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
The listing of Twentieth Century-Fox movie titles should not have had "The" as the first word of "Phantom of the Paradise", as this was only four words in its title. See more »
British cinema and video versions were deleted by 10 seconds by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) to remove shots of a woman being beaten during the extracts from Vice Squad, a crotch-grabbing shot from Dressed to Kill and footage of nunchuks during the extract from Ms .45. See more »
"Terror in the Aisles" is an interesting documentary about horror movies. Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen host this movie which feature scenes from 75 movies that deal with horror, science fiction, suspense, or crime that have scared moviegoers over the years. You get scenes from classic horror films such as "The Exorcist", "Psycho", "Halloween", and "Rosemary's Baby"; sci-fi flicks such as "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", "The Thing", and "Alien"; crime pictures such as "Nighthawks", and "Vice Squad"; and suspense thrillers such as "Wait Until Dark", "The Seduction", and "Klute". You even get to see a little comentary from the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock (scenes from a couple of his films are featured in here). Not a great documentary, but a good one.
