Pit and the Pendulum (El péndulo de la muerte)

de Roger Corman

Trailer

Synopsis

Second in the series of eight movies where Roger Corman found his way into gothic horror hand in hand with Edgar Allan Poe, The Pit and the Pendulum once again had a screenplay by Richard Matheson, who very skillfully expanded the original story, and with Vincent Price in the role of a Spanish nobleman tormented by family memories and the possibility of having prematurely buried his wife (Barbara Steele in her North American debut). Its excellent sets, its horrifying aura and an anthological final twist were just another example of the enormous talent that has crowned Roger Corman as the indisputable ‘B movie king’.
