13HORROR.COM reviews P&P

from Andrew Hannon <editor@13horror.com>
Hi Danny,  

Thanks again for submitting The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre to the 13Horror.com Film Contest.   

It’s an extremely accomplished short. You have some very nicely worked camera movements (most notably at the desk and during the inquisition) and – for all of the claustrophobic horror contained within it – it is very easy on the eye. The visuals of the pit were particularly impressive.  

I understand you also composed the music. It was perfect – very haunting and surprisingly catchy! It felt like a character in its own right.  

You have done a superb job in capturing a nightmarish quality. With your spin on it, you have retained the element of hope that underpins the original short story with the inclusion of a (potential) savior in the form of a Lasalle.    

We will officially announce the winners on the 13Horror.com website on November 15, 2022.

Thanks again for submitting your film and good luck!  

Best regards, Andrew
