The two sides of Roger Corman are represented with The Terror (1963) and The Little Shop of Horrors (1960).
Corman's Gothic, spooky side is on display in The Terror, an atmospheric horror tale of a French soldier whose encounter with a ghostly woman leads him to a mysterious castle full of dark secrets. The pairing of a youthful Jack Nicholson as the soldier and veteran Boris Karloff as the castle's owner make The Terror a memorable example of Corman's mid-sixties Goth period. Though Corman is credited as director, several others took a turn behind the camera, including Nicholson himself, Monte Hellman, and Francis Ford Coppola.
Meanwhile, Corman's more whimsical side is on display in The Little Shop of Horrors. This legendary cult film features a bumbling florist's assistant who creates a giant plant that happens to crave human blood. The usual Corman stock company is on hand, including Jonathan Haze and Dick Miller, plus a cameo by Nicholson as a dental patient with a high threshold for pain.

The Little Shop of Horrors is fun, but it's probably best with regard to characters and an unusual premise... Recommended.
THE TERROR...it's immense fun in its own extremely goofy way, and it's a delight to see Nicholson at this early stage of his career playing a straight romantic lead... Recommended.
