Karen Black really stands out in this movie of strange happenings. In "Trilogy of Terror", her personality really shines through. In the segment of "Julie", she may look like someone who is tried to her work. Just to say, don't let that look fool you. One student tried his best to make her a part of a scandal. Somehow, that plan backfires. BeBecause at the end, he ended up being the statistic, not her. In the segment of "Millicent and Therese", you deal with sisters: one's a prude, the other, a wild child. Dealing with family trauma, of course when the real deal is a female version of "Jekyll & Hyde". And the last segment is "Amelia". This one is classic! Here you got a woman with mother issues, after she buys a Zuni fetish doll, she called her. After the hang up, the gold chain falls off, without her knowing it. All of the sudden, the doll comes alive, and attack her savagely. This one tops it all. Made back in the mid 70's, it wasn't all that cheesy. It was simple though. Still not kid friendly. A good way to remember Karen. 3 out of 5 stars.

Long live Karen Black!Reviewed byGOWBTWVote: 7/10
I first saw this movie when I was 10 and it scared the crap out of me. It came on Halloween night and even though I was told to go to bed by Mom, I thought I stay up and watch this scary movie with my sisters. HA!! Now I know why Mothers are always right. The first two stories weren't very exciting or scary. I was ready to go to bed, but decided to stick with it and watch the last story anyway. After seeing this African voodoo fetish doll come to life and start chasing Amelia around the house with a knife in hand. I was getting scared. I think the suspense of her searching aimlessly around the house, under the couch and inside the cabinets for this killer doll left me hiding under the sofa throw pillows. The dolls unique high pitched chatter (ie,yie,yie,yie,yie!!, iee,yie,yie,yie,yie!!) over and over again set the tone. The doll was creepier then Chucky and the twisted ending left me with nightmares for a few weeks. I literally was afraid of all dolls for a few years. Thinking one would somehow come to life, with an evil grin on it's face and try to harm me. Watching the Puppet Master and Poltergeist (that evil clown who dragged the girl under the bed) didn't help the situation either. After about 10yrs I watch the movie again and the ending still scared me, even though I knew what to expect. Karen Black did an excellent job in all three films. I wished the first 2 stories were as good as the last, but they just weren't. For the people reviewing this and saying, "It's not scary at all." You really would need to watch it back in the 70's to get the full effect. By today's standard, it's really not that scary at all. I've seen all the Chucky movies and even though some of it was shocking, none of these films scared me like Trilogy of Terror. Even the sequel wasn't as scary as the original. So if you can find this film at your rental store, definitely check it out. I give it a 7 out of 10 from my 70's viewing. If I viewed it for the first time today, I'd give it a 5.
I long for the days when an odd, slightly exotic/slightly zonked actress like Karen Black can make it in Hollywood. There was a time in the mid-'70s when--every time you turned around--Karen Black was in a new movie. I'm still discovering early movies she starred or co-starred in that I never knew about ("Cisco Pike", "Portnoy's Complaint", "The Pyx"). She and director Dan Curtis were quite a pair, here masterfully zipping through three short creep-outs in which Karen plays four fascinating women. The last segment, "Amelia", has incredible point-of-view camera-work, seamlessly swooping around corners, which rivals even "The Shining". Karen is very much attuned to the eccentricities of character (in fact, when she played a 'normal' woman, like the lead in "Day Of The Locust", she came off almost colorless), but Dan Curtis winds this toy up and Karen runs with it. The first two segments are psychological suspense studies of ruined-women-turned-triumphant, the third story turns the tables and makes woman the victim. It's a terrific feat, worth talking about even after 26 years.
