Terror is a 1978 horror movie directed by Norman J. Warren and starring John Nolan, Carolyn Courage and Glynis Barber.
The film begins with a witch being burned at the stake. She curses the local people. Then she arrives back from the dead and kills everyone. She curses their bloodline. It turns out that it is just a film. Lots of people are watching it. The movie was made in the original house where the witch is supposed to have died. James (Nolan) is the filmmaker and he is a descendant of those who killed the witch. His cousin Ann(Courage) attacks him with a sword and then runs off. A pal of James' called Carol(Barber) gets killed by someone lurking in the bushes.
From this point on, the plot is crazy. It has something to do with the witch and the house and people start dropping dead. Anne seems to be possessed by the witch and James wonders what is going on, like I did! Anyway, the movie ends with Anne killing James while she is possessed by the witch and then the house falls apart. Anne dies and the witch laughs....This movie was not great at all. The plot was wafer thin and it just seemed a bit silly. I like these old films despite the sometimes ridiculous plots and to be fair, it wasn't terrible so don't be put off. If you enjoy late 70's Brit horrors, then you will like this. It is Glynis Barber's first role too. I will give it a 4/10.
