So a basic script was thrown together, dialogue was shot with Karloff and Nicholson and a few other actors. It all sat in the can for six months when Corman shot some exteriors to cover what was needed, and it was all assembled out of what was onhand. The six month wait made it the longest Corman shoot ever. Really a fun little film showing what Corman could come up with out of nothing.
Wow, see I didn't know that. I can honestly say I will watch Terror again-give it a second chance. I've only recently begun looking into everything involved with making a movie, and with what you've discribed, I think I could get alot more out of the film, thanks.

Little Shop of Horrors 1960
Jack Nicholson cameo was sweet, otherwise the film was so so.
5/10

The Last Man on Earth 1960
Vincent Price could take Will S. in a fight any day. A true classic-could've used a better ending-I can see why it's been remade so many times.
8/10

House on Haunted Hill 1959
V.P. is the man! I only wish it were longer.
9/10

Yes, I still prefer the Price version to both other adaptions I've seen. Even the Heston one. A criminally overlooked film.

For the record, the film was not remade; all three of the I Am Legend films that I know of are based upon the same novel by Richard Matheson.

Anyway, the last classic horror film I watched was The Black Cat for about the gazillionth time. Another picture that deserves much more appraise than it currently receives, and remains among my favorite films.
