I absolutely LOVE American Horror Story (Asylum being my favorite season so far), but it's never really scared me.  Disturbed me, yes.  But never really scared me.  I did have one edge of my seat suspense moment though in Asylum when

Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Todd,

Do you happen to know if that was the first of the 'talking doll horror' television episodes from any series?  I don't recall seeing it in any film either, but there may be some examples out there.

The "Home" episode of The X-Files is definitely scary, as are several from Millennium (any with the "Man-Dog Beast" vision).

 

There is an Outer Limits episode from the 1980s that I always thought was creepy -- "The Shadow."  Those who have seen it know what I mean.

Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it meant to roast in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

"Trilogy of Terror" with the Zuni doll scared the crap out of me back in the '70s.

That final image of Karen Black from that film was seared into my memory and caused many anxious moments.

An 8yo recently asked me what;s the scariest movie I'd ever seen.   It took me about 10 seconds to come up with my

top 3 -- Halloween which I saw in college when it first came out,   Rosemary's Baby which I think I saw on TV in the mid 70's

and the Karen Black part of the Trilogy of Terror (Chucky ain't got nothing on that doll).   

 

Only later did i think of Alien and some of the old Night Gallery and Twilight zone episodes, so I think this is a turn your frontal lobes

off and let the Amygdyla talk question..

I've never seen it, but have heard about it for decades. I was about 14 when it was shown, but have never been able to find it, even with DVDs, internet sites, etc.

 

Might be kind of a lame question, but is there a source somewhere so I can finally see this?

I saw Trilogy of Terror when it was originally broadcast and the Zuni doll segment just scared the heck out of me.  Hostile animated dolls have always creeped me out.  "The Doll" from season 1 of Night Gallery really got to me.  I think it was the teeth on the doll that really unnerved me.

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Walter,

For me, it was the teeth and the sound effect as it moved across the floor and then attacked its victim.  I find dolls in general unnerving when they are used in horror films or stories.  Some of the series created by R. L. Stine (e.g., GoosebumpsThe Haunting Hour, etc.) use them frequently and they are fairly creepy in those shows.
