Frequently Bought Together
Adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's classic horror tale, set during the time of the Spanish Inquisition. When the beautiful Maria (Rona de Ricci) cries out in horror at the public torture of a child carried out by the inquisitor Torquemada (Lance Henriksen), she is immediately arrested herself and held under suspicion of witchcraft. Her husband Antonio (Jonathan Fuller) then races to save her, as the evil Torquemada begins preparing a special, personal punishment for his latest victim.

And it owes very little to Poe at all, is a full torture chamber ahead of the old Vincent Price version, and as I care little about that first movie, I've no problem recommending this far above it. That's not to say it's an easy watch, it's nasty, black-humoured, descends into high camp in moments of random abandon, sick-inducing for the middling of stomach and should induce much tightening of limbs and grimaces of observational pain-but all that means is Stuart is back to doing the day job and long may its blood and guts run.Read more ›
Rona De Ricci plays Maria the lead female who Henriksen is fascinated with- we see her full frontal on a number of occasions. This was her last film, where did she go? Is she still alive? Any info would be greatly apprecaited. She's very good in the film, but her husband who is also captured isn't. How many lives can one man get? He makes fools of the guards and of the viewer- there's only so many tricks....
But onto the positives because there are positives. The script especially Henriksens lines are great- the torture violence is well executed, pardon the pun. And there is a nightmarish atmosphere about it all. But it's a shame that Gordon couldn't recapture some of the original movie's atmosphere. All he has done has made a pumped up gore version- which is all good and well, I just wish he had left the jokes aside and made this more bleak. Still Henrisksen tries his best to recitfy that. Watch out for a tiny cameo from Oliver Reed- it's great but biink and you may miss it.Read more ›
It was spoiled for me however by the terrible script which grated on me as being both weirdly anachronistic and filled with puerile stabs at humour.
Could not the actors have tried to aspire to a common accent?.
Here we have a spectacular array on offer. For example the drama obviously plays out in Spain but the castle guard sounds like he's be more at home driving a cab in the Bronx.
To me this is just lazy,as a lot of effort went into period reconstruction and set design.
Additionally, this does not have much to do with Poe if that is what you're expecting, other than the titular pendulum.

This probably the most greusome film I have ever seen! I would not recomend it at all, the emphasis seems to be on extreme gore so if that's your 'want', okay. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Terry S.
The original Vincent Price film is 10 times better. Here the uniforms are Okay but everything far too clean, no popping out to the cleaners then. Read morePublished 17 months ago by hard to please
