have done it again. Characters you either love or hate, new twists in the evolution of the Graboids and plenty of humor along the way. If you enjoyed the first two Tremors, don't miss this one.
