First of all, sorry to my readers out there. Been sick.
But I am back baby, and do I have a doozy. Tourist Trap was a 1979 horror film where a bunch of kids do the dumbest things possible, get picked off by a killer, blah blah blah yakkity schmaikkity, tell me if you have heard this one before.
But it's a little more surreal than that. The killer has telekinetic powers. He can animate the mannequins at the little roadside museum that is the tourist trap of the title. He dresses himself up as the mannequin's as well, like a Dollar Store Leatherface. It starred Chuck Connors, and I can only imagine that was because ol' Chuck was strapped for cash.
Tourist Trap was a staple on cable when I was a lad. The joke used to be that HBO stood for "Hey! Beastmaster's On!" Well, Tourist Trap was usually playing right afterward. I must have watched it 100 times when I was in middle school and hardly remembered a thing about it until re-watching it today. Still, it is a weird, trippy and surreal bit of 70's horror and you might want to give it a shot.
