Halloween movies that scarred me for life: Trilogy of Terror!

So Halloween is a few days away, and I'm reminded of the scariest TV movie I've ever seen. Actually, it might be the scariest movie I've ever seen, period. Maybe it was because I was a little kid, and maybe it was because I watched it alone on Halloween one year, but the original Trilogy of Terror scared the hell out of me.

The movie is split into three different segments. While the first two stories are interesting and well done, it's the third segment that scarred me for life.

All-time scariest TV characters -- #8: Zuni fetish doll

Trilogy of TerrorCharacter: Zuni fetish doll
Show: Trilogy of Terror
Episode: "Amelia"

Have you ever seen this (the original Trilogy of Terror, not the '90s remake)? It completely and utterly terrified me as a ten year-old.

The TV movie consisted of three short films, all starring Karen Black in different roles. The first one has her as a teacher who is blackmailed by a student, but she gets the upper hand on him in a creepy way. The second has Black playing twin sisters. But it's the third story that freaked me out. "Amelia" has Black alone in her apartment, being chased around by a little doll that has a knife in it's hand. It sounds silly, I know. How can a doll hurt a grown woman? But the little bastard is vicious and relentless, and it's entirely convincing. When Amelia thinks she has killed the doll by trapping it in the oven, we find out that it takes over her soul. The last scene has Amelia calling her mom to come over, so she can kill her.

Somehow I don't think this ran on The Wonderful World of Disney.
