The Sheriff’s Going To Kill Us, or Something: A Review of Satan’s Cheerleaders

David Christenson

Add support by Sydney Chaplin, son of Charlie and a competent comic actor in his own right, and Jack Kruschen, one of those comfortingly familiar middle-aged character players, and you’ve got a winner, right?

The second of these films, The Pit and the Pendulum (1961), is easily an equal of the classic The House Of Usher, and MGM recently released a very nice DVD package of the movie under its “Midnite Movies“ line.
