The film was infamously made using left-overs from ''[[Film/TheRaven1963 The Raven]]'' (including both the cast and sets), which Corman finished two days earlier than expected. Having Boris Karloff on hand, Corman decided to write and film his scenes first, and then figure out everything else afterwards as there wasn't even a script. Also notable is that Corman wasn't the only director, as the movie had at least four other people directing scenes, two of them being Creator/FrancisFordCoppola and Creator/JackNicholson. The result is, as Creator/JamesRolfe put it, "a mishmash of two things: 1, people walking around in dark rooms, and 2, people explaining new plot twists every other scene as if ten different [[Creator/MNightShyamalan M. Night Shyamalans]] were involved".

Added DiffLines:

After filming of this movie was complete, Corman realized he still had two more days of filming with Karloff on the contract. He thus appointed a young Peter Bogdanovich to create a movie using stock footage from ''The Terror'', starring Karloff. The result was ''Film/{{Targets}}''.

'''''The Terror'''''
is a 1963 horror film directed by Creator/RogerCorman. It stars Creator/RogerCorman, starring Creator/BorisKarloff in one of his last film roles and Creator/JackNicholson.

Creator/JackNicholson in one of his first.

In 1806, a lost french soldier from the French army finds himself in named Andre Duvalier is saved by a strange castle, woman named Helene. Seeking refuge in a castle owned by a baron, Duvalier finds the woman again, who the baron thinks is the ghost of his long-dead wife. However, Duvalier is instead convinced that the woman has been hypnotized by a witch, tormenting the baron to the brink of madness.

The film was infamously made using left-overs from ''[[Film/TheRaven1963 The Raven]]'' (including both the cast
and investigates sets), which Corman finished two days earlier than expected. Having Boris Karloff on hand, Corman decided to write and film his scenes first, and then figure out everything else afterwards as there wasn't even a script. Also notable is that Corman wasn't the strange only director, as the movie had at least four other people directing scenes, two of them being Creator/FrancisFordCoppola and Creator/JackNicholson. The result is, as Creator/JamesRolfe put it, "a mishmash of two things: 1, people walking around it.
in dark rooms, and 2, people explaining new plot twists every other scene as if ten different [[Creator/MNightShyamalan M. Night Shyamalans]] were involved".

The movie is in the public domain, which means one can very easily find it either online or as part of a box set with other such movies. While it's not technically part of Corman's "[[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe Poe]] Cycle", it often gets lumped in with the others due to using the same cast and sets as ''The Raven'', as well as generally feeling like something derived from Poe's works.

James Rolfe [[http://cinemassacre.com/2010/10/09/the-terror/ featured]] the movie as part of Monster Madness 2010: Camp Cult, and eventually did [[http://cinemassacre.com/2012/12/02/the-terror-1963-commentary/ a feature-length commentary]] on it with Mike Mattei.
