Audio 2: Commentary by Director David Schmoeller
Teenagers come across a shut-in psychopath with telekinetic powers. He proceeds to use these powers to slay them one by one as well as animate the various mannequins he uses to keep himself company.
Although widely under appreciated, “Tourist Trap” is still a notable and worthwhile entry into the horror genre. The first film directed by David Schmoeller (of Puppet Master fame). Pino Donaggio’s score is nothing short of amazing; elevating the film to a whole other level in terms of both tension and atmosphere. Connors delivers a deliciously over the top performance as Mr. Slausen; the other actors are all competent considering that this is a low budget flick. For being close to 26 years old, the film has stood up extremely well – a creepy back woods setting, decent effects, and few hidden surprises in the script; it’s worthwhile viewing for any horror enthusiast. A definite cult classic!
