Tremors 3: Back to Perfection

Burt returns to Perfection to find Desert Jack's Graboid Tour. Jack creates an amusement park related ride with the help of his buddy. One day a graboid eats his buddy and Jack escapes. Burt unloads hundreds of explosives but the government arrives and orders them not to kill graboids. Burt is eaten inside a barrel and tells Jack to lead the thing through his front gate. Jack does so and the graboid smashes itself into the concrete perimeter and Jack cuts it open to retrieve Burt. A scientist comes to them covered in C02 and says the Shriekers are there. He then dies. Burt, Jack, Jodi, and a Mexican go to kill the Shriekers. They find a flying creature who kills the Mexican.


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)
