TRILOGY OF TERROR Going Blue
That’s BLU, actually, as in BluRay. As with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, which I reported about over at our sister site, zombies.org, this week, about it getting a BluRay release of its own, I’m surprised that TRILOGY OF TERROR didn’t already have one. Even moreso than with the Romero zombie classic (Second mention this week of zombies on this site!), because NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD has been readily available for chump change for some time, due to its lapsed copyright, while TRILOGY OF TERROR has been scarce, comparatively speaking, and considering just how popular a cult classic the latter constitutes. (A BIG one.) Created by Dan Curtis, creator of DARK SHADOWS four years after the groundbreaking series went off the air, TRILOGY OF TERROR was a made-for-TV movie. Surprising, given how scary it was. Dan Curtis did not really care for Horror, but he sure knew how to do it well.
The most popular of the three stories comprising the “trilogy” is that of the Zuni fetish doll, a nasty little critter that comes to life and menaces the film’s protagonist, Karen Black. It’s a scream (pun intended). The whole film is a worthy effort, and well worth seeking out if you haven’t seen it.
I’m glad it’s getting a BluRay release–but what I really want is to see a Funko Zuni doll!
