Tremors 3: Back to Perfection

Continuity mistake: When El Blanco is outside Burt's home, and leaves, there isn't any hole in the ground after him. Later, in the movie, when El Blanco gets underneath the earth, he leaves a big hole after him. Why wasn't it like that the first time?

Continuity mistake: When Burt is at the gas station, he makes change with the box top of the pump. he closes the box. Jack approaches to meet him and the shot cuts to Jack and the rock is all ready on top of the box. we cut back to Burt and he is placing the rock on top of the box.

Continuity mistake: When Burt's truck goes off the cliff and they go to the hill to find Miguel and his truck side-by-side. The truck now has different rims than before.

Continuity mistake: In the first Tremors when driving into Perfection the city limits sign list the elevation as 2135 feet. In this film the same sign shows the elevation at 2835 feet.


Continuity mistake: After Jack digs down to the graboid he throws the shovel down, the next shot the shovel has moved next to the chainsaw

Continuity mistake: When the graboid pops up surprising the group in the rocky area, it has a pair of animal legs in its mouth, and starts to swallow them. After an angle change, the legs are going into the graboid's mouth again.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When the gang first meets an ass-blaster, it flies into the sky, circles back and flies down towards them, quickly. The camera angle changes to its point of view, and for several seconds the view does not change - as if he'd just stopped in mid-air.


Continuity mistake: When the government guys come into the store in the evening they arrive, the wall clock shows 8:20, but the head guy's watch shows 6:28.


Continuity mistake: In the final scene, when Burt leaves Melvin on the rock with El Blanco nearby, Burt says goodbye to Melvin and begins driving away. His door is wide open as the car begins moving - the camera angle changes and it's now closed.


Factual error: Burt claims his watch updates its time "by connecting directly to the cesium clock in Colorado via ultrasonic frequency." Later the graboids home in on him by the ultrasonic sound emitted by his watch. Firstly, radio controlled watches update their time by receiving signals, but they don't emit any signals - the battery would be way too weak for two-way communication. Secondly, they work on radio waves, not sonic waves. Thirdly, if a hypothetical time transmitter did work on ultrasonics, the smallest distance between Colorado and Nevada is some 435 km (around 270 mi). An ultrasonic signal strong enough to reach that far would probably be deadly within a sizable range around the transmitter. (00:08:20)
