TERRIFIED

 Terrified Movie Review

Terrified is a black and white 1963 film about a student doing a study on terror. He soon finds himself in the hands of a masked serial killer. This movie starts off pretty well, with a scene of a young man getting buried alive in what looks like concrete, something kind of extreme for 1963.

Terrified indeed

There is another scene in the movie that I also thought was rather graphic for it’s time. This film actually does well with a creepy feeling, especially for it’s time, where the center of the story is more about terror itself than it is about the killer. Wonderfully bad dialogue full of nonsense, at times reaching close to Ed Wood levels, will either leave you smiling or shaking your head. It has a fairly weak ending and the acting is terrible, but those things almost add to the enjoyment of the film. This is not a great movie, but one I enjoyed for the most part.
