Stuart Gordon ("Re-Animator") directed this creepy, disturbing (and loosely adapted) version of Edgar Allan Poe's story. Set during the Spanish Inquisition, the film stars Lance Henriksen as the dastardly torturer whose dungeon features all sorts of diabolical devices, including a razor-sharp pendulum. Oliver Reed, Rona De Ricci, and Jeffrey Combs also star. 97 min. Soundtrack: English.
