Having recently rewatched the #DanCurtis classic 1️⃣9️⃣7️⃣5️⃣ tv-movie #TrilogyofTerror starring #KarenBlack in anticipation of the upcoming blu ray release, how could I not pick this classic AND it allows me to highlight this amazing art by SHAMEful Clutter friend & fave @ibtrav / #ibtrav (although slightly edited by me to highlight AMELIA's scary sharp knife like chompers post her ordeal with the #africanzunidoll AND a HUGE kitchen knife‼️) PS- the glorious unedited version of the art is in his IG feed.
Another day, another Blu-ray release for me to drool over. Kino is releasing both of the original Kolchak TV movies- The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler- on October 2nd.
Starring Darren McGavin. Produced by Dan Curtis. And written by Richard Matheson.
They're basically 70's paranoid conspiracy flicks with a supernatural twist. The X-Files meets All the Presidents Men.
Both are super cool movies, a notch above most 70s TV as Dan Curtis stuff usually was. I believe Night Stalker is still one of the top rated TV movies ever.
I bought both of these on a DVD double set years ago when they first came out.
But I either sold them or they are in a box somewhere in storage.
Rumor has it that Dan Curtis’ 1975 TV Anthology Movie “Trilogy of Terror” release date is being announced sometime soon (EDIT: Word from Kino, it’ll be this week) from @kinolorber #kinolorberstudioclassics ! More info when it’s official announced!
Three stories interwoven together. The first, about a college student infatuated with his teacher. The second, a paranoid tale of two sisters - one good, the other evil, and the third about an African tribal doll that comes to life and terrorizes a woman in her apartment. #trilogyofterror#dancurtis#anthologyfilm
Halloween Countdown, Day 114🎃🎃🎃
Trilogy of Terror
Directed by Dan Curtis
A classic horror anthology that tells three separate tales of tormented women. In the first story, Julie Eldridge is a repressed college teacher who is blackmailed by one of her students for a past indiscretion in which she played an unwilling part. But the student is unaware that Julie plots to turn the tables on him the first chance she gets. In the second story, Millicent Larimore is a plain looking, almost reclusive woman with lives with her amoral twin sister Therese whom delights in tormenting her. However, only their doctor who visits from time to time knows the real thing behind the scene. In the final story, Amelia in a solo horror story monologue is a Mother-dominated woman who buys an African Zuni fetish doll for her latest boyfriend in which the doll comes to life and terrorizes her in her own apartment.
