Looking Back: The Pit

The Pit(1981)

Directed by Lew Lehman

Starring Sam Snyders, Jeannie Elias, Sonja Smits, and Richard Aiden

The Pit is about a young boy named Jaime Benjamin who lures people into a creature pit, due to the suggestion of his demonic plush toy, Teddy.

This movie is an intriguing creature feature. The acting is pretty good, and I felt that Sam Snyders who played Jaime, gave a good performance. You got the sense of a kid going through the trials of puberty, and experiencing some inner psychological turmoil.

The Pit overall is entertaining, and if you’re looking for something different, this comes recommended. I would suggest you watch this on a streaming service before you decide to add it to your collection. My Score: 7.5/10
