THE TERROR (Film Detective Blu-ray)

This is another Film Detective Blu-ray. We are dealing with a company that is simply putting out classic Horror Blu-ray that have HD scans, but spend little or no time to actually preserve or restore. Granted The Terror has seen more VHS and DVD releases than the Bible. I was actually impressed with the color in the Film Detectives releases, but it still looked washed out. It's better than I've seen it look before, but in all honesty, every time I've seen The Terror it's looked damn bad, sourcing from tape or produced by a distro company that clearly was bargain basement. 

No extras on this release, the traditional artwork is present but is combined with the distro company's branding which his distracting and not great for collectors. 

There's an older Blu-ray available of this to boot, but I've truly only seen the very worst versions of this movie.

Order The Terror from The Film Detective.
From The Film Detective:

The ghostly apparition of a young woman is witnessed by an 18th Century French Lieutenant in Napoleon's army. After two failed attempts to keep up with her, Lt. Andre Duvalier (Nicholson) heads to the castle of Baron Von Leppe (Karloff), where he notices a painting of the Baron's late wife Ilsa, who looks identical to the ghostly woman. Duvalier is now determined to unravel the castle's mystery, and the Baron's hidden secrets. Though officially credited to Roger Corman, The Terror had a total of five collaborative directors, including Nicholson himself, and Francis Ford Coppola.
