Seven students answer an advertisement to participate in an experiment to explore how the sensation of pain can be eliminated. Arriving at a secluded institute, they are welcomed by mysterious scientist JB Divay. Initially, JB's fascination with hypnosis, clocks and cactus plants are dismissed by the group as mere eccentricities.

The pendulum represents all that is sacred in life. The rising and setting of the sun, the motion of the waves, the push and pull of tides, all the forces that are beyond our control. It's pure metronomy. We even have our own clocks. The pendulum deep inside, counting down each second until the day we die. Until we enter the pit of eternal damnation.
Obsessing with time like that isn't healthy. It can make you go crazy.
You don't know the half of it.

Just awful... not even good in a bad way. Fails on all counts, and why it's even _called_ "The Pit & the Pendulum" is complete mystery to me. Full of stupid dialog that doesn't even make sense, amateurish acting, lots of shots of a cardboard pendulum swinging back and forth for no reason, and laughable attempts at soft-core porn, apparently directed by a 12-year-old. The worst crime this movie commits, however... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAPPENS!!
I pity the person who had the job of editing this tripe together, and whoever wrote it ought to be embarrassed beyond words.
Anyone who rated this more than 1 star should seek immediate help, and I suspect those who rated it 1 only did so because there's no zero.
