Synopsis: A silver mine in Rejection Nevada has to close when the miners start to get killed off in droves, forcing the owner, one Hiram Gummer, to come out to investigate.

Reaction: For being a third sequel and a made-for-tv movie, the creators could have done much worse than this one which brings something new to the table simply by showing infant graboids and a 19th century community that has never heard of these monsters before.

Personal Rating: 6/10
