The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Tourist Trap (1979)

Tourist Trap

Director: David Schmoeller
Starring: Chuck Connors, Tanya Roberts

A group of friends break down near a roadside museum ran by an old man. Also on the property is a killer with telekinetic powers and an artists skill for making mannequins.

My Take:
It's kind of a whacky premise and it kind of works. Plus you get screen legend Chuck Connors chewing up scenes. Surprisingly the movie holds up fairly well for being made in 1979.

Rating: In the Middle (contains a unique flair)
