The Pit and the Pendulum screening at Vincentennial
The Pit and the Pendulum
Roger Corman, 1961, 80 min.
Other than the eponymous torture device, there's precious little of Edgar Allan Poe's short story on screen, but thanks to a clever screenplay by Richard Matheson, a tortured performance by Vincent Price, sure-handed direction by Roger Corman, and the casting of British scream queen Barbara Steele, "The Pit and the Pendulum" remains a favorite among horror buffs. Price plays guilt-stricken Spanish aristocrat Don Medina, who's unable to get over the death of his young wife and fears that she may have been buried alive. The story climaxes in a cobwebbed torture chamber in the pit of his castle. Shot in 1961 for just $200,000, "The Pit and the Pendulum" is visually dazzling, with spooky color camerawork by Floyd Crosby and imposing art design by Daniel Haller.
