Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen, while sitting in a theater full of annoying dorks, narrate over a bunch of horror/thriller movie clips. Despite the movie selection being all from mainstream stuff TERROR IN THE AISLES is a quick and fun introduction to pre-1984 horror.  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!
