Donald Pleasance and Nancy Allen take us through some of Hollywood's most terrifying moments in horror history in this anthology, which features several of the finest science fiction, crime drama and horror films of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Included are Night of the Living Dead (1968), Psycho (1960), Jaws (1975), Jaws 2 (1978), The Fog (1980), Halloween (1978) and Halloween II (1981), as well as countless others. Blood and gore abound making the film not very much for the squeamish. Written by
As a study of human nature, Terror in the Aisles is a fail; as a fun trip down memory lane for a horror fan, it fares little better.
Any serious investigation into the world of fear cinema is welcome, but Terror in the Aisles' gimmicky narration, delivered by Donald Pleasance and Nancy Allen sat amidst an irritating fake movie audience, is far from informative, giving very little genuine insight into why people love to be scared at the movies.
Ignore the incessant, mindless jibber jabber from the two hosts, and what remains is a compilation tape consisting largely of an uninspired choice of classic clips, along with some downright oddball choices (Midnight Express, Nighthawks), all edited together in such a way so as to rob them of their original impact (there's also a noticeable lack of captions, leaving less knowledgeable viewers in the dark about the origin of each clip).
To be fair, I enjoyed Terror in the Aisles more when I was a teenager and had yet to see some of the films included, but a lot of blood has passed under the bridge since then; watching it today proved to be an extremely dull experience (except for the exploding head from Scanners, which is always amazing to see!).
