This extremely well cast and written spin-off of the ever popular Tremor movies chronicles the unusual events of the residents of Perfection, a microscopic community in Nevada, which seems to have Halloween everyday of the year. The Graboids, and their vicious offspring Shriekers and Ass-Blasters, pay regular visits to make havoc in this once serene little valley.

Halloween Television - Tremors the SeriesThe natives of Perfection include the enigmatic survivalist Burt Gummer, the stuck in the sixties, hippy-type Nancy Sterngood, and grocery store owner Jodi Chang, all of whom are just trying to make a living.

New to Perfection is handsome tour guide Tyler Reed and Rosalita Sanchez, a bold and beautiful young woman with a secret past and finally government representative W.D. Twitchell, who keeps an eye on the whole situation.

The Cast of Tremors the SeriesUnfortunately for the residents, these creatures are on the government's protected species list and are grudgingly allowed to live in Perfection Valley, as long as they don't harm the pesky creatures, particularly the giant Graboid known as "El Blanco."

As if this were not enough, a new complication has reared its ugly head in the form of an ultra top-secret government lab that was established in the valley more than thirty years ago, that has now accidentally unleashed a gene-blending substance known as "Mixmaster" into the local ecosystem, occasionally causing various animal and insect mutations that can recombine them into new and most often extremely dangerous monsters.

Unfortunately, the SciFi Channel did not see fit to renew this exceptional series, in spite of high ratings and a very devoted following. So, we only have thirteen episodes to cherish.
