The Terror (1963)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

The Terror (1963) France, 18th century. Lieutenant Andre Duvalier has been accidentally separated from his regiment. He is wandering near the coast when he sees a young woman. He asks the road to Coldon, where he hopes to rejoin his regiment. But the woman doesn't answer, doesn't even greet him and walks away. Eventually she takes him to the sea, where she disappears in rough water. Andre loses conscience when he is trying to following her, and is attacked by a bird. He awakes in a house with an old woman and a numb man. She claims to never have seen the woman. After he leaves, he sees her again and when trying to follow her is saved by a man from certain death. He learns that to help the girl, he must go to castle of Baron Van Leppe. When he arrives, Andre sees the woman looking from a window. Baron Van Leppe is old and seems reluctant to let Andre in however. He claims there's no woman in the castle, but shows Andre a painting which does indeed portray her. Andre learns that she is the baroness, who died twenty years ago. What is the baron's secret?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Helene: The crypt! It must be destroyed, and with it the dead. Andre: Don't speak of the dead anymore. You're with me now. Helene: I am possessed of the dead. Andre: You're a warm living woman. Who has told you these things? Helene: The dead.
  • Andre: That bird! It attacked me!
Movie Trivia:
  • Having finished The Raven (1963), Roger Corman shot this film in only four days using the same set and the same two lead actors.
  • Filmed in four days with five directors.
  • Roger Corman shot the castle scenes with Boris Karloff so quickly that he didn't even bother to use slates to mark the beginnings of shots. Once he just had the actors walk downstairs one after another in succession, figuring he could later cut the single shot into separate shots that he could probably use somewhere.
  • Roger Corman decided on a major change for this film. Instead of a fire, the usual finale for a Corman film of the period, he had the castle flooded instead. Corman's crew had come to look forward to "fire day".
  • Sets for both The Raven (1963) and The Haunted Palace (1963) were reused in this film. The tree that Sandra Knight rots against at the end was the one to which Vincent Price was tied and burned in "Haunted Palace."
