This week is going to be Stuart Gordon Week. When you find out Friday’s movie review, you’ll see why.  Stuart Gordon is a prolific 80s-90s director probably most famous for directing The Re-animator, but he’s also directed several other cult horror favorites.  One of which I’ll talk about more tomorrow.

Today, I’m showing you a 1991 home video ad for Gordon’s The Pit and the Pendulum (1991) starring Lance Henriksen, Jeffrey Combs and Oliver Reed. I haven’t seen it, but I think it looks AMAZING.

Pit and the Pendulum ad

This movie looks seven different kinds of awesome. It’s B movie cheese all the way. Check out the trailer.

You know what, now that I’ve watched this trailer, I think I’ve seen parts of this on cable I just didn’t know what it was called.
