    Description

    "Zuni Hunter" Fetish hero puppet from Trilogy of Terror. (ABC-TV, 1975) Vintage original iconic creature puppet constructed of cast resin head, torso, and limbs expertly assembled on articulating metal armature allowing arms to swing, legs to swivel, and head and jaw to bobble. Studio painted and finished to appear as carved wood with black string hair added, white painted jagged teeth, and wrapped in fabric skirt to complete the look of the unforgettable character. The brainchild of legendary horror, science fiction and fantasy writer Richard Matheson, "Amelia" was adapted from his short story, "Prey". To this day, the visions of Amelia being terrorized by the vicious, tiny warrior remain indelible in the minds of audiences. The puppet, measuring 13 x 6.5 x 4.5 in., retains silver gaffer's tape over a 1.5 x .05 in. slot carved in the left back, giving access to the hole in the sternum where a pin held the gold charm chain (not present) that prevented the fetish doll's spirit from coming to life. Early in the story, the chain falls off, releasing the spirit and unfolding terror in this horror classic. The instantly recognizable prop exhibits age, minor production wear, and light soiling. In vintage fine condition. Without question, one of the most iconic artifacts of horror from the past half century.
