How does one go about describing a movie like Tourist Trap, never mind reviewing it? This movie is like another example of David Lynch chewing on some peyote and then waxing poetic about slasher films (see what I did there, with waxing?). Now, I’ve seen my fair share of fucked up movies, I do love horror movies after all, the stranger the better, but 1979’s Tourist Trap takes the cake.
Or, at least, it comes comes close.
Tourist Trap is directed by David Schmoeller. You might recognize the name from movies such as Puppetmaster, Netherworld, and Crawlspace. While those movies have their place in horror cinema history, again, Tourist Trap takes the cake.
