Through some odd discussion thread - as usual - I asked Jenny & Aaron if they'd ever seen the movie where a little tiki doll comes to life and runs around with his little spear, yelling "ay ay ay ay ay ay" as he tries to kill the woman in the movie... no glimmer of recognition...

The internet proved me not to be delusional... the movie, Trilogy of Terror, from 1975, stars none other than Karen Black. Turns out it's a bit of a cult classic. My brother called right then and I asked him, "remember that movie with the tiki doll...?" and he replied, "ay ay ay ay ay ay ay". Even though he was so small and should've easily been drop-kicked, that itsy-bitsy, biting, stabbing, freaky little tiki doll managed to scare the crap out of us.

The movie is now in my Netflix queue and I hope to be sharing the glorious cheesiness of it with J&A very soon.

PS - Aaron, you might not want to look at THIS LINK.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, SOOO MUCH! I have been looking for this movie for so long. I was wondering what this movie was called and I could not find it anywhere. I saw this when I was young and was scared to death. I'm so glad someone knew what it was called. Thanks again.
