Let’s go back to 1975 for one of the decades most notable horror movie characters.
The movie is called Trilogy Of Terror because it has three terror-filled stories. Each story is based on unrelated short stories by Richard Matheson.
The first follows a college professor who seeks vengeance over her date rape; the second is about twin sisters who have a bizarre relationship; and the third, perhaps one of the most popular of all horror stories focuses on a woman terrorized by a Zuni fetish doll in her apartment.
Chicago born Karen Black stars in all three segments, and plays dual roles in the second.
The film was first aired as an ABC Movie of the Week on March 4, 1975. Black initially turned down the project, but reconsidered when her then-husband, Robert Burton, was cast in the first segment “Julie”. A television film sequel, Trilogy of Terror II, written and also directed by Dan Curtis was released in 1996
