Seeking Perfection by Jonathan Melville

Welcome to Perfection, Nevada
A throwback to the kind of sci-fi B movies that had long gone out of fashion, Tremors was a box office flop that became a home video phenomenon, spawning multiple sequels and a short-lived TV series.
Seeking Perfection is the first book to go beneath the surface of the Tremors franchise, featuring new interviews with more than 50 cast and crew members, including stars Kevin Bacon and Michael Gross, director Ron Underwood, executi

Alright, so. This is “Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors”.

The words 'unofficial guide' do not always inspire confidence, but happily this book is good, and clearly a labour of love for the author – and really, much of the joy of the book comes from the author clearly and obviously being a huge fan of the movie, and anyone who grew up in the age of the VCR, and did the whole ritual browsing of rental places for anything new and exciting, will know exactly where this guy is coming

Excellently written book and full of information!

Seeking Perfection covers each of the sequels and the TV series, while looking ahead to 2015's Tremors 5: Bloodlines.

I'm a huge Tremors fan so when I came upon this book, I was thrilled. Whether you're a casual fan of the movies and tv show or are obsessed with them, this book is made for you. It's filled with behind-the-scenes information about all the movies, including the upcoming Tremors 5, and the tv series. It even reveals the backstage turmoil surrounding the Tremors tv series and why it only lasted one season.

This is a must for Tremors fans! Fun read, full of interesting little facts. Almost half of the book is devoted to the first movie - rightly so. It is generally well written and will leave you wanting to rewatch the movies :)
