Default Tourist Trap (1979)



This film is hard to categorize. It has elements of a slasher but it also has an ESP element to it as well. What it has in spades is creepy atmosphere, a sense of the macabre, and a really twisted killer. I absolutely love this film. Has anybody seen this fucker besides me?

I'm your man, baby

I have the DVD released a few years ago,some sort of anniversary edition. And I saw it not in the theatres but back when it came to TV sometime around 1983 or so. How about Tanya Roberts, wasn't she fine back then? Not to mention "The Rifleman" himself, Chuck Connors. Very good movie and as you said, very hard to categorize. Also quite creepy.

Four friends are traveling along a backroad when their jeep breaks down. (of course ) They are helped by a man named Slausen. He lives in a museum full of lifelike mannequins that was built by his brother Davey. Them meeting Davey is not a good thing. I don't want to say much more because it's better if you go into it as fresh as possible. But trust me, it really is a great and dare I say, scary horror film. I highly recommend this to anybody. And yes Sam Fisher, Tanya Roberts was smoking. Actually,
I would describe this film as a mixture of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, House of Wax, and Carrie.

Yeah what a movie. As far as Chuck Connors goes, this is a bit off topic but I have an old VHS called "Hollywood Sex Scandals" which is a collection of porn lops that several famous stars did before they became famous. One of them was Chuck Connors, but when I found out it was a gay loop I shut it off and fast forwarded to the Barbara Streisand loop which I found to be MUCH more interesting

Well seriously,. it LOOKS like him. And it IS a guy he's messing with. I hope this isn't true as well. I'm really serious,it looks like him, and I keep trying to tell myself "it's only an impersonator."

Dude I'll send you the link to the page that has the tape so I can verify what I'm speaking about.

i have this movie It is a slasher film and goreless. The movie is very slow but it has its creepy scenes. The killer wears some cool masks and the mannequins are creepy. The remake of HOUSE OF WAX seemed to rip off this film too. Indeed is a decent film and I recommend it.
