Trivia

Many movie posters featured a long text preamble that read: "If you can handle more than one hundred jolts of one hundred percent pure terror, then you might be ready for 'Terror in the Aisles'. A non-stop roller coaster ride through the scariest moments of the greatest terror films of all time. TERROR IN THE AISLES. It's a cut above the rest." See more »

Goofs

In the ending credits, "Jaws 2" needs Arabic, not Roman, "2" in its title. See more »

Alternate Versions

British cinema and video versions were deleted by 10 seconds by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) to remove shots of a woman being beaten during the extracts from Vice Squad, a crotch-grabbing shot from Dressed to Kill and footage of nunchuks during the extract from Ms .45.
