The Pit and the Pendulum (1991)

Another Stuart Gordon gem. This time with good old Lance "Scarface" Henriksen.

One of the reasons I want to post this, is that a little while ago I had to write a review of Season of the Witch. In case you haven't seen that (and I hope you haven't) let me spare you. It's bad. No, it's worse than bad: it's insulting!

Still, when I checked the IMDB page, I found tons of people who actually thought it was a good movie. While everyone is of course entitled to their opinion, I believe that anyone who thinks Season of the Witch is a decent film, doesn't have much of a reference.

They can't know that it's been done before.

With superior actors, better effects, prettier women, more elaborate sets, and a story that actually makes sense.

While it does have its flaws, The Pit and the Pendulum is still so much better, it make Season of the Witch feel like someone spit in your face.
