The Terror (1963)

A typical cheesy Roger Corman horror flick. Andre Duvalier (Jack Nicholson) is a lieutenant in Napoleon's army. He is separated from the rest of his unit and becomes lost. As he is riding along the beach he sees a beautiful young woman, Helene (Sandra Knight). He follows her and she disappears into the ocean. He passes out and when he comes to he is in the home of an old woman, Katrina (Dorothy Neumann). She claims to know nothing about he woman but the man who works for her tells Andre otherwise. He tells Andre that he must go toe the home of Baron Victor Von Leppe (Boris Karlof) to find her. When he arrives at the Baron's home he sees a painting on the wall of Helene. However, he soon learns that this is Ilsa, the Baron's wife. She has also been dead for twenty years. Now Andre must find out what is going on before it is to late.

This wasn't the worst movie I have ever seen but I have seen better. The acting was pretty bad, even by Nicholson. It is hard to believe that he and Knight were married at the time because they had no chemistry on screen. If you like horror movies it is worth watching just for the cheese factor.
