Horror History: TerrorVision was Released on This Day in 1986

One of the quintessential “so-bad-it’s-good” cult horror movies from the 20th Century is TerrorVision, released on this day in 1986. TerrorVision was made by Empire International Pictures, the production company owned by Charles Band prior to Full Moon.

If it’s been a while, or if you never experienced the irreverent horror/sci-fi insanity for yourself, check out the trailer and synopsis for TerrorVision below.

A family’s new satellite TV system starts receiving signals from another planet, and soon it becomes the passageway to an alien world.

TerrorVision is written and directed by Ted Nicolaou; the film stars Diane Franklin, Mary Woronov, and Gerrit Graham.
