Karen Black, Waiting For Mother. While Squatting In 'Hunt' Position And Hacking Kitchen Floor With Machete...
...After, of course, being 'infiltrated' by evil spirit of 'Zuni Fetish Doll.' This, the final scene, in the made-for-TV version of Matheson's short story, 'Prey' (from, Trilogy of Terror (Special Edition)).
I was an impressionable youngster upon my first viewing of this one. And it horrified me about as much as Ms. Black's performance in the final scene of 'Burnt Offerings.'
Her films, done with director D. Curtis: Phenomenal, to me; each one, 'sticking' to my memory, like a piece of discordant, peculiar music, difficult to discard from mind.
From this tale, I began reading King, Etchison, Bloch, and more.
The rest is 'history.'
