The Spanish Inquisition is raging across Spain: no one dares to speak a word against Grand Inquisitor Torquemada (Lance Henriksen) as he leads a bloody saga of terror, torturing and killing in the name of religion. Caught in this insane cruelty is Maria (Rona De Ricci), a voluptuous baker's wife. As she tries to prevent a child from being flogged, she is arrested and brought before the evil Torquemada. Torquemada, driven insane by his lust for the beautiful yet innocent Maria, violates and tortures her into confessing and condemns her to die. Will Maria's husband, her only hope, be able to rescue her?

The Pit and the Pendulum is regarded by many as Lance Henriksen's finest acting performance, yet matched by the beautiful, enigmatic Rona De Ricci, as Maria, in her final screen appearance.
