Description du produit
In the quest to save souls, the Spanish Inquisition will stop at nothing and knows no boundaries for its evil. Under the direction of Torquemada (LANCE HENRIKSEN - Aliens, Terminator ) the Grand Inquisitor of Spain, a young baker s wife named Maria (RONA DE RICCI) is falsely accused of witchcraft and dragged before the Inquisition and the Cardinal (OLIVER REED Gladiator , Three Musketeers ). Torquemada is enchanted by Maria s beauty and subjects her and her husband Antonio (JONATHAN FULLER Castle Freak ) to heinous tortures hoping to prove that his own desires for her are a result of her magic, and that she has bewitched him . With the help of Esmerelda, Maria s cellmate and confessed witch, Maria must find the power to save her husband Antonio from Torquemada s ultimate machine of torture: the inevitable, razor sharp PENDULUM poised over the inescapable PIT of hell. SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: MAKING OF FEATURETTE, BLOOPER REEL, THEATRICAL TRAILER, FULL MOON TRAILER REEL.

I bought this movie because Lance Henriksen has a starring role in it. I am a huge fan of his and there are definitely scenes in this flick where Henriksen shines. Unfortunately, the rest of the cast, including the great Oliver Reed, appearing in a cameo, don't have much of a script with which to work. Indeed some of the lines are so anachronistic, that they are laughable. Set during the Spanish Inquisition, there is a scene where the male lead, a baker, is strapped to a chair and a fire is lit beneath him. He laughs hysterically and says "If you want to toast my buns, you'll have do a lot better than that!" And so on and so forth.
Picture quality averages under 24Mbps; not great, but a definite step up from SD. There are NO subtitle options. That's cheap. Amazon incorrectly lists this film as having an aspect ratio of 1.33:1 FALSE. It's 1.66:1, widescreen. That's good.
Bottom line: The movie is kinda fun; the female lead is smokin' hot and you get some full-frontal nudity. The torture scenes are pretty gruesome. All in all not enough however to give this film a reservation free recommendation. Still, for fans of Henriksen, it's a pretty safe purchase.
The problem is Echo Bridge, formerly Platinum Disc; they care more about quantity than quality in their new strategy. The encodes they do are low bit-rate under a Constant Quality setting instead of Variable and tests show it on all their disks. They also use only single layered disks and try their best to pack other movies etc. all on that single layer. We are left with garbage.
Since this is such a nice movie, it's unfortunate how it was butchered; for all of us. It's harsh, but the movie loving public would be better off if this company simply went away.
I saw this film several times upon it's release in 1991, and loved it. I always remembered it and wanted to buy a copy on video, but it was out of print for many years. It did appear on DVD a few years ago but it was only available as part of the Stuart Gordon box set and could not be found as an individual release. Now, finally, somebody has put it out on DVD. It's widescreen and the picture quality isn't bad. I wish they'd have used the original cover art, though. It was a cool poster. I can't figure out why a lot of companies don't use the original movie artwork on the dvd release. But that's a small complaint. The film itself is just as good as I remember. It has stood the test of time and doesn't feel dated at all. In fact I think I appreciate it more now than back in the day.
The movie takes place in Spain during the Inquisition and tells the story of the Grand Inquisitor, Torquemada, superbly portrayed by Lance Henriksen in one of his most intense performances. He and his cohorts spend their days torturing heretics, blasphemers, and witches; to death most of the time. Until he comes into possession of a beautiful young baker's wife, who happens to be pious, pure, a true christian (as opposed to the monsters of the Inquisition). He falls in love with her, but cannot deal with these feelings. Chaos and upheaval ensue. She is an accused witch and he is torn between saving her and letting the torturers have her.
Stuart Gordon manages to put every penny of his small budget on the screen. It looks great, with castle sets, dungeons, decent costumes, etc. The torture scenes are well done and nasty enough. Good FX work.
Mainly the two things that stand out for me are the really strong script and the intense, creepy, almost Nosferatu-like performance of Lance Henriksen. If you're a fan of Gordon films, E. A. Poe, Jeffrey Combs, or Henriksen, I say don't pass this one up. Recommended.
