Tourist Trap, the chilling cult horror film of madness, telekinesis, and mannequins is quietly celebrating a 40-year-anniversary of its March 1979 release, and if you haven’t seen this one you really should. https://www.amazon.com/Tourist-Trap-Blu-ray-Chuck-Connors/dp/B00FPM1BME/ref=as_li_ss_tl?crid=ZYLLJ7INFIZN&keywords=tourist+trap&qid=1552862755&s=gateway&sprefix=the+hole+in+the+ground,aps,360&sr=8-2&linkCode=ll1&tag=biinbi-20&linkId=342f4d56756d442b20a834a78ca003de&language=en_US

  1. The Hole In the Ground, that Irish horror movie with the great-looking previews, critical praise, and good reviews will be available on DVD April 30th. Available now on streaming services like YouTube movies, and Amazon, it pretty much skipped U.S. theatrical showing - but it looks like one worth checking out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxY2vnJiByw

  1. Valancourt Books has announced a new limited series of five long-unavailable paperback horror gems from the '70s and '80s. All five titles will be available for a limited time in a special mass-market size format, and in some cases will feature their original glorious paperback cover art. The first will be The Nest by Gregory A. Douglas - a tale of mutant, human-eating cockroaches - available April 2nd and following with another title each month. Hopefully they will be able to continue with even more titles in the future. Forbes has an interesting article, talking about the challenge they had of reviving older titles that are out of print. They aren’t public domain, yet the authors might be unreachable, deceased, or even non-existent because they were written under a pseudonym.http://www.valancourtbooks.com/paperbacksfromhell.html
