Look Out Above! (Tremors 3: Back to Perfection, 2001)

tremors-3This film was directed by Brent Maddock, one of the other creators of the original film.  And as with the second film?  They try for a twist with another type of monster.  It is yet another stage in the life of the graboid.

This time around, they make Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) the center of the film.  It makes sense, he was a popular character in the franchise.  The film also managed to bring Tony Genaro,  Ariana Richards (Jurassic Park), Charlotte Stewart and Robert Jayne back to reprise their roles from the first film.

The town of Perfection has been running on the graboid phenomenon, much to Burt’s chagrin.  He has no respect for those trying to exploit the Graboids and feels the best thing is to simply kill them.  Which is hard, since they are being treated as potential endangered species.

The film relies on some of the tricks from the first two, but they add a new twist, graboid monsters that can fly.  It is close in overall quality to the second film.  Decent, but not quite reaching the original’s level of entertainment value.
