Made all the more Great by the Zuni Fetish Doll.
9 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never got around to watching the original Trilogy Of Terror,but in some form or another I would either in passing hear from someone about the first entry and even in one situation find myself staring face to face with a model replica that my local comic book store had perched high above one of the shelves. Bearing a price tag I could never at the age of 14 mustered from weeks of Chores. So One night I was scrolling through films to watch when I came across Trilogy Of Terror 2.

THE GRAVEYARD RATS:It starts off rather basic with a story of a cheating wives attempts to bump off her debilitated old husband with the help of her lover. I really liked this one since it hearkens back to that sort of Tales from the crypt and house of Mystery vibe

BOBBI: A mother Loses her son in an accidental drowning. While the husband is away she decides to attempt to resurrect her son to grave consequences. The lighting they used in this gives the house a very eerie and drawn out look.

HE WHO KILLS: This one literally had me terrified. It takes place shortly after the events of the first encounter with the Zuni Fetish Doll as the police turn the doll over to a Dr. Simpson. This doll is the stuff of nightmares and the effects to achieve an almost relentless doll that is quick and dangerous makes you wonder if Chucky and the cast of Puppetmaster seem as though they are standing still. This one I can say was my absolute favourite and I plan on revisiting the first Trilogy Of Terror. I recommend this film for a watch if you haven't seen the first and even if you have.
