Go camping in the middle of nowhere? Sure! Stop off at creepy gas station? You betcha! Insult the owner? Why not! Split up to find missing friend? Don't see why not! The protagonists of these backwoods horrors may not be smart, but they are fun to watch die.
Playing off the basic, and somewhat xenophobic, fear of being a stranger in a strange land, the travel horror genre sees tourists routinely stranded, abducted, and simply slaughtered for sick, foreign pleasure!
