I'm familiar with Nick Millard. From Criminally Insane to his ridiculous Death Nurse films. Both Death Nurse films and the sequel to Criminally Insane are shot on video. But for The Terrorists, the film is shot on what looks like grainy 16mm stock, which is the only improvement from his previous films. But with this video release, every shot is improperly framed. The lower half of the screen seems to be cropped out. It's quite odd. Did the video distributors mess with the film or is Milliard just horrible with a film camera? I don't know. Regardless, the film is shot just as bad as his previous films. The pacing of the editing is all wrong. The only action in the film are the gun fights, which are just a back and forth of gun shots that seems to go on and on without anyone moving or dodging bullets. It seems the budget for this film was a lot higher than those of his previous films (since it was shot on film and in Germany). At least his horror flicks had some cheese appeal, this was just boring. It's also worth mentioning that I notice the doctor from Death Nurse in this film.
