The Terror 1963 ★★★½

Set in 1806, the film tells the story of a lost French soldier named Andre Duvalier (Jack Nicholson) saved by a strange young woman named Helene (Sandra Knight). She looks like Ilsa, the baron's (Boris Karloff) wife, who died 20 years before.

Andre begins an investigation to uncover who the woman really is, and stumbles upon a hidden secret of the Baron: he had found Ilsa sleeping with another man named Eric, and in his rage the Baron killed the two of them. Or so he explained.

Almost of the Universal or Hammer cycle of horror, and while not without it's own cliched charm, the Terror can be a slow watch. Enjoyable for lovers of classics however, and well performed.
