Critics reviews

Of the eight films in Corman’s Edgar Allan Poe cycle at his American International Pictures, The Masque of the Red Death may be the most technically beautiful, The Raven the most wonderfully inexplicable, but The Pit and the Pendulum is the scariest: a tale well told that luxuriates in its sinister gothic trappings and delights in constantly pulling the rug out from under the viewer.
