Movie Info

This horror feature should entertain fans of the blood and guts but ultimately fails to live up to its title. Royal ancestors feel the wrath of the curse of the condemned witch Mad Dolly L.E. Mack, who spews forth her prophetic venom while she is burned at the stake. The victims suffer death by having their heads removed in various fashions, getting their limbs caught in animal traps, knife wounds, and other methods of popular medieval torture. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Terror

It starts off pretty slow and corny, and ends extremely cool and gritty. There's a lot of Evil Dead feelings in his (which wasn't released until after this), and while there isn't a ton of gore, there is some nice camp and eerie moments, plus a rather cool though brisk ending. Ultimately, it drags on for too long, but the last 30 minutes are worth a check-out at least.

Terror Starring: John Nolan and Carolyn Courage Director: Norman J. Warren The friends and associates of a young movie producer and studio owner (Nolan) start dying messily after he completes a movie based on his family's history. Is it really a 300-year-old witch's curse that's reasserting itself, or is there someone (or some thing) else behind the slayings? I understand that the forces of evil are inscrutible and driven by motives that mere mortals can't understand. This, however, should not be the case when it comes to movies featuring evil forces. Movies need to have some semblence of a sensible plot, and they need to give some sort of connection between back story and what unfolds. In the case of "Terror", we have evil forces doing evil things that make no sense whether viewed in the context of the ancient curse, or in the context of facts revealed by characters on the screen. The coolest scene (where a forest seemingly comes to live and lifts a car into the tree-tops) seems like it was just thrown in because it was just that--cool. "Terror" has some good scares and some good acting. It would have been nice if some time had been spent on developing a good script.
