Rating: 4/5 -- The second in the popular series of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations made by the enterprising mini-studio American International Pictures, this Roger Corman picture is carpeted wall-to-wall with luxuriant gothic excess. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Really underrated horror film from Stuart Gordon.

Dec 29, 2002
Rating: 1/5 -- Boring adaptation with no scares, no mood and no sex appeal (considering it's a form of sexual persecution)

Description by

Torquemada is enchanted by Maria's beauty and subjects her and her husband Antonio to heinous tortures hoping to prove that his own desires for her are a result of her magic, and that she has "bewitched him". With the help of Esmerelda, Maria's cellmate and confessed witch, Maria must find the power to save her husband from Torquemada's ultimate machine of torture: the inevitable, razor sharp PENDULUM poised over the inescapable PIT of hell.
