And the award for the weirdest horror movie from the 80’s that I hadn’t seen up until last week goes to………..The Pit! To be honest, I remember seeing this on VHS back in my renting days, and the cover (creepy kid holding a teddy bear) always intrigued me. But…..I never rented it. And thus I forgot about it. But thanks to Shudder, I was able to finally sit down with it and in doing so, I saw the best death scene involving a blind lady in a wheelchair ever!
Granted, it’s not a gory death scene. It’s just…..odd. Which is why I dug it. And the music sounds like something from a Bugs Bunny cartoon (with music sting and all). Watch the scene below – and if you like movies about a pervy/creepy underage kid who talks to a teddy bear and has secrets about a hidden pit of troglodytes……then The Pit might be in your wheelhouse. So get your stream on at Shudder now!
