a horror fans dream
11 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

when i first seen terror in the aisles at the local movie theater i loved it,its an endless barrage of clips from;Halloween 1 and 2,texas chainsaw massacre,nighthawks,ms 45,carrie,the omen,a stranger is watching,jaws 1 and 2,marathon man,the howling,American werewolf in London,bride of Frankenstein,the wolf-man,and just so much more.the whole thing takes place in a movie theater as stars donald pleasense and Nancy Allen host it while they sit in the audience.and if you see the edited TV version they show more clips to make up for the cuts. but the clips shown in the TV version aren't in the end credits.lets see there's the fun-house,battlestar galactica(?)firstarter.it seems like another movie spliced in.it would be great to combine the TV version with the theatrical version on a special edition DVD,universal take note.there is no DVD for terror in the aisles just yet.but hopefully soon.for those of you who have not seen it,you are in for a treat. be ready for scenes of the scariest movies ever made.oh i left out the exorcist,poltergeist,alligator,food of the gods,alien,the shining,bug, Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein,invasion of the body snatchers,alone in the dark,and still many more.all i can say even if you can only find it on VHS,watch it,its just awesome.10 out of 10.
