Trilogy Of Terror - 1975 - 6/10 (composite)

Part One, “Julie,” college guy bags his introverted English professor. Yawn.
Part Two, “Millicent/Therese,” sisters (one mousey, one frisky) snipe. Zzzzzz.
Part Three, “Amelia,” finds woman torn between spending night with obsessive mother and the new boyfriend she is keenly interested in.
Why she even bought him a birthday gift. A curio.
A fetish doll of a Zuni warrior, its spirit restrained by the golden chain encircling its waist.
Of course, if the chain were to somehow slip off . . .

Hair raising thriller still packs a punch, helped by Karen Black’s all-in performance.
Goofy nonsense, but my God, that doll is an remorseless block of fury.
Unforgettable adaptation of Richard Matheson’s “Prey.”
