Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 2

Last week, I was pleased as punch to watch the return of "Elvira's Movie Macabre" on late night TV. Here in San Francisco, you can watch the show at 1am, late Saturday nights, on KOFY TV 20, cable channel 13. To find out where to watch in your neck of the woods, check the station list here.

Here's a video of the show's opening, which features a theme song produced by Jack White of the White Stripes.



Tonight's movie is the hilariously awful Roger Corman flick "The Terror," starring Boris Karloff, and Jack Nicholson, who plays a French Napoleonic soldier. For reals.

The Terror was one of the first budget-bin VHS tapes I ever bought with my own money (in 1986 or '87, I think), and as such, I've watched it way, way too many times. Even so, some details have become hazy.

Example: do Nicholson and Karloff even share any scenes? Wasn't all the Karloff stuff left over from an earlier Corman production?

Indeed yes, they do! Of course, it is very hard to understand Nicholson, on account of his very thick French accent....
