Still image from the film The Terror
Lieutenant Duvalier (Jack Nicholson, in one of his first starring roles) is rescued from the Napoleonic Wars by a mysterious woman (Sandra Knight), who he soon traces back to the gothic castle of Baron von Leppe (Boris Karloff). Duvalier discovers a twisted plot involving witches, ghosts, and doppelgangers. Made in a piecemeal fashion over nine months, The Terror began as Corman’s attempt to shoot an additional film in four days using a contractually bound Karloff and standing sets from The Raven, but was later completed by a handful of his soon-to-be-famous assistant directors.
