Donald Pleasance and Nancy Allen take us through some of Hollywood's most terrifying moments in horror history in this anthology, which features many of the finest science fiction, crime drama and horror films of the 1930s through 1980s. Included are Night of the Living Dead (1968), Psycho (1960), Rosemary's Baby (1968), The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), Jaws (1975), Jaws 2 (1978), The Fog (1980), Halloween (1978) and Halloween II (1981), as well as countless others. Furthermore, legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock discusses his visionary ideas on creating suspense. Blood and gore abound making this movie not very much for the squeamish audiences.Written by
As you watch the screen, your heart begins to beat faster. There's a fluttering in the pit of your stomach. Your throat feels dry, your palms damp. Suddenly, a chill moves down your spine. You clutch the person next to you. You tell yourself: 'It's only a movie, it's only a movie...' But sooner or later, you must leave the theater, perhaps alone. See more »
What can I really say about a film that dedicates it's running time to showcasing clips from some of the scariest movies, intercepted, by two horror icons, sitting in a almost empty cinema, passing on their remarks. Not much. Why make a film like this, or what was the point to it? It's a money stealer, robbing people of their time and money, with endless clips from past flicks, who many of course, would of been familiar with, and they're not just horror flicks. May'be too, on the flipside, the film would have sold scenes to budding moviegoers, who hadn't seen that particular film, if enticing them, to see it. Whatever, the movie does work wonderfully to terrifying effect, with some thought provoking commentary, but it can't hide the fact, that all it is, is scenes from past movies, strung together, where as a films, such as Creepshow is a film, constructed of original scary moments. Although TITA (great title) does amazingly work, where these days it wouldn't, the best bits are the icons delivering their after words.
