Roy watches too much TV every night and Helen just cannot stand it. Then one night, Helen offers Roy a night to save their relationship: a romantic getaway without phones, their children, and especially no TV. Unfortunately, when Roy’s hooked on the big screen, there’s no going back. This frustrates and angers her and Helen decides to smash the family console with one of Roy’s trophies as a wake-up call to reality. A heartbroken-to-disoriented Roy then hears the doorbell and finds out that it’s a mysterious salesman named Spike who offers him the “ultimate getaway” from all the hate, frustration, and failures: a new remote controller and a new state-of-the-art satellite TV. Roy accepts the new TV by signing a free trial contract not knowing that he just sold his soul to the devil himself. But later, Helen is both not impressed and steamed. After a fight outside, the “dish” activates. Roy and Helen try as hard as possible to escape, but it was too late for the force of gravity from the dish sucks them into the “Cable Television World of Hell” – all six hundred and sixty-six channels worth. Now they must survive through every episode of shows such as the game show “You Can’t Win”, the U.W.W.F. (Underworld Wrestling Federation) match, “Northern Overexposure”, “Driving Over Miss Daisy” and a cartoon sequence called “RoboCat”, “Autopsies of the Rich and Famous”, “Duane’s Underworld”, “HTV”, and “Off With His Head”, all within 24 hours. If successful, they will return back to home, but if they fail, the devil keeps their souls forever. After they survived one day without harm, Roy gets sent back home while Spike hold Helen hostage. Now with the help of their children, Daryl, a communication whiz, and Diane, a fashion freak, Roy must re-enter the underworld of Hell Vision TV and save his wife, while keeping a distance from Spike. It is then that Roy will learn the hard way that there’s more things in life than only a television. Like commitment. (Formerly written by Christopher Howell)
Plot: 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.

Could Have Been So Much Better
The idea behind this movie was great. But, the writers missed so many opportunities for jokes. The characters in the movie jumped into probably 25 different movie or TV types. Each one was a ripe setup for several hilarious jokes. But, most of the time, the writers punted and just played it straight or relied on sight gags (which Ritter is known for).
So, they get dropped in the Arctic and wolves attack them. Not funny. They get dropped into a cat-and-mouse cartoon and the cat chases the mouse for ten minutes. Less funny than a real cat-and-mouse cartoon.They get dropped into a “professional” wrestling match and get thrown around the ring for a bit. Not funny.
Each scene was just bursting with comic potential, but the writers never went for the home run and always played it safe and bunted for the single. By the end, I was writing the big jokes in my head.
This movie is just begging to be remade with a team of actual comedians writing the script and, bonus, playing all the bit parts.
666th review and quite a special one to me!
Absolutely love this charming unique satan enlightenment! The story is so so good, very original in fact which is always a great extravaganza of thought provoking fun. “Screw up in here and your dead meat, dead me! – Love that line so much! The cast, soundtrack, and style of everything is so much excellence; I smile a lot whilst watching it. I so wanna own whenever possible.
