Scream Factory on TERRORVISION with THE VIDEO DEAD (review)

Terror comes out of the television, from outer space AND from beyond the grave in Scream Factory/Shout!Factory's Blu-ray/DVD double bill of Empire Pictures' TERRORVISION and the direct-to-video eighties cult hit THE VIDEO DEAD.  In the first film, a ravenous mutant is beamed from its home planet and unfortunately into the satellite of a well-to-do Los Angeles family of swingers, New Age rockers, and survivalists.  Gerit Graham, Mary Woronov, Diane Franklin, Jonathan Gries, and Chad Allen star.  In the second film, an old TV set is the gateway between worlds that unleashes the living dead into a pleasant suburban neighborhood.  Both films are surprisingly stacked with extras including commentary tracks (two on THE VIDEO DEAD and one on TERRORVISION), retrospective featurettes, trailers, galleries, and even a original screenplay for THE VIDEO DEAD.
