One of Stephen King's favorite horror films, Tourist Trap (1979) is an original, surreal, and endlessly creepy experience. It gets a bit repetitive near the end, but, overall, this is a unique, memorable horror film. Although it is clearly influenced by the works of Tobe Hooper and Mario Bava, it has a bizarre, nightmarish feel all its own. Highly recommended.
