In one of his first-ever roles, a young Jack Nicholson stars as Lt. Andre Duvalier, a soldier in Napoleon's army in 19th century France, separated from his regiment. He awakens on a beach to the sight of a strange woman who leads him to the gothic, towering castle that serves as home to eerie Baron Von Leppe (Boris Karloff). But, as Duvalier soon discovers, nothing is what it seems in this ghastly, haunted mansion of death!This underground favorite was made in classic Roger Cormanfashion, making the most of his resources to bring yet another film to life on aminimal budget for his producers at American International Pictures.Short on time himself (there were more movies to be made!), Cormanleft it to a few of the aspiring directors within his crew (among them, Jack Hill, a young Francis Coppola, and even Jack Nicholson taking a turn behind the camera for a few scenes) to help see the film to completion. The Terror would go on to become a drive-in favorite and late-night TV staple, also appearing under the titles The Terror, Lady Of The Shadows and The Castle of Terror.
This is low-budget filmmaking at it's finest! The Terror delivers a haunting and frightening thriller that is even better now that we can watch it restored and remastered! Read morePublished 5 months ago by Marisa Lloreda

The movie itself is a classic. The only problem is the dvd portion sticks. The disc surface has bubbles. Read morePublished on November 27, 2012 by Louis J. Pacifico
