The very first horror movie I ever saw was TOURIST TRAP on television and it scared the living daylights out of me. Years later I bought it on DVD and there it sits on my shelf, gathering dust. Even the cover freaks me out. I keep telling myself I’m waiting to be in the “right mood” to watch it. The truth is, that even as an adult I’m scared to return to that feeling again. There is a scene where the killer puts plaster on a tied up girl’s face and tells her that her heart is going to explode from fear. That got to me more than every other horror movie I’ve ever seen put together.
WATCH IT AGAIN! It’s not so scary. It’s actually pretty funny. (Although the ending will either drive you permanently insane or turn you into a mannequin!)
There’s a third option–it could MAKE YOUR HEART EXPLODE WITH FEAR! Bwahahahaha!
I’m going to have to bump this one up the queue. Somehow I missed seeing it back in the day.
