Their fateful encounter gets twisted and they wake up in each other’s bodies.

UNCUT & COMPLETE for the first time! Every year young people disappear…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 CONNORS) 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 is widely recognized as one of the scariest and strangest horror movies of the 1970s, a film championed by none other than Stephen King as wielding an eerie, spooky power. Legendary actor Chuck Connors (THE RIFLEMAN, WEREWOLF) stars as Mr. Slausen, a telekinetic psychopath who lures a group of young people to his ramshackle roadside attraction, unleashing an army of psychically controlled mannequins and other monstrosities upon them. Bonus features include: Interview with David Schmoeller., Audio commentary by director David Schmoeller., Rare trailers.
Due to her controversial methods, Tatyana (Oksana Akinshina), a young doctor, is on the precipice of losing her medical license. Her career may not be over, though. After she’s recruited by the military, she is brought to a secure science research facility to assess a very special case, that of a cosmonaut who survived a mysterious space accident and has returned to Earth with a unique condition: there’s something living inside of him that only shows itself late at night. The military has nefarious plans for it. Tatyana wants to stop it from killing. And the creature itself thrives on destruction. Combining the palpable fear of the unknown with the horror of bodily invasion, this hair-raising thriller turns the interstellar terror of Alien on its head, delivering something fresh to the interplanetary monster movie canon. And with its massive scale and brutal carnage, this sci-fi gem signals the arrival of a major new voice: first-time director Egor Abramenko.
