What a load of rubbish,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pit and the Pendulum (1990) [DVD] (DVD)Do not be fooled. This is not the original Roger Corman film, starring Vincent Price. This is the cheap, spaghetti western version, made some years later, with none of the charm or horror of he original, and starring an already overweight Oliver Reed as "Torquemada". Sadly, Amazon do not choose to give you any information about who is starring in this film, or when it was made. Instead, one is told that customers who bought this film also bought "Fall of the House of Usher" (a genuine Corman film), which might lead one to think that one was not alone in buying the wrong film. You have been warned, This is a load of tat.

Why did this reviewer think it was the Corman film? And what does Oliver Reed's weight got to do with it - can't we have a fat Torquemada?

This reviewer is an utter idiot! Torquemada is not played by Ollie Reed at all but by the great Lance Henriksen of Aliens fame. This is a horrifying drama in the great style and tradition of Stuart Gordon (Re-animator). Excellent movie all round.

Pity Amazon didn't think to put in the information '1990', Director's name as 'Stuart Gordon' and actors including 'Lance Henriksen'... oop, wait a minute... they did!

You could quite easily be fooled imo. (If you have an IQ in single figures)
