It's a double-dose of '80s trash, courtesy of Shout's Scream Factory!

In Ted Nicolaou's TERRORVISION (1986), the Putterman's new satellite dish gets reception that's out of this world. Literally. Things get ugly when they beam in an intergalactic spacedog that eats everything in sight, be it food, trash, or family member. Campy, colorful, and completely stupid, this latex-heavy Empire Production is about as decade-centric as it gets, with a great cast including Diane Franklin, Mary Woronov and Gerrit Graham.

There's more TV-themed terror in Robert Scott's THE VIDEO DEAD (1987), as an errant delivery lands a supernatural television in the suburbs, where it unleashes a gang of evil dead set on dropping property value. A gory, low-budget, metaphysical zombie flick that's more fun than it has any right to be -- or at least it was when I was 14, which was the last time I watched it. Hope it holds up!
