The Pit and the Pendulum (2009)

Seven youthful, narcissistic hopefuls enrol in a program that claims to teach each individual how to suppress pain and fear so that they can be even more narcissistic and superior in their chosen field.
It's ironic that ‘acting’ is their chosen field in real life, because there was little evidence of it being put into practice. If the film is representative of what English language exploitation cinema has devolved into then the genre is in very serious trouble. I sincerely hope it's an isolated case and that everyone had a great time making it, to offset the excruciatingly bad time I had while watching it. It’s worse than the worst Amityville movie.
