Storyline

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.

Goofs

Heavy on the 70's flicks but not bad overall.
5 April 2000 | by yenloSee all my reviews

This film about horror films runs a little over an hour long and tends to focus on the horror/slasher films of the 70's but is still fun to watch. Various clips from several popular films make up the show with Donald Pleasance as a sort of host/narrator as he sits in a crowded theater. Nancy Allen is also along as a hostess. A good warm up for your main horror feature if your inclined to rent a film in that genre for the night.
