“Dead Pit” was legitimately scary as fuck. It was the first (and only) movie to give me real nightmares. Of course watching a horror film when you are only 4 years old is probably a great way to guarantee that. It came out in 1989 and it can be argued (and is by me) that the 90’s marked the end of truly terrifying horror movies. Very few films made after 1990 elicit actual fear. The horror movie genre is definitely a lost art nowadays. But at least there will always exist classics such as “Dead Pit” to make us soil ourselves. Now if you’ll excuse me, I must visit the facilities.
