Description Seven students answer an advertisement to participate in an experiment to explore how the sensation of pain can be eliminated. Arriving at a secluded institute, they are welcomed by mysterious scientist JB Divay. Initially, JB's fascination with hypnosis, clocks and cactus plants are dismissed by the group as mere eccentricities. But as the students begin to disappear one by one, they begin to question JB's true intentions. In a final showdown, plucky Jason confronts JB over her deranged practices only to discover boyfriend Kyle strapped to a table beneath JB's final experiment, inches away from the razor's edge...

    @lghanima wasn't there two movies with the same title, (one from 1961, orginally from Egar Allen poe's short horror story of "The Pit and the Pendulum", and also one in 1991 from different from that short story)

    It's a cosmic injustice that even straight to video flicks like these make more money, than poor Poe ever saw in his entire lifetime.
