Third Times the Charm

Trilogy of Terror is a made for TV movie about a trio of horror stories. All of which star the same actress in different roles. Of course I wasn’t born in the 70’s, but I am aware of how big this movie got when it first aired. Although I would recommend just watching the third story. Which is the only story that anyone remembers. But I’m getting ahead of myself. The first story is titled “Julie.” Something about a teacher seducing her students or something. Kinda forgettable. The second story is titled “Millicent and Therese.” Something about a woman with split personalities. A bit more interesting, but still forgettable. Really it’s the third story titled “Amelia” that anyone cares about. It’s a single character story about a woman who purchases something called a Zuni doll (for some reason). Things take a unexpected turn when the doll comes to life and tries to kill her. I love the living doll premise. Though it’s hard to say whether the doll is scary or funny. It’s the noise it makes. So if you get your hands on this movie, skip the first two and just watch the third.
