The Pit and the Pendulum (1991)



Director: Stuart Gordon

“In this place, death is mercy.”
I haven’t read the Edgar Allan Poe Story on wich this is based on, but i’m pretty sure they don’t have that much in common.
This could have been really good, but the supernatural elements and the sometimes cheesy acting ruined it.
It’s much more trashy than it needs to be, even though there are some good scenes there.
Lance Henriksen is absolutely amazing as the insane inquisitor and he alone is worth to watch this film, no matter how many flaws there are.
