I know that I, for one, will never look at my satellite dish the same way again. On second thought, yes I will.

It's at least worthy of a watch if only for its sense of humor that teeters back and forth between surreal and idiotic.

The trashy film is made for those who like bad films.

Audience Reviews for TerrorVision

The theme song alone warns you of the ridiculousness you are about to witness. TerrorVision is a little bit over the top, but pretty entertaining with impressive monster design, cheesy comedy, and fun gore.

Unique horror comedy that gives the viewer a truly eccentric viewing experience, TerrorVision is one of those movies that relishes in delivering so bad it's good entertainment that is purely designed for B movie fans looking for their fix in low budget horror schlock. This is a film that has over the top acting to the point where it's laughably bad, but there's a charming quality to the film that you simply can't turn away. The film delivers in the gross out shocks and if that is what you're looking for, then this is the film for you. There's plenty of gore here to please fans of these types of movies, and although a heavily flawed movie, this is enjoyable for what it is. This is not a film for everyone as it is really quite ridiculous. However if you're looking for a good laugh out loud, stupid horror comedy, then by all means, TerrorVision is a film that you should see for a night of bad movie fun. This is cheesy, tongue in cheek horror. If films like this are your cup of tea, then give it a shot. However for fans looking for something good to watch, they'll sadly be disappointed with this one as it is low budget trash at its finest. For B movie fans, TerrorVision is a good little gem of a movie worth seeing for mindless entertainment fun. Don't expect anything truly terrifying as you won't find anything here. Go into this one with an open mind and you may enjoy it. The film really shines with the effects and monster carnage, which some characters are totally oblivious until it's too late. As a B movie, this one is so bad it's good, but as a classic of the genre, this doesn't cut it. Expect mindless ridiculous horror with cringe worthy acting and dialogue and have fun with it.

Completly ridiculous and over the top sleazy b-movie from the 80s. Everything is exaggerated to 373%, characters are all complete morons but everything is laughable from start to finnish on how awful it all is.
