AMC’s The Terror is a remarkable and suspense-packed historical drama-horror television series inspired by Dan Simmons's 2007 best-selling novel of the same name. The series, though rooted in elements of factual historic journeys, weaves an intricately gripping narrative that merges factual recount with speculative fiction and supernatural horror. Its two seasons, aired in 2018 and 2019 respectively, are distinct from one another, but both revolve around real historical events imbued with menacingly uncanny elements. Season one, entitled The Terror, is an unforgettable voyage into the frozen, unforgiving terrains of the Arctic that takes its inspiration from Captain Sir John Franklin’s lost expedition of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror in the mid-19th century. This first installment luxuriously takes time to paint an expansive tableau of the Arctic’s chilling void and the surrounding threats in order to set a stage for a tale of survival, dread, and doom. Helmed by an ensemble of impressive actors, including Jared Harris, Tobias Menzies, and Ciarán Hinds, the season brilliantly mirrors the isolation and stress experienced by the Arctic explorers with underlying human characteristics of pride, ambition, desperation, fear, and sacrifice. Beyond the physical ordeal, viewers also experience a psychological journey as the stranded crew wrestles with dwindling resources, harsh weather, and an unseen, menacing entity terrorizing them from the shadows, slowly driving them into the abyss of madness. The horror and thrill element in this first season is crafted meticulously, making the unseen much scarier than the visible. The haunting cinematic visuals, coupled with the eerily disturbing soundtrack, add to the viewer’s sense of dread and heighten the feel of impending catastrophe. Despite the horror aspects, The Terror beautifully captures the human spirit's determination, pushing forward even when beset with fear and facing adversity. On the other hand, the show also explores the potential for depravity and inhumanity when survival becomes paramount. Switching narratives and landscapes in its second season, titled The Terror: Infamy, the series moves from Arctic sea-floes to World War II era, focusing on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese-American community and a young man’s journey to comprehend and combat the malevolent entity causing them. While continuing its tradition of suspense and horror, the season deep-dives into a historical scar of American history – the internment camps, where thousands of Americans of Japanese descent were forcibly relocated during World War II. The second season has a different flavor of horror, as it integrates elements of classic Japanese ghost stories with American historical drama to striking effect. Lead by actors Derek Mio and George Takei, who is also a consultant providing first-hand experience of living in a war relocation center, the season dives into American social history, creates empathetic character arcs and straddles culture, family, and the haunting past comfortably. This season, while upholding the fear factor, also significantly infuses social critique, particularly regarding racial prejudice, cultural alienation and the violation of civil liberties. The intimate depiction of the characters' social and personal lives helps build a resonant emotional connection, making it more than just a horror-based narrative, but instead a thought-provoking melodrama that paints a vivid picture of a bleak chapter in American history. Both seasons of The Terror utilize a delicate balance of historical authenticity and supernatural conjecture, thus creating an engrossing narrative that is part fact, part horror, and completely captivating. With cinematic grandeur, human drama, taut suspense and profound social critique, The Terror boldly explores untouched avenues of the historical-horror genre and offers viewers a truly exceptional, heart-stopping experience.

The Terror is a series categorized as a new series. Spanning 2 seasons with a total of 20 episodes, the show debuted on 2018. The series has earned a moderate reviews from both critics and viewers. The IMDb score stands at 7.9.
