We bring you Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Pit and the Pendulum” in one terrifying rap song. The lyrics summarize the plot of Poe’s classic tale of torture. First, the narrator gets thrown in prison, and then he’s surrounded by darkness. Accompany him as he discovers the pit, the pendulum, maniacally hungry rats and scalding walls, but from the comfort of your own chair. Will he ever escape from this chamber of horrors?
