Something weird's on the air.
Salesman Roy Knable spends all his free time watching television, to the exasperation of his wife, Helen. One day, TV salesman Spike convinces Roy to buy a satellite dish offering 666 channels. The new addition to Roy's home entertainment system sucks him and Helen into Hellvision, a realm run by Spike, who is an emissary of Satan. For 24 hours, the couple must survive devilish parodies of TV programs if they want to return to reality alive.

They don't make them like this now. Perfect blend of family adventure, fantasy and comedy. The joke rate is high and it's quite funny. Ritter was great. The many cultural parodies are good but obviously a little dated now. So that a lot of jokes many won't get. The last quarter was a bit slower and the end relied on relentless paced parodies after another, which wasn't a bad idea to add excitement but it was more disorientating and empty. Overal it's still recommended. This should have been a hit in 92.
