B. J. Harrison Reads The Pit and the Pendulum - äänikirja
A prisoner arrives at a trial before the Spanish Inquisition and is condemned to death. Upon his conviction, he faints and finds himself in a horrendous cell to fight off death. Still, this prisoner is not giving up that easily and describes his horrendous circumstances to the last detail. "The Pit and the Pendulum" by Edgar Allan Poe is nothing short of grim until the very end. The short story from the 19th century has inspired countless film and television adaptations, including Guillermo del Toro's narrated version in the animated anthology Extraordinary Tales (2015).
