Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors is the first book to cover the Tremors franchise in detail.
Film journalist Jonathan Melville spoke to more than 50 members of the cast and crew from the Tremors films and TV series, including Kevin Bacon, Michael Gross, Tremors director Ron Underwood, writers S.S. Wilson & Brent Maddock and executive producer, Gale Anne Hurd.
The book goes into detail on the early careers of Underwood, Wilson and Maddock, including their time as young filmmakers and work with Steven Spielberg, before covering their first hit film, Short Circuit. The book then looks at the development of Tremors, initially called Beneath Perfection, before detailing its production and reception by critics and fans.
Seeking Perfection also covers each of the sequels and the TV series, while looking ahead to 2015's Tremors 5: Bloodlines.
From the blurb:
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: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors 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, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, and the monster makers who brought the Graboids to life.
With newly-discovered photos from the Tremors set, storyboard excerpts and commentary on every episode of the TV series, plus a look at the 10-year journey from script to screen of the latest sequel, 2015’s Tremors 5: Bloodlines, Seeking Perfection is the ultimate, 100% unofficial, guide to Tremors!
