Tourist Trap

Tourist Trap

Directed by David Schmoeller

Five friends are hunted by a creepy killer after stopping to visit a roadside museum in this slasher that counts Stephen King as one of its biggest fans. After car trouble, the gang goes to visit a creepy museum filled with eerie mannequins which may be alive. Director David Schmoeller's debut bares the mark of his teachers - surreal and shock-loving directors Luis Bunuel (UN CHIEN ANDALOU) and Alejandro Jodorowsky (SANTA SANGRE). Ten years later, Schmoeller would create and direct the cult horror series PUPPETMASTER, which also deals with deadly dolls.

A surprisingly effective, strange chiller with plenty of nods to its kin. And Tanya Roberts.

Very good for a 70’s movie.

yes the plot is nonsensical but this movie oozes atmosphere. The creepy mannequins are worth the watch alone. As a bonus we also get an exquisite starlet Tanya Roberts running around in a skimpy top and short-short daisy dukes. This is a quintessential late 70s-early 80s horror gem.

Creepy and campy! Drags a little but worth a watch and definitely weird but in a good way. Joe Bob does a good breakdown of it with some really interesting trivia.
