Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 12

The chilling torture of portrait sitting
The Pit and the Pendulum was the second Edgar Allen Poe film directed by Roger Corman, in a series of horror movie adaptations that would go on to include six titles.

This one stars Vincent Price as a 16th century nobleman who turns into his Spanish Inquisitor father after his wife (Barbara Steele) is buried alive. And when you're a Spanish Inquisitor, you, of course have to built a torture chamber! Maybe in a pit? And with a.....pendulum?!

Watch it late tonight at 1:20AM on MGMHD.
