THE PLOT:

Three stories of terror. The first involves a star football player and a beautiful but repressed teacher and they both have secret agendas. The second involves twins, one nice and one very naughty and lastly, a woman buys a Zuni Fetish Doll as a present but learns that the legend is no mere story.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Amazing how Karen Black plays four characters in this movie. Now there are some minor character issues and my biggest complaint of all is in the Zuni Fetish Doll story, the chain that keeps the evil spirit contained just falls off, for no reason. She didn't remove it or anything, it just drops off. That's the only part that made no sense to me. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

The story works, Karen Black is amazing and I do agree with Zedd that the part about the chain just dropping off for no reason makes no sense. 9 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORIES (For the most part, the stories work.)
+ CAST (The whole cast does a great job.)
+ KAREN BLACK (Four parts, that's incredible.)
+ EFFECTS (Pretty good for the time.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- CHARACTER ISSUES (There are minor character issues.)

...AND FINALLY...

- CHAIN (Why did the chain just drop off the Zuni Fetish Doll? Why?)
