Trilogy of Terror (1975) Review:

Trilogy of Terror combines three different short horror stories ranking from the supernatural doll to the psychological crime and the madness case. The stories are pretty short, making the combination of them no longer than 80 minutes. All the stories have one thing in common: Karen Black, and no need to say that she is excellent in all three stories.

The first short is a psychological horror story about a young man who stalk and abuse her literacy teacher (played of course by Karen Black). The scenario is great from start to end, with some good surprises.

The second story is also a psychological one, but playing this time on the madness concept. The plot is interesting, but this time the final twist is really predictable. Still, Karen Black makes it special just by her presence.


The third one is about a killing doll. Because of the way the doll moves, the incredible audio behind, and some very clever shots, the dolls manages to be quite scary, or at least stressful, despite and obviously shortage of special effects. A great directing work that deserves to be pointed out.

Overall, because the stories are nothing spectacular, but are entertaining, making Trilogy of Terror one of the very best compilation of short horror along with Creepshow and V/H/S/2 in my opinion.
