He is condemned to death and finds himself in a pitch black compartment. At first the prisoner thinks that he is locked in a tomb, but he discovers that he...

    The Pit and the Pendulum (Corman, 1961)

    A horse-drawn carriage pulls up on a deserted beach. A sombre figure dismounts and gazes up towards his destination – a foreboding cliff-top castle perched high above the crashing waves. Thus the perfect Gothic scene is set for The Pit and the Pendulum, the second of Roger Corman’s celebrated Poe adaptations once again starring the ever-reliable Vincent Price (The Fall of the House of Usher, Theatre of Blood) alongside the bewitching Barbara Steele (Black Sunday). Having learned of the sudden...

Although the film is clearly set in the distant past, at the time of production (1983) the Czech authorities assumed it to be a direct attack on the regime resulting in a ban.

    The Pit and the Pendulum (Steelbook)

    Having learned of the sudden death of his sister Elizabeth (Steele), Francis Barnard (John Kerr) sets out to the castle of his brother-in-law, Nicholas Medina, to uncover the cause of her untimely demise. A distraught, grief-stricken Nicholas (Price) can offer only the vaguest explanations as to Elizabeth’s death – at first citing 'something in her blood', but later asserting that she quite literally 'died of fright'. What sort of unspeakable horrors are buried within the walls of this castle that...

    Nicholas Medina (Vincent Price) lives in a castle complete with a torture chamber built during the Spanish Inquisition. When his wife dies, he slowly goes mad, hearing her voice and becoming convinced that he has buried her alive. A twist in the tale leads to a horrific denouement in the torture chamber. Roger Corman, the king of low budget horror, directs this Edgar Allan Poe adaptation.

    The aim of the torturers, the tomb-like dungeon and symbols in Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Pit and the Pendulum

    In this term paper I am going to concentrate on how Poe achieved a certain effect with his story. First I will take a closer look at the prisoner´s constant escapes, point out that most of these escapes are unbelievable and try to find out what the aim of his torturers might be. I will speculate on possibilities, what could have happened to the prisoner if he had made other choices during his stay in the dungeon. Then I will illustrate that there are certain parallels between a tomb and the dungeon...

    This collection contains some of the nineteenth-century author's most popular and well-known stories. Master of the "grotesque and arabesque," Poe wrote many stories that reflected his worst personal nightmare - premature burial. Those who thought only Basil Rathbone could narrate Poe are in for a surprise and a treat. The no-nonsense William Roberts narrates a production mercifully free of frills. No unnecessary music or sound effects interfere with the brilliance of the writing or the purity of...

    Here are five funny, entertaining, delectable mystery stories featuring Peter "Pit Bull" Geller, who may be a bit damaged physically (in an auto accident), but has lost neither his biting wit nor his keen sense of how the upper crust manages their criminal ways. Included are: "Pit and the Pendulum," "Pit on the Road to Hell," "A Christmas Pit," "Dog Pit," and "Horse Pit" (winner of the Black Orchid Award from the Nero Wolfe Society and Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine).
