The Pit

Buy Tickets


(1981) dir Lew Lehman w/Sammy Snyders, Jeannie Elias, Sonja Smits, Laura Hollingsworth [96 min; DCP]
In this Canuxploitation horror classic, deviant pre-teen weirdo Jamie obeys the commands he hears from his demonic teddy bear and lures his unsuspecting tormentors to the forest where, one by one, they are devoured by the man-eating troglodytes that dwell at the bottom of … THE PIT!

“A totally psychotic horror film that totally catches you off guard … so baffling it leaves you questioning the reality of what you’ve just seen.” – Oh, the Horror

“A truly original film, and one not easily forgotten.” – Thomas Scalzo, Not Coming to a Theater Near You

“A unique concoction of Canadian horror movie and After-School Special gone terribly, terribly wrong.” – Canuxploitation!
