The Pit and the Pendulum

Posted in , , ,

Writer: Matt Taylor, Edgar Allen Poe; Producer: Marc Lougee, Susan Ma; Director: Marc Lougee

Our hero, the victim of the Spanish Inquisition, is brought before a tribunal, condemned, and sentenced to the dungeons to await his death. Explored throughout this film is the central question: is it death that is the most harrowing, or the means by which it is brought about?

From this premise, we watch our hero struggle to understand his quandary in order to find hope and faith, all the while discovering the fiendish machinations his captors employ, to ratchet up the pressure in their efforts to unhinge him.
