Audience Reviews for Trilogy of Terror

  • May 07, 2014
    This classic made for TV horror anthology is one of the finest in the horror genre. Featuring three well constructed and terrifying stories, aided with a stunning performance by actress Karen Black, who is featured in all three stories, Trilogy of Terror remains one of the standout films of the 70's, one of the best films that has never really got the credit it deserved. Karen delivers a great performance in all three stories, and it's one of the key aspects to why the film is this good. The other is the writing of horror icon Richard Matheson, who wrote the film, wrote a solid story and it is a film that is truly terrifying, and is sure to appeal to genre fans. Director Dan Curtis crafts a terrific film, and for a Made for TV affair, it's definitely one of the best I've seen. What makes Trilogy of Terror such a good film is that it's a film that doesn't use great gimmicks to terrify you, the ideas here are simple, but the terror factor is high. Matheson's script is excellent and he knows how to get the most out of his ideas by using simple ideas, which are much more terrifying than elaborate concepts that fizzle out. For me, the best story was the third one, "Amelia", which is features the famous Zuni Doll, upon seeing that, it was one of the most terrifying things that you've witnessed, and it's one of the most accomplished, well executed of the three stories, and all three of them are very good and overall top notch terror. If you're in the mood for one of the greatest horror anthologies that has ever been committed to film, definitely watch Trilogy of Terror, it's a fairly short film at 72 minutes in length, but it's memorable from start to finish, and it's one of the most underrated and worthwhile horror gems that I have seen in a very long time.

    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.

    Another favourite of mine from my childhood days. I used to be so scared after watching this on TV late at night that I would not put my bare feet on the floor whilst getting into bed.....I used to have to sort of leap in!! This anthology, like all short story collections, has one superior offering...in this case it is the final story about the voodoo fetish doll that comes to life & tries to murder Karen Black. It has lost none of its impact & is still is terrifying to watch today, 30 years later. Do yourselves a favour, people, & watch this film!.

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