Terror is a 1978 British horror film starring John Nolan, Carolyn Courage, James Aubrey, Sarah Keller and Tricia Walsh and directed by Norman J. Warren.[1]


Royal ancestors are cursed by a witch burned at the stake during the Medieval era, and murders take place following the showing of a film based on the story.



The location of the Garricks ancestral home was, in reality, the home of the Baron and Baroness De Veuce, in Purbright, Surrey. The film studio where James Aubrey's character works was the actual interior of Acorn Studios in Barnes.


The music was composed and performed by Ivor Slaney, including the electric guitar, used during the dance sequence in the nightclub.

For the sequences where the car is hovering in the air, the car was lifted up by a crane. The cable can be scene in certain shots.

The witch is played by 'L.E. Mack'. This is an in-joke on the elemac track used for moving cameras during shooting. An elemac track is used during the finale to 'float' the actress playing the witch across the room. It is coveredin the scene by the 'dry-ice'.


Terror was a UK box office success.
