Trivia

In the first segment, "Julie", when Chad goes to get a room, he uses the fake name of Jonathan Harker, a name taken from the Bram Stoker novel "Dracula". See more »

Goofs

When Amelia is first attacked by the doll, it is in her living room and she goes nowhere near her apartment's front door. After managing to trap the doll in the suitcase, she then immediately runs to the kitchen and gets a screwdriver, then runs to her front door, where apparently the bolt has been bent, trapping her in. But why did she go and get the screwdriver before she even knew the bolt was bent? See more »

One of the best horror films ever made for network TV.
30 December 2003 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

Karen Black excels playing four different roles in this made-for-TV horror trilogy adapted from the works of Richard Matheson. In `Julie,' a meek college professor turns the tables on a student who drugs, rapes and attempts to blackmail her. `Millicent and Therese' details a pair of feuding sisters; a frigid, jealous brunette and a kinky, malicious blonde. Finally, 'Amelia' (also known as `Prey') details Black's horrific battle with a re-animated Zuni fetish doll inhabited by the spirit of a bloodthirsty African warrior. Although the first tale doesn't hold together very well and the second is too predictable, this is well worth sitting through for the final segment and, as always, Karen Black rocks in all four roles. `Amelia' is also available separate on video as TERROR OF THE DOLL, by the way. It was followed by an OK 1996 made-for-cable sequel starring Lysette Anthony.

Score: 7 out of 10
