4.0 out of 5 stars Chainsaw Atmosphere, 13 Aug. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tourist Trap [1979] (Region 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [US Import] (DVD)
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.
