The film that helped to create a monster
2 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the film I credit with helping to mold me into the depraved little horror movie ghoul that I am today. Released at the height of the Video Craze "Terror on Tape" is a shameless vehicle for the now defunct Continental Video. In the spirit of classics like "Terror in the Aisles" "Filmgore" and "Coming Soon" it contains numerous clips from some of the most infamous horror flicks ever made. All horror fans know that during this time period, in the realms of horror, there were several fondly remembered and now bankrupt video distributors of the time who specialized in our genre. Names like Vestron Video, Gorgon Video, Wizard Video and of course Continental come to mind and bring forth a flood of blood soaked memories. This particular film introduced me, as a second generation fan, to the legendary Herschell Gordon Lewis with clips from his classic "Gore Trilogy" ("Blood Feast", "2000 Maniacs", and "Color Me Blood Red"). It also introduced me to one of my personal favorites "Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn", brought the hidden horror gem "Scalps"into my life, subjected me to the pure insanity, horror and hilarity that is "Vampire Hookers" and it conned me into rushing out to rent hideous cinematic upchuck such as "The Eerie Midnight Horror Show", and "To The Devil A Daughter". Of course, I can never forgive "Terror on Tape" for introducing the hideous film maker's abomination known as "Cathy's Curse" (Why oh why does this retched film keep getting randomly thrust into my face?) "Terror on Tape" changed my life and if you can locate a copy I can promise it will do the same for you!
