Countdown to Halloween, Unsung Heroes of Horror Day 20: Sammy Snyders in The Pit (1981)

I think both Sammy Snyders and the movie itself, The Pit, are unsung and underrated heroes of horror. If you’ve never seen The Pit then please do check it out, it’s a utterly bonkers movie that attempts to blend together the most unrelated horror strands like a psychotic Teddy bear, a pit full of trolls, teenage sexual coming of age, slap stick humour, and ghostly apparitions. The lead boy caught up in this cluster fuck is Sammy Snyders (fresh from Huckleberry Finn and His Friends – brave career segway Sammy) who gives it his absolute best. But why is he an unsung hero you ask? Because friends, he quite legendary feeds a blind elderly wheelchair-bound neighbour to the previously mentioned pit trolls as instructed by his possessed teddy bear. Yes that happens and yes it is very funny indeed. Take a look below:
