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 décor 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.
