 I remember the doll from Trilogy of Terror from my childhood. It scared the Hell out of me back in the day. I never knew they made a sequel. I'll have to check it out, although I'm sure its terrible by comparison.

Salem’s Lot scared the crap out of me when it came out. Remember the kid floating at the window wanting to come in? I was 11 back then...my mom almost didnt let me watch the rest of it after I had bad dreams...lol...Good times (=

me too!

I was 8 when Salem's Lot came out. My parents started to watch it and it was that opening scene with the kid tapping on the window. Scared the shit out of me and they banned me from watching it. Still had nightmares.

 Flyinroo, the sequel to Trilogy of Terror DOES suck. Why they even attempted it is beyond me, as the oroiginal is easily the scariest made-for-tv movie ever.

Salem's lot has always beem\n my favorite Stephen king novel but  I thought the 78 tv movie was only so-so. I t was well made and had a great cast but they made too many crucial changes to the story, particulary changing Barlow from a Dracula-type evil mastermind into a growling Nosferatu. Even still it's miles above that truly weird remake.

 You HAVE to include Dark Night of the Scarecrow in part two of this piece.  Hands down it is one of the best-made TV horror films.

 Stephen King's IT deserves honorable mention even though it totally fell apart towards the end.

As soon as I saw the title to this article on the home page I thought, "He better have included Trilogy of Terror and its Ameila segment!"

You're lucky. I mail Devil Dolls to those who displease me.

 Duel was, and still is, a classic. It is one of the best suspense thrillers ever. This was Spielberg when he still knew how to make movies, before his formula of special effects, disrespecful/foul-mouth teens, and idiotic adults came to fruition. I own the DVD, and watch it about twice a year. 

The original Salem's Lot scared the hershey squirts out of me as a kid. 

I also have fond memories of a TV movie about Gargoyles. My wife still thinks that is one of the scariest movies she ever saw.

 ^^ dumbest statement of the day ^^

Guys Dark Night of the Scarecrow are both good TV movies but I am concentrating strictly on films from the 1970s.  Dark night of the Scarecrow was 1981 and It was from 1990
