4.0 out of 5 stars Chainsaw Atmosphere
For anyone looking for a light in the mid 70s aftermath of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, this just might be it.
A lack of gore is made up by scenery and atmosphere. It's standard drive by movie hokum, with teenagers (with various acting skills), derilict gas stations, spooky houses, and dolls coming to life. However, Chuck Conners chews the scenery and spits it out,...

1.0 out of 5 stars Five star film - One star blu-ray
OK, where to start.

This film is struck from the same master as the one in the US from Full Moon Features.

Whilst daytime scenes do look inherently better than the DVD counterpart (skin tones etc). This is where the good points end and the bad begin;

The film is cut from its usual 90-minute runtime to 85 minutes.

OK, where to start.

This film is struck from the same master as the one in the US from Full Moon Features.

Whilst daytime scenes do look inherently better than the DVD counterpart (skin tones etc). This is where the good points end and the bad begin;

The film is cut from its usual 90-minute runtime to 85 minutes.

There are frame rate issues (picture jumps, slows and speeds up) throughout the whole film.

Dark/nighttime scenes are very hard to make out to near impossible (far darker than the 20th Anniversary edition on DVD).

To conclude, stick with the 20th Anniversary edition until a better HD version is released.

1.0 out of 5 stars A good film, but avoid this version., 28 April 2014

This review is from: Tourist Trap [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I'll keep this brief as anyone looking to purchase this film will already know that it's a good old shocker that deserves a watch.

However, besides the terrible cover art for this bluray edition, the film is cut by 5 minutes.
Give this version a miss as all other versions are uncut and have a similar print. And a way better cover.

1.0 out of 5 stars A blu Ray to avoid, 22 April 2014
This review is from: Tourist Trap [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
5 minutes missing from this 88 films release and scenes in an incorrect order. Not worth the money wait for a better US release, probably scream factory

1.0 out of 5 stars This BluRay is cut!!!, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tourist Trap [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
88films released this cut BluRay and did not inform the buyers about it being cut although they knew about the missing 4 minutes before. This is what is missing:

At 25:22 - 30sec missing.
At 41:32 - 46sec missing (these now appear at 47:08).
At 47:08 - the scene originally here (31sec, has been removed).
At 62:25 - 2min 23sec missing (in it's place is a 47sec scene from 73:24 on the dvd).
At 78:13 - 32sec missing.

The US BluRay by Full Moon is the same edited version . Both have framing issues,too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid this! The film is cut and some scenes have even been rearranged., 19 April 2014
This review is from: Tourist Trap [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is a disgrace. Someone at Full Moon decided this film needed some trimming (it doesn't) so they cut a few snippets here and there at their leisure, and even moved some scenes around to different spots! There is NO excuse for this. This needs to be recalled immediately and fixed. Do not buy this!

1.0 out of 5 stars Film is edited, disc has frame errors, 19 April 2014
This review is from: Tourist Trap [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
As others have been pointing out, there are five minutes mysteriously deleted from this edition of Tourist Trap, and the numerous frame errors of the US release are also unfortunately present. 88 Films have announced that they will not be recalling/replacing the defective disc, so you have been warned! This release should be avoided!

1.0 out of 5 stars Fingers need to be pointed somewhere!!!!!, 19 April 2014

This review is from: Tourist Trap [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Many Blu-ray fans here in the U.S. are displeased and to put it bluntly, pissed at what has taken place with this release. There are multiple reports from connoisseurs and fans alike that the content of 'Tourist Trap has been edited for content! I don't know who is responsible for this butchery but anytime a director's art has been tainted with it is a travesty and an insult to all!

The handful of edits add up to about 5 minutes off the original release.Besides that I understand there are issues with frame jumps and for me, I can find better things to do with my hard earned money. I am sure this won't even be addressed or corrected and reissued. Screw you all! It's your loss!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Chainsaw Atmosphere, 13 Aug 2007

For anyone looking for a light in the mid 70s aftermath of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, this just might be it.
A lack of gore is made up by scenery and atmosphere. It's standard drive by movie hokum, with teenagers (with various acting skills), derilict gas stations, spooky houses, and dolls coming to life. However, Chuck Conners chews the scenery and spits it out, as does the scriptwriter, who delivers many original moments - the final ten minutes are simply splendid. And, apart from the killer's costume, there are no predictable cliches either.
Though, the first eight minutes of the film throws too many of its cards on the table by revealing the killers telekenetic powers too early, this is recommended to fans of the Chainsaw/Hills Have Eyes cycle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid this Blu-ray disc from for it's an incomplete edition!, 19 April 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tourist Trap [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
If you are a true horror cinema lover, please AVOID buying this Blu-ray release. The company that produced this release is known for having good editions but sadly this is not the case, it's the exception to that rule, and likely not their fault but the company which holds the rights in the US. Tourist trap has been cut for this edition and is missing many minutes (at all and some in the right place) which are found in the original DVD release as it was released originally in cinemas back in '79. You've been warned!
