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.

The best collage of movies ever put together
12 March 2004 | by DaBears54See all my reviews

Terror in the aisles came out when I was about 5 years old. Now if you have read my past movie reviews, one of them says that I first started viewing horror movies when I was 2 or 3 years old. Terror in the Aisles introduced me to some of the horror movies of the 60s and the 70s. For example the Birds by Alfred Hitchcock. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, Psycho, Rosemary's Baby, the Exorcist, and many more classics. After watching Terror in the Aisles I really got hooked on watching Horror Movies. And Terror in the Aisles doesen't just show Horror movies, it shows mysteries and suspense movies. So go rent this movie if you can still find it.
