Watch Pit and the Pendulum (1961)

In the sixteenth century, Francis Barnard travels to Spain to clarify the strange circumstances of his sister's death after she had married the son of a cruel Spanish Inquisitor.

Pit and the Pendulum - fantastic movie. It's hard to find a movie done this well. Roger Corman has several directorial successes. There are some scenes in this movie that I will remember them until I die. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. It doesn't happen often, but after watching Pit and the Pendulum, I was moved inside. Pit and the Pendulum is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.
