Our Fetish for Zuni

Zuni Fetish Doll, Trilogy of Terror

The Zuni Fetish Doll from 1974’s Trilogy of Terror

The mention of 1974’s Trilogy of Terror sometimes results in a blank stare until I jog it by adding: “you know, the one with the nasty doll that chases a woman around her apartment?”

The memory is suddenly fresh: “That doll scared me so much as a kid! I had nightmares for weeks!”

Yeah, we love that Zuni fetish doll, but why? The answer lies in what he represents. I take a look in “Our Fetish for Zuni: Why we’ll never escape ‘that doll’” over at the Dark Discussions Podcast Article Library here: http://darkdiscussions.com/Pages/article_003.html
