Intro and Q&A with Director David Schmoeller!

Perhaps the most bafflingly mis-rated title of any in this series, Tourist Trap concerns a group of nubile teens from the big city who fall prey to the evils of a twisted backwoods mannequin manufacturer (professional athlete cum TV star Chuck Connors!) while on a road trip. Extremely disturbing deaths and a gallery of grotesque, nightmare-inducing dummy faces didn’t stop this straight-up slasher in the Texas Chainsaw/House of Wax vein from somehow getting a PG. The only possible excuse is that the ratings board literally fell asleep at the switch.
