Why buy this DVD? If you are a Roger Corman fan -- this is the clearest copy i've ever owned and i've owned 4 copies. If you are a Boris Karloff fan -- he gives a laid back spine-chilling performance. If you want to see Jack Nicholson's first starring role -- his first role was the sadistic dentist in Corman's Little Shop of Horrors that i hope is remastered into blu ray too.
In the Terror he demonstrates he can act and well. If you like Gothic horror movies that have enough impact that i remember the ending after 50 years. It haunted me for weeks. If you like complicated plots and suprise endings -- this is for you.

From the box: 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, beautiful woman who leads him to the gothic, towering castle that seves as home to eerie Baron Vo Leppe (Karloff). But as Duvalier soon discovers, nothing is what it seems in this ghastly, haunted mansion of death!

DVD: 5.1 surround sound, movie trailer, Digitally restored in Hi Def; original art POSTCARD incl. Before & after restortion demo; transferred fro original 35 mm elements.

HASH(0x95bfc81c) out of 5 stars The Terror on blu ray....too much DNR! but still worth having. April 28 2011
By Monty Britton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Just got to say after the bad print of Kansas City Confidential from this company, I was scared to get this version of The Terror on blu ray. Just like KCC, they DNRd the crap out of this. To the point you're looking at a soft picture. Maybe I am confused, but shouldn't 1080p have plenty of detail and more grain? I admit, this is the best it has looked on home video, but it definitely is not the crisp MGMHD print. Some scenes on this blu ray combo look alright, while others there is no detail. I expect the stock film Corman used to look bad, but not the studio shots. Even the close ups are fuzzy. It is over cropped at 1.85 instead of its 1.66 frame (except for the credits), but at least its anamorphic. The 5.1 sound is horrible, I suggest switching to two channel to utilize the center channel at least. For ten bucks, its not a bad buy (at least it comes with a DVD copy)...but it could've been so much better. But this will have to do until MGM puts it out on blu ray. One interesting note is the American International logo is still at the beginning....I find that interesting, since their films are released by MGM on video.

HASH(0x95c0b2e8) out of 5 stars Finally A TERROR That Isn't Terrible. May 9 2011
By Chip Kaufmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I have searched high and low for a high quality print of THE TERROR, a favorite of mine since I saw it back in 1963, but since it's in the public domain, the numerous VHS and DVD copies have ranged from bad to worse. My search is finally over, for the print in this new DVD/Blu Ray set is almost perfect. The creative and colorful use of lighting, resembling that used by Mario Bava, can now be seen in all its glory and the colors (including the famous butterscotch finale) are sharp and vivid. Although not in the original widescreen ratio, it still looks astonishingly good. For those of you unfamiliar with its history, THE TERROR was cobbled together in a few weeks by 5 different directors including the 26 year old Jack Nicholson who has the starring role. Karloff's scenes were shot in 3 days.

Be advised that while this is not an official MGM release like the other AIP Poe pictures, it is certainly the best copy of the film out there. I cannot speak about the quality of the Blu-Ray disc as I don't have a Blu-Ray player but in order to get the DVD I had to buy the combo pack. I can say that the DVD looks great on my flat screen and sounds great too. In addition to the dialogue, Ronald Stein's memorable score also comes through loud and clear. The packaging also restores the original poster art which clearly states that THE TERROR is a Boris Karloff vehicle not a Jack Nicholson one although that's how it used to be marketed in previous incarnations. In addition it's a rare opportunity to see Jack's then wife Sandra Knight in what is her best known role.

HASH(0x95c0aeb8) out of 5 stars Finally! It's watchable! May 2 2011
By Emmett Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I cannot complain as others have about this transfer. It is, by far, the best representation of the film I have ever seen.

The aspect ratio fills a 16:9 screen and its sound is in 5.1 surround. I thought it sounded terrific!

Also for the first time, I was able to watch the movie all the way through. Because other transfers' images were always so blurry and the sound so muffled, it was almost like watching snow on the screen. I'd lose interest halfway through and fall asleep.

This time, though, the movie grabbed my attention. How could it not? The image and sound were both clear. Happily, I changed my mind from judging the film mediocre to just as intriguing as Roger Corman's other masterpieces, like "The Fall of the House of Usher (1960)," "The Pit and the Pendulum (1961)," "Tales of Terror (1962)," "Tower of London (1962)," "The Haunted Palace (1963)," "The Raven (1963)," "Masque of the Red Death (1964)," and "The Tomb of Ligeia (1965)." It would be awesome to have these MGM features transferred to Blu-ray!

HASH(0x95c0b66c) out of 5 stars Soft...and no time code on the disc. May 1 2011
By Spinner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
The movie is right out lousy, but that's why most people buy it in the first place. As for the bluray, I agree with the other reviewers who claim the picture is too soft and at times even a little blurry. I'm sure a lot of work went in to taking the 35mm elements to the high definition format but I'm honestly not sure the folks who remastered the print for this disk knew what they were doing. There are moments of brilliance here but for the most part its a mixed bag visually. I suppose it beats the crappy dollar store versions we've been accustomed to for the last several decades.

Another complaint of the authoring of this disc is the lack of time coding! To me that seems like such a basic thing, especially if you are trying to get to a certain moment in the disk, not to mention to see how much longer the movie has to go. But not on this one. This might not be a problem for some viewers but for me I like to know how far in the movie I am while watching.

If you can get this on the cheap. Do do (and I'm talking around $5). If you are already a fan of the film and you can put up with some technical issues, buy it. If you are just a curious observer, rent it.

HASH(0x95c0b6cc) out of 5 stars Yes, it's remastered! April 27 2011
By Badwolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
A brief and to the point review to tell those waiting "Buy this set." The movie has been remastered and has Dolby 5.1. As with "Dementia 13," the company Cultra has delivered the version you have been waiting for on Blu-ray or dvd. Buy it! I have a dvdr of MGM HD version and this looks about the same to me. I will take this set over my homemade dvdr any day. Too bad Sony dragged their heels on this one and all of the rest of the "no brainer" instant sale releases!
