A rogue signal from space unleashes monsters and mayhem out of a kooky family's TV set in 1986's TERRORVISION! Charles Band and Empire Pictures deliver this zany Horror Comedy from another dimension, featuring make-up and special effects work by GHOULIES designer John Carl Buechler. Ted Nicolaou uses the film's silly premise to poke fun at 80's pop-culture, playfully ripping on everyone from Cyndi Lauper, E.T., and Elvira while paying homage to Science Fiction classics like the Japanese space epic THE MYSTERIANS and INVADERS FROM MARS. Despite all of the on-screen insanity, a deeper message can be found behind the action and gore that speaks against the destruction of the family unit as a result of television's gripping hold. Each of the characters ham it up as the plot takes one ridiculous turn after another. The giant googly-eyed monster for which the film is most fondly remembered liquidates its victims before slurping them up with its monstrous tongue. TERRORVISION's gooey deaths and off-the-wall humor make it a campy cult-classic that 80's fans are sure to enjoy!
