    Straight to Video (2 Oct 01)

    The only regular character remaining from the previous movies is Burt Gummer, the gun nut. It has been 11 years since the Graboids were wiped out in Prefection valley, Nevada. A young entrepreneur is running fake Graboid safaris. Predictably, a real Graboid turns up.

    Tremors Tremors 4: In The Beginning
    Shown

    Back in the days of the Wild west, Burt Gummer's ancestor (who looks just like him) bought a silver mine. Naturally, the mine was in a remote valley in Nevada. And when he tries to re-open the mine, graboids start to eat people. The answer is to hire gunslinger Billy Drago ( Vamp ).

    This does not entirely fit as a prequel. Wasn't Burt a survivalist as a response to his time in the Big City? How come he never knew about his ancestor's encounters with the graboids? And of course, this precludes the Mixmaster origin story from the TV show.
