Tourist Trap Blu-ray Release Date

11 October 2013 1:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The 1979 horror flick, Tourist Trap, was re-released on DVD not so long ago and the film will soon be available on Blu-ray. If you haven’t seen Tourist Trap, here’s the official synopsis:

“An eerie and deserted wax museum, Slausen’S Lost Oasis, is the site for spine-tingling terror where four unsuspecting young travelers (including Tanya Roberts from “Charlie’s Angels”) are lured into a very deadly “Tourist Trap.” Slausen, (Chuck Conners) is the reclusive and bizarre owner of this attraction, which is actually more like a macabre chamber of horrors. The grotesque and frightening mannequins in this sordid side-show are only the beginning of the murderous mayhem and nightmarish madness to come.”

Tourist Trap stars Chuck Connors, Jocelyn Jones, Jon Van Ness, Robin Sherwood and Tanya Roberts. The movie is directed by David Schmoeller, who later went on to direct Crawlspace and Puppetmaster. The movie will be released »

Classic Western Star on TCM

19 August 2013 1:12 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Randolph Scott movies: From Westerns to Cary Grant / Irene Dunne comedy Handsome, granite-faced Randolph Scott is Turner Classic Movies’ next great choice in its "Summer Under the Stars" film series. Monday, August 19, 2013, is Randolph Scott Day, which begins and ends with Westerns. That shouldn’t be surprising, for although Scott was initially cast in a variety of roles and movie genres (including Westerns), he became exclusively a Western star in the late ’40s, sticking to that genre until his retirement in 1962 following the release of Sam Peckinpah’s elegiac Ride the High Country, which TCM will be showing on Monday evening. Joel McCrea at his very best and Mariette Hartley co-star. (See “On TCM: Randolph Scott Westerns.”) (Photo: Randolph Scott ca. 1945.) Many of Scott’s Westerns were routine fare, including Badman’s Territory (1946), which kicks off Randolph Scott Day. Some, however, have become classics of the genre, especially his late »

R.I.P. Don Medford

3 January 2013 12:23 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Prolific television director Don Medford, who is perhaps best known for the two-episode finale of the 1960s drama The Fugitive, died December 12 at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 95. His family reported the death Wednesday. The 1967 conclusion of Fugitive, the popular series about a man falsely accused of murdering his wife (played by David Janssen) and relentlessly pursued around the country by a determined detective (Barry Morse), was seen by a then-record of an estimated 78 million viewers — a milestone that stood until the “Who Shot J.R.” episode of Dallas drew an estimated 83 million in 1980. Medford’s TV career stretched from the early 1950s Tales Of Tomorrow through the late ’80s Jake And The Fatman. Among the many major and varied series he worked on were the anthologies Alfred Hitchock Presents and The Twilight Zone, The Untouchables with Robert Stack, M Squad with Lee Marvin, »
