The victims suffer death by having their heads removed in various fashions, getting their limbs caught in animal traps, knife wounds, and other methods of medieval torture. Written by
I didn't have very high hopes going into this one, since I'd already seen Norman J. Warren's earlier tragedy Satan's Slave, but surprisingly enough; Terror actually isn't bad, and that's in spite of it's completely uninspiring title. Terror plays out like your classic slasher flick, but it's good in that the director doesn't hold back on the gore and the result, while very cheesy, is an enjoyable little horror flick. The excuse for all the terror revolves around an ancient curse delivered by a witch a couple of hundred years ago. A young girl is hypnotised and later possessed by the witch's spirit, and from there it seems as though the witch's curse is true. The next seventy minutes is basically a hodgepodge of gruesome murder scenes - but this isn't a problem as the murder scenes themselves are entertaining in a gory, over the top sort of way and this greatly benefits the film. When there aren't murders going on, it has to be said that Terror isn't the most interesting movies of all time. It's true that director Norman J. Warren is a hack really; but this is entertaining stuff, and good enough for a single viewing.
