Once you know the story behind the movie you can't help but love it.
The script is erratic and the pacing often poor, but it's a treat to watch the great Karloff and a baby-faced Nicholson square off, and the story packs a couple of nice surprises toward the end.
Nicholson gave the best analysis of the film in a later-career interview: "It was incredibly bad."
Scene by scene, it's a delightful Ovidian creature
Moody, not-quite-coherent suspense
Tepid, shoddy stuff despite its pedigree.
The Terror is more boring than it is scary.
It didn't give me "The Terror", but this still managed to be a pretty enjoyable Poe-esque chiller. It is interesting seeing young Jack Nicholson in the lead role before he became a huge star. The film that was essentially made around 3 days worth of footage of legendary horror icon Boris Karloff. Roger Corman filmed the Boris Karloff-footage and passed on the film to young directors like Francis Ford Coppola and even Jack Nicholson directed a few scenes. For a film that was passed down to many filmmakers, the story is surprisingly coherent. The film manages to conjure up a fun chilling atmosphere with it's foggy grave sites, dark corridors, and gritty film quality. Boris Karloff is awesome and Jack Nicholson does a good job carrying the film but his acting is not as mind-blowing as his future films. This movie is public domain so you can easily watch this movie on youtube. Go ahead and check it out.
I love seeing Boris Karloff, Jack Nicholson, and Dick Miller all in the same movie together, but the material just isn't all that great. It's the typical haunted house mystery...not even the actors have anything really that good to work with. I just love having this group of people assembled and for me that makes me like it, not because it's that good of a movie.
I really like this movie, it has some great stars, and the story is really cool. This is a spooky horror movie, and I enjoyed it.
Whoa! This movie is boring. It's not exciting or interesting, it doesn't even try to offer thrills, and it's not even funny in a fun old horror flick type way, it's just sad.
