I was forced to watch this again when a friend brought it to a bad movie party (ah, the pasttimes of nerds). It never occurred to me before, but the Tra-la-logs kill people awfully quickly.  Everyone he dumps in the pit dies instantly.  The poor folks the Tra-la-logs kill outside the pit die instantly.  I just have to think being eaten alive would be a rather slow death.

I thought that THE PIT was a hoot. I watched it the other day with a group of friends and we all  laughed the whole way through. I think the clip with the mean ol' lady being pushed in the pit deserved a slime nomination. The kid who played Jaime is actually a pretty good actor. If you like terrible b-movies and want a good laugh, I recommend "The Pit."

 I live in the town where this terrible "film" was made. It is a small community called Beaver Dam (Wisconsin), cute name, huh? Anyway, I have been curious to see this movie because a few of my old friends houses are in it (as well as a few of some old friends). The only problem is that the darn thing is never in at the local video store. I asked the manager about it and he is clueless. But thanks to you, I get some idea as to what I can expect from this picture. Thanks...

THE PIT was a great movie! Sure, it's only fun to watch about every 6 or 7 years, but it seems fresh every time! I mean, it has a psycho kid, flesh-eating trolls and a unholy porn-loving teddy bear--what else could you ask for?

What the crap?  Nobody, but nobody, suspects that this obviously psycho 12 year old -- who talks to his friggin' teddy bear(!) -- had anything to do with the deaths of all those people that he knew and had a grudge against?  And the librarian didn't recognize his voice on the phone or see him taking the flash picture of her when she pulled off her leotard?  He should have been shove in the pit sooner.

    This is another cool B-movie that is a little different from other B-movies.  Why?  Because it combines three movies into one!  The film makers took a script about a lunatic kid, one about monsters in a pit, and one about a living toy, and put it into one movie!  GREAT FUN!

This movies sucks all ass!!. Slow and painful to watch. Keep a bottle of pepto bismal with you handy if your going to watch this crap.

This movie is 'The Pits', it is terrible.
Awful acting, writing, and direction, what a waste of time.
The ending is kind of amusing when the kid is pushed into the pit, but it's not worth sticking around for.
Avoid this one at all costs.

This one's a classic!  I bought it at a yard sale and boy was I surprised.  Although with frontal nudity, I can't believe it wasn't on Mystery Science Theater 3000.  All MST fans will enjoy the pure evil that lies within this one, and all bad movie lovers will too.

This movie was just painful to watch.  It burned itself into my memory and, no matter how hard I try, I cannot forget it.  Perhaps that is good thing, then I would be tempted to rent it and torture myself all over again.  Ouch.

I've gotta agree with whamontree -- you should think that getting eaten alive (even by multiple eaters, as opposed to a single one, like Jaws) would be a fairly slow process.  I mean, he dumps people in the pit, and that's it??  You hear growling from the Tra-la-la, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, deck the halls...urhm, I was saying, the Tra-la-logs start growling, but no one screams.  I should think (although I hope to God I never have to find out personally -- urk!) that getting dumped into a pit would be enough to get me wailing a bit, the sight of the little bastards would most probably prompt a weensy bit o' screamin' from me, and having them start to filet the skin off my breastbone would DEFINITELY set my vocal cords on high frequency!!But most of the folks in this flick don't seem to mind the getting-ripped-to-shreds-and-becoming-a-monster-buffet part, just the fact they're getting tossed in.  Maybe they're scared of heights...

Someone mentioned the fact that this movie took a scene from the middle of the movie and presented it at the beginning. This can hardly be counted against the movie, since several award-winning movies (American Beauty and Casino come immediately to mind) have done the exact same thing.

I saw this movie about 4 years ago and it changed my life forever. It is the funniest movie out there. That is ironic because it was meant to be a horror flick. I have seen it about 30 times and know every piece of humor in it. My favorite parts include anytime when Jamie just begins running or takes off suddenly for no reason. Here are the top 10 scenes:

10. When he says goodbye to his pets in the tararium. He say bye real quick like a samll kid and taps the glass, it is funny.

9. When he is pushing the Old lady across the field and her arms are flapping.

8. The guy with the green Carmen Gia that the babysitter dates. A little wierd that her boyfriend disapeard a couple days earlier and wasnt even found and she is already dating another guy.

7. When Jaime climbs down the fire escape at the library in the beginning. He looks so freaking funny.

6. When Jamie tells the butcher, "Well, it is for 5...people.

5. When his dad (who resembles Jerry Stiller)picks him up from under the table. "None of that young man!"

4. When the trolologs run into the hole like navy seals, swinging down the rope.

3. When the babysitter's boyfriend calls him "Little bastard" when he chases him into the forest part.

2. When Jamie is showing teddy the pictures of Ms. Livingston and he says "Check out the look on her face!" and makes the expression.

1. When Jamie hops on Abrigail's bike and it falls apart!!!

I live in the town where the horride, slow movie was made. The cop was right nothing ever happens here, ever. But a good movie for the strong of heart.
