Stan (Gerrit Graham) installs a state-of-art satellite TV system for his dysfunctional family. However, he accidentally picks up a signal from another planet and his television system becomes the gateway between the two planets. A ravenous alien creature comes to his apartment and only their son Sherman (Chad Allen) sees the monster, but his parents do not believe in the boy.

"TerrorVision" is a cult-trash from the 80´s and a highly entertaining sci-fi. The characters and the situations are hilarious but maybe the funniest scene is Medusa meeting the last hope to save Earth, Pluthar. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Visão do Terror" ("The Terror Vision")

Kitsch. That Is All I Can Say

When Stanley Putterman (Gerrit Graham) installs a brand new, state-of-the-art satellite dish in his backyard, his family ends up getting a lot more than just ESPN. Unfortunately for Stanley, his satellite is a perfect receptor for a load of extraterrestrial garbage that just happened to be converted into energy and zapped into his backyard: a hideous, two-ton alien blob with eyes and a never-ending appetite.

The real star of this film is Diane Franklin, as big-haired Suzy Putterman. Is she a cross between Madonna and Cyndi Lauper? I think so. I loved her in "Amityville II" and I love her here. And her boyfriend, played by Jon Gries, is a die-hard WASP fan! Hooray for a decade when MTV still existed.

The humor is odd and very sexual (though not dirty),with "Do you mind if I grab another Heinie?", the introduction of lizard tail jerky (the perfect survival food because more tails will grow back) and a reference to swinging as "that Japanese thing where the aliens steal the Earth women to populate Mars".

The film is very kitschy, and seems to have a 1960s Cold War mentality. The outfits are very 60s, at least on the parents. And then the grandfather is a conspiracy theorist with a bunker, calling to mind the Cuban Missile Crisis. He is a survivalist not just when he needs to be, but in ever moment of his life.

The film is produced by Charles Band, his father Albert Band, with music from brother Richard Band and released by their Empire Pictures. I continue to wonder why the films of the 1980s that Band put out are better than the fifty things he has done since then... it is a mystery.

Wacky 80's sci-fi/horror comedy kitsch

The madcap Putterman family find themselves being terrorized by a ravenous people-eating alien beast that gets beamed to Earth through their television set. Writer/director Ted Nicolaou pokes incredibly broad and cheerfully zany fun at America's obsession with trashy television culture, gung-ho survivalists, and kinky swingers. Moreover, it's overacted with tremendous histrionic zest by an enthusiastic cast: Gerrit Graham as kooky electronics whiz Stanley, Mary Woronov as sexy fitness buff Raquel, Diane Franklin as vibrant punkette Suzy, Bert Remsen as feisty old-timer Grandpa, Chad Allen as the spunky Sherman, Jonathan Gries as dim-witted heavy metalhead O.D., Alejandro Rey as suavely smarmy homosexual Spiro, Randi Brooks as the ditsy Cherry, Sonny Carl Davis as luckless TV repairman Norton, and Jennifer Richards as alluring, but abrasive horror show hostess Medusa. The tacky (not so) special effects, priceless zingy dialogue, goofy monster (designed by John Carl Buechler),catchy'n'groovy theme song, colorful and eccentric caricature characters, energetic off-the-wall tone, and blithely inane humor all add substantially to this picture's infectiously campy charm. Romano Albani's garish cinematography gives this movie an appropriately bright and cartoonish look. Richard Band's lively score hits the spirited spot. Sure, this flick is pretty silly and ridiculous, but it nonetheless still sizes up as a total loopy hoot just the same.
