"I've done life; now I'm doing death." … and you’re still around to talk about it? Wow! Join your faithful Grue Crew - Bill Mulligan, Chad Hunt, Crystal Cleveland, and Jeff Mohr along with a special guest -  as they investigate the zombies-in-a-mental-hospital world of The Dead Pit (1989) with the film’s director of special effects Ed Martinez.

Decades of Horror 1980s
Episode 159 – The Dead Pit (1989)

A renegade doctor is shot dead and entombed with his fiendish experiments in the basement of an abandoned wing of a mental hospital. Twenty years later, a mysterious woman is admitted with amnesia, and her arrival is marked by an earthquake - which cracks the seal to the Dead Pit, freeing the evil doctor to continue his work.

IMDb

 

Your Decades of Horror 1980s Grue-Crew is very fortunate to be joined this episode by special effects artist Ed Martinez, the director of special effects for The Dead Pit. Ed and the Grue-Crew talk everything from special effects to Jeremy Slate to director Brett Leonard to stories from the set. The Dead Pit features beau coup special effects including, but not limited to, a dentist drill to an eye, an exploding water tower, needles to the brain, melting zombies, and more zombies than you can count.

Your 80s Grue-Crew calls The Dead Pit an underrated film and definitely recommends it. As of this writing, The Dead Pit is available to stream on Amazon Prime with a Blu-ray scheduled for release August 25, 2020, from Dark Force Entertainment/Code Red.

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The film for their next episode is Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988), chosen by Crystal.
