In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Trailer Tuesdays: Tourist Trap

This time around, I'd like to pass along the trailer to this underseen little oddity.

I was aware of Tourist Trap due to its distinctive coverbox, but just watched it last week after recently acquiring it. On the surface, it looks like a Texas Chainsaw clone - one could easily be confused as art director Robert A. Burns worked on both pictures - but almost immediately you realize there's more going on.

Horror distribution icons Irwin Yablans and Charles Band both had a hand in this project, but if that's not enough to pique your interest, it also stars Chuck Connors as a crazy wax museum owner, and a very young Tanya Roberts. What more do you need???
