Trilogy Of Terror

The first two stories in Trilogy of Terror are a bit boring, but the third story, called “Amelia”, makes this the best scary doll movie ever filmed. It is based on Richard Matheson’s story “Prey”.

Karen Black plays a young woman who lives alone in an apartment. One day, she receives a package in the mail that contains a mysterious Zuni fetish doll. It looks like a tiny aboriginal warrior, with razor sharp teeth and a long spear. A note included in the package claims that the doll contains the spirit of a Zuni hunter named “He Who Kills”. It says that the gold chain the doll is wearing keeps the spirit of the hunter trapped inside the doll.

However, the Zuni doll’s golden chain falls off without her knowing. When the woman comes into the living room, she discovers that the doll is nowhere to be found. There is a knife missing from the kitchen and when she investigates, she is suddenly attacked by the doll, which stabs at her ankles viciously. The woman tries to run away but the doll chases her around the apartment.


  • Also, on this video posted here, you can actually see the fishing string being pulled above the puppet to release the gold chain from around the doll lol!

  • Triology of Terror 2 is soooo much better than this one! In Triology of Terror 2, the first story is about a woman who digs up her late husbands grave to retrieve some values and ends up being the meal to huge mutant rats who drag her through their tunnels underneath the cemetery.
    The second story is about a woman who is so desperate for her son to return from the grave that she resorts to voodoo and gets more than she bargained for when she summons a demon pretending to be her son.
    The third story is of course about the doll… I know some people think the doll is hilarious, but when I was a really young kid, I was terrified of that thing… lol.
    But then again, I’ve never exactly been fond of dolls… ever… lol
