For some, the Terror had to occur, either to sweep away the remnants of the Old Regime or, from a more critical perspective, because the revolutionaries had inadvertently introduced authoritarianism with their seeming democratic principles.
But regardless of which position one occupies, one must look to the frantic policies of the period: its ongoing foreign and civil war, multilayered internal political strife, constitutional paralysis, economic hardships, religious conflict, and the innovative nature of revolutionary language.
For those who see the Terror as unconnected to 1789, these events are the very things that cause the problems.

While Robespierre was not the inventor of the "Reign of Terror" or the revolutionary tribunal, his personal eloquence and popularity attracted a fanatical following among the Jacobins.
Under Robespierre and the Jacobins, the number of executions rose every month (21 in September of 1793, 59 in October, 61 in November, 68 in December, 61 in January of 1794, 77 in February, and 121 in March); and the Paris prisons held 8,000 prospective victims.
Opponents to the Terror held that the victims were no longer the clergy and the aristocrats, but rather ordinary citizens accused of hoarding, profiteering, or one of the various offenses included under the Law of Suspects.

 Modern History Sourcebook: Robespierre: Terror and Virture, 1794
But, to found and consolidate democracy, to achieve the peaceable reign of the constitutional laws, we must end the war of liberty against tyranny and pass safely across the storms of the revolution: such is the aim of the revolutionary system that you have enacted.
Your conduct, then, ought also to be regulated by the stormy circumstances in which the republic is placed; and the plan of your administration must result from the spirit of the revolutionary government combined with the general principles of democracy.
Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, severe, inflexible; it is therefore an emanation of virtue; it is not so much a special principle as it is a consequence of the general principle of democracy applied to our country's most urgent needs.

Murder, rape, mutilation, and torture were bread and butter to the Grand Guignol, which quickly filled the gap that had been left in Parisian entertainment by the discontinuance of public executions.
In the twenty-five years he stayed with the company, de Lorde wrote over one hundred plays of fear and horror and was almost single-handedly responsible for the Grand Guignol's ascension from a local sensation to a place of international pilgrimage.

 The Radical Revolution
The Terror, however, was a relatively brief episode in a process that was begun in 1789 and really didn't conclude until Napolean's coup d'état in 1799.
Despite the sheer volume of executions, almost all of which were done without due process, the dictatorship of the Terror were facing a hopeless situation and, to their credit, they turned the tide.
It is almost certain that the Revolution would not have survived but for the dictators during the Reign of Terror who managed, through reorganizing the army and ruthlessly pursuing internal dissidents, to secure the French Republic (for its eventual downfall, of course, at the hands of Napolean).
