Tribute to Karen Black with Creepy 70′s Horror Movie “Trilogy of Terror” clip!
August 9, 2013
When I first read the news yesterday of Karen Black’s passing (age 74) after an ongoing battle with Cancer, I was struck by a combination of sadness, disappointment and nostalgia; when I think of Karen Black my brain automatically triggers back to the first horror movie I ever watched as a kid – which was the 3rd short of the “Trilogy of Terror” movie…
Although this short had it’s elements of comedy, it’s still extremely creepy, and a testament to how great 70′s horror was, and an unfortunate reminder of how far most modern-day horror films have fallen off and missed the mark. We need more horror like this today!
In honor of Karen, give this a watch (unless you’re rattled by horror films)…
The short starts out a couple minutes into the story, and is broken down into two videos. Be sure to stay to the very end of the story to see what I deem to be one of the creepiest moments of cinema I’ve ever witnessed; this moment sticks with me till this day, and is a driving force in my mind when I write my own material.
So Karen, in honor of a long, consistent and prosperous career, we salute you!
And thank you for this memorable performance…
