"DIR: Jan Svankmajer SUMMARY: An adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's 'The Pit and the Pendulum' and Auguste Villiers de l'Isle-Adam's 'A Torture by Hope'. WHY IT'S HERE: Jan Svankmajer's 'The Pit, the Pendulum and Hope' is one of the best Poe adaptations ever put on film, for the simple reason that it successfully replicates the terror of the original story by placing the viewer squarely in the place of the torture victim. Filming from a point of view shot throughout, Svankmajer forces us to empath"

"Dark tale about torture and escaping among other things, based on Edgar Allan Poe's work, of which I don't know nothing about. The look of the film is dark like it should be and filled with disturbing small sounds, very much in the director's usual manner, but this time the constant use of close-ups actually made the film just more hard to watch and thus, lot of the "could have been"-effective moments became not-so effective, even though in lot of ways I could well imagine liking this all more t"

"PC Ankeaa settiä kidutuskammioista, helvetistä ja muusta piristävästä. Synkän pimeää unimaailmaa, joka on visuaalisesti kuin keskiaikaisista puupiirroksista. Uusintakatselu olisi paikallaan."

"4.7. Svankmajerin toinen Poe-filmatisointi itselleni Usherin talon häviötä enemmän puhuttelevasta novellista, jonka kiehtova kuvaus kuolemanpelosta on tavoitettu erittäin tyylikkäästi. Kuolemaantuomitun kamppailua seuraa erittäin jännittyneenä etenkin hahmon näkökulmasta toteutetun kuvauksen ja tämän stressaantuneen hengityksen ansiosta. Novellin lukeminen etukäteen antaa muuten suuresti lisäarvoa katsomiskokemukselle."
