The Pit

Told with out recourse to dialogue (the only human voices are those of ominously chanting monks and the chief inquisitor pronouncing "morte!"), the film recounts the now familiar tale of a prisoner's torments in a darkened room with the titular devices of torture. He escapes the pendulum that descends inexorably towards him only find that the walls of the dreary cell in which he has been cast are glowing red hot, moving and pushing him closer to an apparently bottomless pit in the centre of the room.
