Crop And Save
Tourist Trap (1979)
Weak horror movie
I try not to write negative reviews but this horror effort was bland at best. There is nothing really scary about this film, which is bad since it was made during an era when the genre was in its prime. Acting was wooden. Chuck Conners has telekinetic powers which he uses to control his mannequins and terrorize his victims. What was he thinking anyway? Not even his performance was enough to save this movie. On a bright note I did enjoy seeing the beautiful Tanya Roberts. That said, I generously gave it a 4/10.
Terror in the Aisles (1984)
Fun to watch documentary
This documentary shows some of the best moments mainly from 70's and early 80's horror movies. Donald Pleasance was a perfect choice for a host. Its really fun to guess and point out which scene came from what movie. Highly recommended for any true horror fan.
The Amityville Horror (1979)
A chilling classic
I first saw this movie many years ago when I was about 7. It was played on TV often. It has an awesome cast with James Brolin, Margret Kidder, and Rod Steiger as well as John Larch (from Dirty Harry and other Clint Eastwood movies). This whole movie is very creepy, from the beginning credits where the house is shown in the background to the end where George escapes with their dog Harry from the "alive" mansion! Lalo Schiffrin's music is also very memorable, ableit a bit tinsy at times. I easily place this title in the top ten best horror movies I've seen. Highly recomended for all horror fans!
Double Negative (1980)
This murder/mystery makes little sense. Its a pity that an actor of Perkin's caliber got stuck in roles like this. Note John Candy's short appearence early on. I say go see it, if you don't fall asleep before it ends, then at least you can say you saw it!
I first saw this little known early ninties title on HBO not long after its release. I must say I found it to be quite memorable, with excellent performances by John Hurt and Raul Julia as well as Bridget Fonda. I love the 1800 settings in Geneva (actually filmed in Italy) and the way Hurt slipped back in time and found where he was. (according to his car "we are alone") so cool. The monster was real creepy and he actually talks. All in all, a very good movie I highly recommend. As of this writing, its not out on DVD that I am aware of but if it does come out, it will definately be worthy of my collection.
