Horror versus terror?

What's the difference between horror and terror?

I've come to understand that horror is more an emotional reaction to witnessing something horrific where as terror is more psychological and an emotion induced by uncertainty and the unknown. I am researching this and this is what I seem to find over and over again.

Could someone elaborate on the differences between horror and terror? Or perhaps give your own personal input on the difference between the two?
