Trivia

Unusual for a 1960s Crown International Pictures release in that the company logo is integrated into a relatively elaborate animated title card that appears after a pre-credit sequence. Almost all C-I-P releases open with a generic company logo screen, and relatively few from this time period had a pre-credit. See more »

Goofs

When David and Marge return to the ghost town after calling the police, it is late at night and dark outside. The cuts back and forth show it as night at the ghost town but broad daylight to the police cruiser on route. See more »

Quotes

David Baker: The human mind is strange, Marge. Even doctors can't know everything about it.

Extreme creepiness on a very low budget
1 November 2005 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film, like others have, on TV late at night years ago -- I think I was maybe 13 or 14 and had been sick in bed all day, watching TV. The film made such a strong impression on me that I thought of it many times over the years and all through the following decade, I would scan the TV listings in vain hoping for a rerun. I never did see it on TV ever again, but was able, back in the early 90's, to buy up a VHS copy from somebody who'd similarly taped it off a TV station.

I gave Terrified a "10" not because I think it is on a par technically with, say, "Citizen Kane", or "Vertigo", but because it is, I feel, about as an effective film I can imagine being done on the nickels and dimes budget this film must have had. When I say "effective" I mean, this is a horror film (albeit a b&W, early 60's low budget horror film), and the film is ~scary~. Scary in a creepy, eerie vibe kind of way. I think evilskip's review of 6/15/2001 really says it best, correctly describing the sense of isolation in the film and the weird sounds (I like the use of piano too here). This film proves that "low-budget" doesn't have to mean "low quality". I'm glad I have it on tape and do play it now and again. I've played it for friends too and they agree with me that it has a genuinely creepy aura about it. Fans of William Castle films from the same era would like this.
