Someone asked this on another forum I was browsing.  The description of the pendulum in the film made it sound like it was NOT Pit And The Pendulum or an update/remake of it.  Sounds like I must have watched it or seen it on a video/dvd cover.
The description:

There was this old movie playing either on Sci Fi Theatre, Creature
Feature, or Monsters We Know and Love.  The only scene I remember from
it was a pendulum with a gold metallic sun (including possibly a face,
and petals around the circumference).  The pendulum started to swing
faster and faster at the climax of the movie.  Ring a bell with anyone?

The Torture Chamber of Dr. Sadism possibly? There was a pendulum scene in that.

Hmm, thanks.  I'll check back with them.  I get the feeling that's not it but who knows; they may have confused certain things about the film (and we all know how easily that can happen).
There were so many medieval/renaissance era torture films of the late 60s/70s that would take a long while to sift through.  Maybe there was a pendulum scene in The Devils or Mark Of The Devil.. can't remember.

Not the Devils, if we are talking about the same film. There's a lot going on in the film. Some of which is still hard to find in any form of the film, but . . .?! There's no pendulum scene that I can recollect. Maybe Mark of the Devil, which I have never seen.

They said they found it; THE WIZARD OF MARS.  I would never have guessed a pendulum would be in that movie.. never seen it but it sounds like MST3K fodder.  Thanks for the help!
