THE TERROR (the haunting) (1963 U.S.) D/W/P: ROGER CORMAN D/W: JACK HILL D: FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA/MONTE HELLMAN W: LEO GORDON
Nicholson plays a soldier of Napolean's army who's become lost from his unit. He ends up at Boris Karloff's castle on the coast, where the spirit of a dead young woman seems to walk. Nothing special, but an effective, atmospheric quickie from Corman that was (initially) shot quickly in 4 days before THE RAVEN sets were torn down. But Corman handed it over to Associate Producer Coppola to finish, and things slowed right down. Hellman was called in to finish up. Jack Hill shot a scene or two. There is no evidence to support the rumors that Nicholson or Dennis Jakob (who doubled for Karloff) shot anything. Daniel Haller was responsible for the art direction. With Dick Miller and Jonathan Haze. THE HAUNTED PALACE also used some of the same sets.
