Editorial Reviews

Starring Jack Nicholson and Boris KarloffProduced by Roger Corman with the help of an associate producer named Francis Ford Coppolla The Terror stars a young Jack Nicholson as Andre Duvalier a French soldier who has become separated from his unit. Andre meets a young lady named Helene as he is wandering along some coastline and falls in love with her. She then disappears. He embarks on a quest to find Helene eventually tracking her to a spooky old castle. There he meets Baron von Leppe played by Boris Karloff and learns that the girl he saw is the spitting image of the Baron s wife who has been dead for twenty years. He eventually learns the story of the Baroness violent death but he just can t believe that the woman he met is actually a ghost.The film hurtles along to a shattering conclusion where nothing is as it seems and the viewer never knows what will happen next. The Terror has been retransferred to deliver true high definition on Blu-ray.System Requirements:Running Time: 81 minutesFormat: BLU-RAY DISC Genre: DRAMA/CLASSICS UPC: 658899503296 Manufacturer No: 329

Customer Reviews

Don't watch it because it's good - watch it because it's FUN.
Bruce Rux
THE TERROR is all the proof you need that, just because you've got the resources at hand, doesn't mean you need to make a movie.
C. Dennis Moore
Despite its unusual and rushed origins, though, I found The Terror to be an impressive, strongly plot-driven film.

WARNING: If you are looking for a DVD of the Terror, there are some awful copies available! The disc from Master Movies is by FAR the best available. There are no extras to speak of except for some biographical info (some incorrect) but the film looks surprisingly good, especially if you boost the black level on your player. AVOID THE OTHER VERSIONS. The Master Movies version is the one with the non-descript grey cover with a small picture of Nicholson. No extras, blah cover, excellent picture for a public domain film.

There is a lot to talk about concerning 1963's The Terror, but the most fascinating thing of all is the fact that Roger Corman actually made a creepy, impressive film for once in his life. Of course, I can't help but think he had a little bit of help by a young associate producer named Francis Coppola. As for the film itself, it definitely deserves its cult horror film status. It features Boris Karloff, it maintains a wonderfully gloomy atmosphere throughout, boasts some pretty decent special effects, and it actually features a good story with some surprising twists and turns at the end. It also stars a young Jack Nicholson, which certainly helps its popularity - unfortunately, though, this is probably Nicholson's worst performance ever, as he sometimes rushes through his lines without immersing himself in the character.

Nicholson plays Andre Duvalier, a French soldier who has become separated from his unit. You can tell he's French because he wears a fancy uniform but doesn't seem inclined to actually engage in any sort of battle, is rather rude to those he meets, and basically expects everyone to do whatever he commands of them. Andre meets a young lady named Helene as he is wandering along some coastline and apparently falls in love with her - despite the fact she keeps disappearing and just possibly tries to lead him to his death. He ends up being cared for by a strange old woman, who tells him there is no girl in that area. Still, he persists in finding Helene, eventually tracking her to a spooky old castle. There, he meets Baron von Leppe (Karloff) and learns that the girl he saw is the spitting image of the Baron's wife, who has been dead for twenty years.

If you grew up in the sixties you probably husseled off down to the local cinema to chomp popcorn, slurp soda and watch a film like this, I know I did.
Compaired to todays output it is about as terrifing as chocklate ice cream.
You have a very young Jack Nicholson and a very old Boris Karloff performing this little drama on sets you should recognize from a dozen other "B" Horror films.
Nicholeson's preformance forshadows his later success.
For its time, this is an above average film, an excellent example of the type and period which is why I give it a 5.
I found it well worth watching.
I quite enjoyed it, but that is dating myself.

WARNING to anyone thinking of purchasing the D-Vision DVD edition of THE TERROR: It is not the letterbox edition touted in Amazon's writeup (my sole reason for ordering it). REPEAT: It is not widescreen; it is in full-screen format, and appears to have been mastered from an EP VHS source.

The history of the movie is far more interesting than the movie, itself. Corman had three extra days after his prematurely wrapped The Raven shoot, and tossed this thing together off the top of his (and everybody else's) head to end up making two features for the price of one. Considering the circumstances, the thing is a masterpiece.
Of course, the finished product neither knows nor cares about the circumstances, which is why this movie is doubly entertaining. The mix of costuming and acting styles, the endless anachronisms throwing the audience out of suspension of disbelief that they are in Napoleonic era Germany (or is it supposed to be Spain? and if so, why so many German names? and if not, where does one get a seaside cliff in Germany?) - not to mention the genuinely really bad acting from pretty much everyone involved (including Karloff, who almost certainly didn't take it seriously), and the grossly mixed accents of the cast - make this one endlessly entertaining, in that drop-your-jaw, I-can't-believe-adult-human-beings-actually-got-together-and-made-this-thing kind of way.
It actually has a plot, which if you're really attentive and diligent you can pick out in the last five minutes of the movie, and if you do, it's terribly clever and grossly improbable, which just makes it all that much more fun.
But you won't care about that. What you really want to see is Jack Nicholson performing flatter than a block of wood, his then-wife Sandra Knight with an accent and acting style flatter still (though she is quite beautiful), Dorothy Neumann as a cackling revenge-driven old witch, Bronx-accented Dick Miller as a supposedly very German manservant, and Karloff struggling to keep a straight face given all the preceding impediments.

Released in 1964, it was once said that horror films great Boris Karloff owed producer/director Roger Corman,time from the filming of a previous movie and Karloff payed Corman acting in "The Terror" co-starring the then young rookie actor Jack Nicholson as a stranded soldier in Napoleon's invading army in a coastal region of Germany. Co-starring in this thriller are Sandra Knight, Jonathan Haze, Dick Miller and other Corman's regulars. Definitely one of Corman's "B" movies, this film keeps you on the edge of your seat, its atmospheric and a gothic horror classic. This film is definitely on what I call the Roger Corman Hall of Fame, it belongs in the collection of every classic horror movie fan.
