Karen Black and The Zuni Fetish Doll From Trilogy of Terror

Trilogy of Terror
Who is the most frightening movie villain of all time? The question is often asked. But to a five year old boy Watching Trilogy of terror on ABC's movie of the week, there can be only one answer: The Zuni Fetish Doll. This little freak caused me nightmares for years. I literally couldn't reach under a couch until I was 27 years old. Anyone who remember watching Trilogy of Terror knows the Zuni fetish Doll appears in the last story, and it ends with actress Karen Black squatting like a savage on the floor, jamming a huge knife into the floor over and over.

Karen Black died today. She appeared in over 100 movies, including Easy Rider, Nashville, and The Great Gatsby. I can never forget the final scene of Five Easy Pieces when she comes out of the diner. In her late career she became known for doing a lot of low budget horror movies, but was in some real classics like Burnt Offerings, Trilogy of Terror, and House of 1000 Corpses (debatable).  Pin It
