Terror In The Aisles (1984) – Raw Review

Terror Movie Montage

The ultimate collage of popular horror films narrated by scream stars Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen. 

Terror horror documentary featuring donald pleasance, nancy allen and more. Jaws, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw massacre, the birds, movies.
Terror in the Aisles is a fun commentary on why people find scary movies so fun and fulfilling. Featuring scenes from some the most popular and infamous movies from the 60s, 70s, and early 80s the movie deftly edits them together into a thrilling tapestry of murder, mayhem, and madness. 

“Why make up horrible things when there is already so much real terror in the world? Perhaps we invent artificial horror, to help us cope with the real ones.” – Donald Pleasance 

We love this movie. It certainly has a lot of nostalgia value  but also is a fantastic repository of clips from some of the best and most misremembered horror films from the pre-VHS age. How many of these have YOU seen?
