Scary As Hell When Your 10yrs Old
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.
