AHMP: The Terror
Subject: The Terror. 1963, Roger Corman.
This movie represents the ultra-rare pairing of two horror greats: Boris Karloff near the end of his reign and Jack Nicholson, just beginning his own foray into horror stardom. Here, the berserk Baron Victor Frederick Von Leppe may or may not turn out to be who he claims. And who he claims to be doesn't sit right with Lt. Andre Duvalier (Nicholson) as the two do battle for the slimy affections of wet, busty she-ghost Helene. Also starring Dick Miller as someone not named Walter Paisley. TRAILER.
seen this before.
Conclusion: fun, well-composed, just overall good! Extra-credit for centering the giant cobweb over Karloff's eye. A-.
