United Kingdom The Pit and the Pendulum (Vincent Price) Steelbook from Arrow

http://www.arrowfilms.co.uk/shop/ind...product_id=342



THE GREATEST TERROR TALE EVER TOLD!

A horse-drawn carriage pulls up on a deserted beach. A sombre figure dismounts and gazes up towards his destination – a foreboding cliff-top castle perched high above the crashing waves. Thus the perfect Gothic scene is set for Pit and the Pendulum, the second of Roger Corman’s celebrated Poe adaptations once again starring the ever-reliable Vincent Price (The Fall of the House of Usher, Theatre of Blood) alongside the bewitching Barbara Steele (Black Sunday).

Having learned of the sudden death of his sister Elizabeth (Steele), Francis Barnard (John Kerr) sets out to the castle of his brother-in-law, Nicholas Medina, to uncover the cause of her untimely demise. A distraught, grief-stricken Nicholas (Price) can offer only the vaguest explanations as to Elizabeth’s death – at first citing “something in her blood”, but later asserting that she quite literally “died of fright”. What sort of unspeakable horrors are buried within the walls of this castle that could cause one’s heart to stop so? With Francis determined to get to the bottom of this mystery, the terrible truth will not stay buried for long.

Right from its brooding kaleidoscopic opening titles, Pit and Pendulum draws you into its world of cobwebs, secret passageways and dusty suits of armour. All the necessary elements are present and correct and, along with one of Vincent Price’s most tortured performances, make Pit and the Pendulum every inch the Gothic melodrama.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Limited Edition SteelBook packaging
High Definition digital transfer
Newly created exclusive content
Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film, archive content and more!
More to be announced closer to the release date

Awesome. Knowing about these VP steels was the main thing that held me back from buying the Vincent Price Collection. I still might down the road, but I'm definitely getting each and every e one of these beautiful steels too.

Wow. As much as I hate horizontal Steelbooks that look amazing. Normally I would pass since it's region locked but as a big fan of EAP I think I'll order it.

Got mine a few days back. Very nice steel indeed and a much better film than Usher in my opinion too. Pit has always been one of my favourite Vincent Price films.

A quick look at the disc showed very good PQ given the age and budget of the film - this one didnt look bad on DVD but it looks even better now. I did a quick comparison with the DVD and as you'd expect, the blu-ray is much better. Certainly better than the Theatre of Blood PQ for instance.

What were your particular issues with the transfer? It looked excellent to my eyes.

No issues at all. I kind of knew Pit would look better than Theatre. Theatre looks about as good as it can do but Pit just looks better despite being a good 10 years older. It was the same with the DVDs.

Both look as good now as they possibly will ever do I think.

Just received mine today, Arrow again does another amazing job. I was on the fence about picking this up since I have the Scream VP box set, but the new documentary and Tim Lucas commentary sold it for me. The steelbook is beautiful as well.
