5.0 out of 5 stars The way horror SHOULD be! May 20 2004
By Blade
This is one of those low-budget 'B' rated movies from the late 70s. Sadly, it didn't make too well at the box office during its release and was long forgotten and neglected around this time. Now, the original cult classic makes its way to DVD, with even clearer sound and picture (Though the picture quality is not the best, it still fits the horrifying atmosphere quite well) and let's not forget the interviews and commentary. I was not too sure about getting this or not, knowing that the film has gotten some mixed reviews but I'm actually very glad I did! Once I saw the trailer, I decided to take a chance. I wasn't disappointed! Some reviews here are claiming that this is ripping off Tobe Hooper's "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", but really I beg to differ. Yes, it may have been INSPIRED by such classics as Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" & TCM and it may BORROW a little here and there (barely much was borrowed at all really, except for the killer dressing up in women's clothing) but this is a whole new and original story, people! What I liked mostly about "Tourist Trap" was the scary, nightmarish look and feel of a REAL horror flick and wasn't anything stupid and pathetic like "The Ring". I mean, people got scared of that just because of a video that looked like it was made by a bunch of stoners and a little girl crawling out of a television set! Oh, GIVE ME A BREAK! That's NOT scary at all! You want real (I repeat REAL) horror that will send chills down your spine? This is the one to see! And now for a quick plot summary... The story concerns five youths who take a summer afternoon drive (yes, it SOUNDS TCM but it's NOT!) and end up having their car broken down. Read more ›

Stay away from this release. It's missing 5 minutes of footage and has issues with the framerate. Check the forum on blu-ray.com for more info. The UK release from 88 films has the same issues. Tell these companies that we won't buy their releases if they don't handle them properly. You've been warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eeeeeeeeeeeeee Oct. 19 2000
By A Customer
It seems a lot of the old horror "B" movies have been coming out in the recent past on DVD. I've been building my DVD collection with the Massacre series and the like. Seeing this is the season for horror movies, I've been desperate for good movies I haven't seen yet. I've been scouring Amazon's reviews and purchased this movie based solely on previous comments by those who have seen "Tourist Trap". I have to say, I am not the squeamish type. I can watch "Dawn of the Dead" while eating King Crab legs. I watched "Tourist Trap" on DVD for the first time last night. And let me repeat myself. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee. What a creepy movie. Chuck Conners is no longer "The Rifleman" for me. The movie has a bit of gore but leaves most to imagination. The Mannequin thing has been done a million times, but not like this. I don't want to spoil the movie for anyone, so I won't say anymore. Thanks to all the previous, positive reviewers that turned me on to this gem. My suggestion for horror genre lovers. Read my lips. "BUY THIS MOVIE". You can't beat the price. And if you don't put this flick along with your best top 5 horror favorites, you can beat on me via email. mkar@xtdl.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Awsome movie and great value DVD! April 7 2004
Tourist trap is a classic B-Movie and totally fun to watch. The story is about a twisted man that can move things with his mind and has made a world of his own amongst maniquines; making them move and talk to him and each other with his mind control power. Of course, a few un-lucky teens happen to stumble upon his place in the world and find themselves emmersed in a sick and twisted world.
The DVD is a grea value. It has director commentary; made by a director looking back to a movie 40 years ago. There are over 40 full-moon trailers. Lots of merchandise to view on the special features.
The DVD is a great value and the movie is awsome!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Little Blood, A Few Scares, Lots of Fun March 28 2004
TOURIST TRAP is a film for the horror afficionado, not the casual horror fan. If you like shock, gore and nail-biting, screaming scare scenes, this may bore you. If you've spent hundreds of hours watching all-night camp fright flicks and have a soft spot in your heart for good (not great) and slightly goofy films a la MOTEL HELL, you'll fall in love with TOURIST TRAP.
The set-up is the same you've seen a thousand times. Three gals and two guys break down in the woods, go skinny dipping and then die one by one. You know by the second murder who the killer "really" is and also which heroine will survive the carnage (this one plays by all the standard rules). Still, you've got a great cornball factor with Chuck "Rifleman" Connors in the Jim Siedow-esque role of helpful country bumpkin and a bona fide Scream Queen in Jocelyn Jones (easily the best performer in the film, her eyes convey true terror - it's a pity she didn't make a career of this).
The film fails in the pacing department and we have too many escapes and recaptures and escapes again after the killer's identity is revealed two-thirds of the way through the film. Still, there is a genuine creep factor in the apearance and manipulation of the mannequins (and Ms. Jones' mental breakdown at the film's end has the viewer wondering if they're really alive as well), though it's almost cancelled out by the notion of the lunatic slasher wielding psychokinetic powers as well. Coming five years after TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, the vision of the hulking killer in a woman's mask surrounded by an artifical family of mannequins doesn't seems as original and eerie as it should.
