TerrorVision is an 1986 American science fiction horror comedy that’s achieved some notoriety in cult film circles.

The film is directed by Ted Nicolaou, produced and written by Albert and Charles Band and composed by Richard Band, all of whom would go on to later found and work with Full Moon Features in 1989.

This is a fun one on today’s episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast: A family’s new satellite television system starts receiving signals from another planet and picks up a giant, bloated alien with an appetite for garbage.

The movie was written and directed by the sound recording guy from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

The subplot: the mother and father are swingers and place an ad in a newspaper to romance another couple and get more than they bargained for. The rebellious teen daughter has a boyfriend, OD, whose fashion sensibilities are Sunset Strip 80s metal through and through.

The young kid is an expert marksman and his grandpa is a gun-toting NRA type.

TerrorVision was released on DVD with The Video Dead double feature.
