Quoth the Raven, Nevermore #31 and Oh! The Horror S&S Challenges

Quoth The Raven, Nevermore Challenge #31 is POEcabulary.  Use any works by Poe that will inspire your piece.

I have combined this challenge with another challenge over at the Smeared and Smudged Forum.

Oh! The Horror Challenge is this month is the 1961 movie The Pit and the Pendulum.  A movie based off the work by Edgar Allen Poe.

I have made a page that is inspired by both the movie and the short story.  Just the love that sense of madness as the pendulum gets closer and closer.
