The Terror is groundbreaking in a number of ways. It is Jack Nicholson's first film, it has Boris Karloff, and it's a Roger Corman flick. However, this does nothing at ALL to make this a decent movie.
Jack Nicholson plays an army officer in Napoleon's army who comes across a mysterious woman on one of his journeys. He stops at the castle he sees her in and realizes there are strange goings on afoot. The Baron who owns the castle shows him hospitality, but only grudgingly. And the other inhabitants of the castle seem to want to kill him. Can he get to the bottom of things before they kill him. Do you care? I didn't.
Usually, even the most wretched Corman plots still have fun characters who take up the slack. This low-budge schlock-fest is what gave Rog a bad name. He hacked this film out in a few days to make a quick buck...and it shows. There isn't much of a plot, most of the actors are either drawing a check or have no clue what they're doing, and the so-called "atmosphere" of the movie is just grainy film. Unless you just have to see this for Nicholson or you're a Roger Corman devotee, I would avoid this one like a plague.
