    Another underrated film from what i think is the best decade in horror, David Schmoeller's Tourist Trap

    A 7 here too--an above average movie. Chuck Connors is great, and the mannequins are creepy as hell. I think it was hurt by its PG rating more than anything else.

    It's alright but the old guy in it ruined it for me though if it had possessed killer dummys it would of been a ten. :evil:

    Underrated and fun. The opening scene alone is worth the price. But there are tons of other memorable moments. One of the first and best slasher films to come out after Halloween...with more than a few nods to Carrie,Psycho, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    Excellent horror movie! I totally fell in love with it the first time I watched it.

    The soundtrack by Pino Donaggio is one of the most elaborated ones in horror cinema history.

    I've always loved the movie. Not perfect, but a solid 9 in my book.

    Just saw this for the first time and really liked it. Reminded me a lot of the original TCM, but had a bit more going on what with the mannequins and telekinetic killer. The opening scene is amazing.

    I found the movie a bit goofy and weird, but it had it's moments.

    I rated it 8.5, but in a case of voter's remorse, think it probably rates more like a 7.5...BTW, I hear Jocelyn Jones is a scientologist now.

    9/10 for me. Knew nothing about this film before seeing it and was very pleasantly surprised. Pretty intense for a PG rating. Cool setting and well directed. Chuck Connors was great and Tanya Roberts was hot! :evil:

    This is a very under rated film. A cool scary little gem of a movie. A great soundtrack, and lots of creepy sets.A 9 all the way for me.

    I recently watched this for the second time and I gotta say, it's held up REALLY well. Aside from maybe a couple hairstyles and the lack of cell phones (thank god, cell phone horror is seriously pissing me off), it could almost be considered timeless!

    It takes a lot to creep me out but this film has some really intense moments. Odd how 2 films with a PG rating happen to be films that really affect me: Tourist Trap and Gremlins (childhood trauma).

    I think so. I know it was anamorphic.
