The BBFC cut version then appeared on VHS rental in 1. VCL label, followed by an uncut version by Vipco in July 1.
A year later the film was listed as a Video Nasty, however after several unsuccessful . Problems persisted however, as Vipco released the film in 1.

Hooper, who grew up in Austin, Texas, started out as a college professor and documentary cameraman. This was his life during the 1. Written by Hooper and Kim Henkel, the story was loosely based on real life serial killer Ed Gein, who murdered several people in the 1. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre became one of the most controversial and groundbreaking horror films of all time, and even today continues to upset and delight horror fans.
The success of this film, and its banning here in the UK, made Hooper a household name. However, before the Video Nasty scare kicked off, Hooper was able to make another film which would also end up on the DPP list, Death Trap.
Made just a few years after . Winning a number of awards at horror film festivals, Death Trap was also the film which launched the career of Robert Englund, a man Hooper would later work with again on Night Terrors (1. The Mangler (1. 99. After being fired from directing The Dark (1. Hooper had further success directing the 1.
Salem. After this Hooper went on to direct The Funhouse (1. Poltergeist (1. 98. Hooper create an almost family friendly horror, although it was not without it problems. Steven Spielberg hired Hooper to direct, while Spielberg would produce: however, differences between the two meant that Spielberg would finish off directing, but Hooper is the man listed as director. The film, released by MGM, was a massive success and spawned a number of sequels, and proved Hooper really was a class act. However, surprisingly, Hooper had to wait three years to find work again after the success of Poltergeist, and in 1. Hooper directed the fun and rather brilliant Lifeforce, his first journey into sci- fi and horror.
The film was pretty well received, but with Invaders of Mars (1. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1. Hooper. Now, personally, I quite liked The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (which starred Dennis Hopper), but many didn.
After a number of TV series episodes, Hooper then directed a short for horror anthology Body Bags (1. The Mangler and Night Terrors. For the next ten years, Hooper worked on a number of TV series from Nowhere Man (1. Taken (2. 00. 2).
After a long absence from films, Hooper returned in 2. Dennis Donnelly. The film was slated, but personally I thought it was superb, incredibly grim and a welcome return for Hooper. He followed this with the equally dark Mortuary (2. Hooper then directed two segments for the exceptional Masters of Horror TV series (2. Djinn. The buzz surrounding Djinn, and the fact fans are eagerly waiting to see it just goes to prove that Hooper still has an awful lot of respect from horror fans, and even now, some forty years after The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the director is still relevant. A true legend if ever there was one, and a director who will forever be in horror fans debt.
So, Death Trap, the film which came after The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the film which had Hooper attempting to prove that his previous film was not a stroke of luck. Here he had to prove that what came before really was a sign of serious talent, and with Death Trap Hooper proved it and waved a great big middle finger to all the doubters.
Death Trap, for all its flaws, is a truly brilliant horror that grabs the viewer by the balls and holds them to ransom. Death Trap is over the top, completely mad, vicious, funny, loud, rude and pretty much tells the do- gooders to piss off. Death Trap is wrong, in so many ways, loves its violence, even celebrates it, but never ever apologises. We get a pretty good idea of just where this film will lead as we meet Robert Englund. He has taken a prostitute up to the room of a brothel and bar, and is not happy that she does not want to play his games.
Angry, he causes a scene, bringing the head Mistress to the room who kicks the poor prostitute out, leaving her to find another place to stay for the night. Unfortunate for her, she stumbles through the Bayou mist and discovers The Starlight Hotel, run by a man named Judd (an insane Neville Brand). We get a good idea of what sort of man he is as he asks the poor girl to sign in to the hotel while he looks down her top. We also quickly learn that Buck bullies the hotel manager, and uses his rooms to take women back for a good time. There is minimal plot here, apart from the local sheriff searching for a missing girl, and her family also turning up and staying at the Starlight Hotel in the hope of finding her. However, less is better here as there is very little demand for a complicated, well thought out plot.
Simply, Judd has a pet Crocodile, and every now and then he likes to feed guests to his pet while appearing to be really upset by his actions. He bellows out what is barely English as he has temper tantrums and spends most of the film shouting at himself. With his long hair, crazy eyes and sweaty face, he is a fearsome creation. When he does brandish weapons, like his trusty scythe or garden rake, he is actually incredibly frightening. Unfortunately, with the body count growing, a woman tied up upstairs and Buck bullying him, this man is close to breaking point.
With another family arriving whose dog is eaten by his pet Croc, Judd has no option but to retaliate, killing the Father of the family with the dog in hilarious fashion. Screaming and waffling to himself, Judd forces the man into harm. One minute you will be shocked, the next laughing out loud as Judd shouts and frantically rushes around in full on maniacal mode. Brand has created one of the most mental, bonkers and totally insane villains you will ever witness on screen, this is great stuff. Added to that Robert Englund. Hooper has directed another tale of madness, very similar to .
I mean, with a sign on the hotel saying . There is also a serious lack of colour, with the film appearing to have been washed in a washing machine before being presented: the colour orange is the most dominant colour here, but again, it gives the film an incredible charm that you just cannot help but love. Scenes like this remain memorable, even today, and like it or not, good looking ladies and horror go hand in hand like salt and pepper. With the emphasis on a mad hotel owner, a superbly created Croc, good looking ladies and a cast of real grim, horrible people, Death Trap ticks all the boxes. The deaths are superbly directed, and at times are a little unsettling, and Hooper makes no apologies for using pet dogs or even a little girl to get his audience upset, the mark of a true horror master! Even though dated, Death Trap delivers everything you could want from a Video Nasty, and delivers it head on, in your face and makes no excuses. This is a film which only needs the most basic of plots simply to tie together the scenes of carnage.
This is a film which relishes, and glorifies its violence and unsavoury characters, and this is a film which demands you take your head out of your ass and just enjoy horror for what it is. Death Trap is a horror intended to be enjoyed on face value, there is nothing deep or meaningful here, and you certainly will not need to use your brain. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the madness, the insanity, the completely mad ride into the Starlight Hotel, its owner Judd and is beloved pet Croc out back. If you prefer the simple things in life, you will love Death Trap! Rating: Should Death Trap have been added to the Video Nasties list?
I suppose for its time, yes it should have. There is no reason for the violence, and no excuse, it is simply violence for violence sake, but you won.
