Product Description

Product Description

A French lieutenant follows a ghostly beauty to a baron's Baltic coast castle. Made by Roger Corman.


Back when Jack Nicholson was a Hollywood unknown appearing in Roger Corman quickies such as Crybaby Killer and Little Shop of Horrors, it wasn't unusual for Corman to make a movie in just a few days. That was the case with this nifty little thriller, which was filmed in just three days using the same sets that Corman had used in his Boris Karloff thriller The Raven, which Corman had finished ahead of schedule. In fact, the sets were being torn down almost as fast as Corman could film them, but that hasn't stopped this moody little gem from acquiring a modicum of cult status over the years. Karloff plays the alleged baron of an isolated castle on the Baltic coast, where a Napoleonic officer (played by Nicholson!) appears after becoming intrigued by the presence of a mysterious and beautiful woman. Karloff's baron has a dark history, of course, and creepy atmosphere makes up for the minimal plot, which makes The Terror a vintage treat for horror fans. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

No wonder there are no reviews made. I saw it on tv yesterday. It was terrible. It had a disgustingly simple plot.(One of the things I hate most in a movie or novel)The locale was far from being scary.By the way,I am a Jack Nicholson fan.(He was awesome as ever!)His existence was the only thing that kept me from turning off the tv. Well, worst vice is advice but please take it. Do not even bother to check out the details on the net.
PS.This is the first film that I've seen directed by Roger Corman. I will buy his book on making movies in Hollywood and never losing a dime.If his other movies are directed in the same manner that won't be a surprise for me.(But you never know! )
