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.

More about the book
More than two years in the making, Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors features high-profile insight into Hollywood filmmaking from some of the biggest names in the industry.
Starting with co-creators S.S. Wilson, Brent Maddock and Ron Underwood, the book examines their love of B movies and student filmmaking that brought them to Hollywood, before they embarked on ambitious plans to take control of their own big-budget productions, starting with 1986's Short Circuit.
The story then moves to their time working with Steven Spielberg at Amblin, before delving into their plans to make a low budget horror movie set entirely during the daytime, something unheard of in the industry.
Author Jonathan Melville's interviews with executive producer Gale Ann Hurd (Aliens, The Walking Dead) and Universal's Jim Jacks offer rare insight into the minds of those working in Hollywood in the 1980s, with their candid opinions revealing what really goes on behind studio doors.
Seeking Perfection goes on to bring the views of actors Kevin Bacon, Michael Gross, Reba McEntire, Ariana Richards, Charlotte Stewart, Tony Genaro - plus many behind the scenes crew from the first film - into the story, revealing the trials and tribulations of making a monster movie in the desert.
With dozens more interviews covering all of the sequels and the troubled TV series, this reference guide is a must-read for anyone with an interest in filmmaking, screenwriting and TV production.
