    A wonderful trio of vintage horror stories all starring the wonderful Karen Black, The first is one of the best, following a serial killer with psychic powers and as a teacher, she lures young handsome students to love her and then kills them when she gets bored, The second is not so good all about multiple personalities and the third the craziest is about a mystic doll she buys as a present for her boyfriend which comes alive and tries to kill her. Enjoyable stuff.

    Trilogy of Terror acts as a three part examination of women who, in one way or another, conquer the trend of victimization, starring a break out performance in four roles by Karen Black as well as a good supporting cast, Dan Curtis's always tense directorial style, and a stellar final act that serves as an intense, creepy, and manic showdown between Black and the infamous Zuni fetish doll, making this an entertaining and effective made for television anthology, even though the first two acts can't quite match the reputation of the final.

    Scary as hell. Gave me nightmares for weeks as a child in 1975. And it's that damn picture of Karen Black with the knife. Though a few seconds later in the film there is a scarier surprise.

    Like most anthologies, the stories quality are uneven. The middle chapter is rather useless, but the first is pretty interesting. While the last, goes without saying, is a classic. And considering it's a TV movie from the 70s, it's impressively effective. Karen Black does a great job.

    The third installment is a 9 but the first two together would not add up to Amelia so it's a 5 total score.

    Trilogy of Terror: I remember seeing this Karen Black terror anthology as a child. The other vignettes were ok, but it was the final one, Amelia, in which Black played a woman terrorized in her apartment by a Zuni fetish doll that has come to life, that stuck with me. Considered terrifying at the time, it has become a sort of cult classic, inspiring a myriad of possessed doll horror films. B

    OVER 40? U *HAVE* TO REMEMBER THIS MOVIE: Like 'Mommie Dearest,' I am sure the producers had a different legacy in mind, but the "It's so BAD it's really, really GOOD" label applies to this Karen Black horror cult classic. U *HAVE* to remember.. lol, now I wanna see it again.
