Retro Poster: "The Pit" (1981)

If you like weird 80's horror movies involving creepy kids, then "The Pit" will be right up your alley. Jamie is an awkward 12 year old boy who is neglected by his parents and bullied by his peers. He finds solace in talking to his teddy bear and spending time alone or spying on his babysitter. When he finds a pit of troll-like creatures in a hole in the woods, he uses their hunger to take revenge on the people who have mistreated him. I'm not sure if this movie was made with the intention of being a silly dark comedy, but that's exactly what this is. And it's quite enjoyable in that sense. Check it out with this weekend. Invite your friends, make sure you have a case of beer on hand and be sure to enjoy the goofy twist ending.



I like horror movies. That is all.
