A solitary and strange preteen boy wreaks revenge on his harassers when he makes a disturbing discovery in the depth of a forest.

IMDb

 

The Pit is Bill’s pick and he describes it as a fascinating mess of a movie that epitomizes that certain something indicative of low-budget, Canadian horror movies of the time. Crystal loves The Pit because it is so cringy and gross, adding that the hypersexual kid is disgusting yet compelling. The Pit would’ve been loved by 15-year-old Chad but it is a tough watch for him now, especially with the annoying kid as the main character. Jeff agrees that The Pit is a bit of a mess and doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be, citing how the music often doesn’t fit the scene.

If you’re a fan of low-budget 80s trash, check out The Pit. As of this writing, The Pit is available for streaming on Shudder and on physical media as a Blu-ray disc from KL Studio Classics.

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Crystal, will be Basket Case  (1982).  You won’t want to miss that one!
