            The Terror (1963)

             

            The Terror, from 1963, is an American “horror” film produced and directed by Roger Corman. It stars an old Boris Karloff, a young Jack Nicholson and two unknowns, Sandra Knight, Dick Miller. This stinker is famous for being filmed in less than a week on leftover film sets from other AIP productions, including The Haunted Palace and The Raven. The movie was also released as Lady of the Shadows, The Castle of Terror and The Haunting. To call it a horror film is a bit of a stretch, it’s not as bad as some people make it out to be. But I guess I like slow paced films more than most, because this is a sssslllloooowwww paced film. Nicholson seems almost sedated.
