TerrorVision (1986)

A strange sitcom family (mercifully free of canned laughter) cock-up their satellite TV installation and unwittingly create a gateway into their home for an alien creature. It sounds weird, but the premise is arguably the least insane thing about it. The gaudy d├ęcor and OTT family stereotypes are both painful and satirically on point. It’s a terrible film, it really is, and for that reason I have no doubt that it holds pride of place in someone’s collection. I must say, though, the special FX are genuinely ‘special’ in the best possible way.
