The dish receives the transmission of an alien life form meant to be discarded and a freakishly hungry life form is transported into their home wreaking havoc and eating anyone it can find.

Terrorvision begins with a promising yet silly soundtrack and progresses into plot setup. From there the film presents lame character development and plot setup indicating the possibility for some good, clean, campy fun. Sadly Terrorvision disappoints and rather than campy it comes across as cheaply produced with a serious lack of depth. Those who can make it through the entire film will be presented with an ending that is a sweet release from the torture.
Acting was a mess with Graham, Rey, and Remsen who all showed potential in their careers being unable to save this one with mediocre delivery. The rest of the supporting cast felt unpracticed, unpolished, and lacking from most aspects.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were campy, cheap, but felt appropriate and were surprisingly interesting. Effects also felt cheap and immature. Dialogue was campy and without depth at all. Sound was good and the soundtrack was somewhat interesting.
Overall Terrorvision is a bad attempt at classic 80’s campy comedy that fails from most every perspective. Even die-hard B-movie fans may find this one difficult to enjoy. Pass on Terrorvision and find something with a bit more quality.
With mild foul language, adult themes and activities, mild nudity, creature violence and gore save this one for the oldest teens and above.
Terrorvision is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theaters.
