***Chuck Connors & creepy mannequins in the sticks of Southern Cal*** Three girls & two guys break down in the hills north of Los Angeles and are helped by the genial owner of a defunct desert museum with a penchant for spooky masks & mannequins (Chuck Connors). “Tourist Trap” (1979) combines elements of several previous horror flicks, like “Psycho” (1960), the desert museum opening of “Gargoyles” (1972), “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (1974), the telekinesis of “Carrie” (1976) and the creepy mannequins of several 70’s movies/shows, including Kolchak: The Night Stalker (“The Trevi Collection”). It was made by the creator of “Puppetmaster” (1989) and heavily influenced “House of Wax” (2005); it even had an impact on the imminent “Friday the 13th” flicks. If you like those movies you’ll like this one. It’s not as good as the better ones, and is overrated in some circles, but it’s solid for a late 70’s horror flick in the rural slasher mode. The highlights are Connor’s sympathetic portrayal, the rural locations, the sets/props and, especially, the female cast, featuring Robin Sherwood (Eileen), Tanya Roberts (Becky) and Jocelyn Jones (Molly). The film runs 1 hour, 30 minutes, and was shot in the Los Angeles area: Samma Ranch, Agua Dulce (near Vasquez Rocks) and Latigo Canyon, Malibu (the waterfall scene). GRADE: B
