Mantrap (aka ABC Mantrap in United States) was a short film featuring songs by the musical group ABC.

The film also features James Villiers as the band's manager.


Martin Fry is asked to join the band as they embark on tour heading east through Europe. But at the height of their popularity the band tries to secretly replace Fry with a Russian spy in order to sneak him back behind the iron curtain. It is then up to Martin to battle his doppelganger and make the world safe for New Romantic Synth Pop.
