"Tourist Trap" Remake Announced


Every year, hundreds of young people travel the country… and disappear. 45 years after the release of cult classic Tourist Trap, Bloody Disgusting has exclusively learned this weekend that horror legend Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, You’re Next, Jakob’s Wife, Suitable Flesh) will be producing an upcoming remake of the 1979 horror movie!

Alliance Media Partners has acquired the rights to Tourist Trap, and Crampton, the company’s Vice President of Production & Development, will be producing the new take on the classic.

Crampton is producing with Bob Portal, Managing Director & Head of Production at AMP.

The original Tourist Trap was directed by David Schmoeller.

In the film, “A group of young friends stranded at a secluded roadside museum are stalked by a masked assailant who uses his telekinetic powers to control the attraction’s mannequins.”

Chuck Connors played the villain Mr. Slausen, the owner of tourist trap Slausen’s Lost Oasis. The ill-fated friends, well, they all get turned into mannequins, making for one wild finale.

Meagan Navarro wrote about Tourist Trap here on Bloody Disgusting, “This slasher with a supernatural twist brings the nightmare fuel in the form of deeply unnerving mannequins. Mannequins are already terrifying, with their life-like appearance and vacant eyes. But what if they unhinged their jaws and made eerie sounds as they closed in on their victim for the kill? You get one of the creepiest slashers hailing from the golden era of the sub-genre.”

You can watch the original 1979 movie’s retro trailer below. You can stream the film on various platforms right now, including Shudder, Tubi, Peacock, Freevee and AMC+.

And stay tuned for more info on the Tourist Trap remake.

Horror films under the Alliance Media Partners label include Old Man, The Seed, The Wretched, Jakob’s Wife, Amulet, The Endless, The Pale Door, and last year’s Suitable Flesh.

It's funny I should notice this thread. I seen the original by Charles Band recently and it has some ex-baseball star turned actor in it wearing these creepy ass masks.

It was quite good, really...
