Movie Info

In this made-for-TV horror showcase, Karen Black plays four separate roles in three successive tales written or based on the works of venerable genre writer Richard Matheson. In "Julie," Black portrays a prim college literature instructor who engages in a debauched affair with one of her students after he drugs, date-rapes, and blackmails her into submission; here and in the other stories, however, things aren't what they seem. "Millicent and Therese" features the actress in two roles as good

One of the most underwhelming anthology horror films I've ever seen...

By the time the Zuni fetish doll bursts onto the screen and worms its way into your nightmares (or your heart), you'll be fully convinced that you've seen at least one-third of a genre classic.

Demonic doll doling out death? Delightful!

Love that Karen Black and her little witch doctor! Ouch!

The third segment in this trilogy is arguably the scariest piece ever crafted under the made-for-TV label

Audience Reviews for Trilogy of Terror

I was really surprised and impressed by Karen Black in this movie, she plays all the main characters in the movie perfectly, it's very cool. The first two stories are a bit predictable, but fun. The last one is unpredictable and exciting. I really enjoyed this movie, it's a great anthology horror film, and I recommend it.

The first two stories are fine but the justly famous final one is enough to make you jumpy for days after.

"Trilogy of Terror" is three short stories, excellent stared by the same actress, ĘKaren BlackĘ and the movie itself is definitely well done and the segments are good enough, although somewhat lacking in suspense but really worth watching.

Out of the three movies, the last was the best one with the Voodoo doll! That little thing was the creepiest monster I've ever seen when I was a kid, and even watching this movie in mid day time still scared me. It was pretty awesome and to this day, it still creeps me out. ;)
