Movie Reviews

Master Movies offers best quality DVD of The Terror
Charlie LaPat (charlie@prodigy.net) | Victorville, California | 10/25/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"WARNING: If you are looking for a DVD of the Terror, there are some awful copies available! The disc from Master Movies is by FAR the best available. There are no extras to speak of except for some biographical info (some incorrect) but the film looks surprisingly good, especially if you boost the black level on your player. AVOID THE OTHER VERSIONS. The Master Movies version is the one with the non-descript grey cover with a small picture of Nicholson. No extras, blah cover, excellent picture for a public domain film."
A caveat to DVD purchasers

"WARNING to anyone thinking of purchasing the D-Vision DVD edition of THE TERROR: It is not the letterbox edition touted in Amazon's writeup (my sole reason for ordering it). REPEAT: It is not widescreen; it is in full-screen format, and appears to have been mastered from an EP VHS source."
Jack And Boris, Together Again...

"Jack Nicholson plays a french officer in Napoleon's army who ends up at the castle of Baron Von Leppe (Boris Karloff), after wandering around lost for seven months. He's met a mysterious girl who just might be a ghost! Von Leppe is pretty mysterious too! He's been in the castle for 20 years after murdering his adulterous wife, Ilsa. Is Ilsa the same girl that Jack ran into? And what about the strange witch who lives near the castle? And the hawk that seems to possess human intelligence? THE TERROR is one of Roger Corman's better films, leaving his infamous rubber monsters behind, in order to get under our skin with creeping undercurrents of fear and dread. Nicholson is great, actually showing some of the snearing stuff that would one day make him a megastar. Karloff is himself, in one of his better latter-day performances. Also watch for Jonathan Haze (Little Shop Of Horrors) as Gustav, and Dick Miller (Bucket Of Blood) as Von Leppe's faithful servant. Enjoy..."
Boris and Roger, you gotta love 'em.

"For some reason, I like this film. It had atmosphere, a deserted castle, lightening and thunder, and Boris Karloff. The price of the "Master Movie" edition for this DVD is unbeatable, but then you're not getting wide screen, which is a let down. But as far as I know, there are, at this time, no wide screen editions of "The Terror" on DVD or VHS. However, the picture quality is great, and sound quality is acceptable. I'm really disappointed, though, not to see more of the Poe classic Corman films on DVD, yet, in wide screen, of course. A better buy, though a little more expensive, is "Tales of Terror". Excellent color, wide screen, beautiful sound, and of course, Vincent Price, Basil Rathbone, and Peter Lorre."
