TERROR IN THE AISLES (1984)

Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen sit in a theater full of annoying fucks and narrate over a bunch of horror and thriller movie clips. Despite the movie selection being all mainstream stuff TERROR IN THE AISLES is a quick and fun introduction to pre-1984 horror. I've already seen all of the movies shown, but I still enjoyed the whole thing.

Most of the movies selected are exactly what you would expect (THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, HALLOWEEN, THE EXORCIST), but there's a few oddballs that make no sense: NIGHTHAWKS, FAHRENHEIT 451, MIDNIGHT EXPRESS and TO CATCH A THIEF. What the hell?

If you're a horror fan then it's worth checking out. The actual stuff shown in the theater probably takes up less than 5 minutes, but the clips are a fun trip down memory lane.

Update: TERROR IN THE AISLES is now available as an extra on the beautiful HALLOWEEN II Blu-Ray!
