Movie Info

Jamie Benjamin (Sammy Snyders) has a problem... He's 12 years old, horny as hell, and has a Teddy Bear that he telepathically talks to. Yeah, he's a little freaky, but not too bad of a kid -- that is, unless you piss him off... Then it's off to THE PIT! Yep, you got it, Jamie also has a tendency to throw people down into a deep, cavernous hole in a nearby forest that's inhabited by a bunch of hungry and hairy prehistoric Trogs (Sadly, not the band -- The Troggs!). It's hard being an over-sexed misunderstood kid in a midwestern town, but somehow Jamie gets by just fine. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovimore

The 97-minute running time seems every bit of 20 minutes longer than the filmmakers were ready for.

Audience Reviews for The Pit (Teddy)

Pure Drive-In Movie, I was very surprised at the nudity and the age of the troubled boy, my guess he is supposed to be 11-12. And he still talks to his teddy. Please/. He finds some ape like creatures in a hole in the woods and starts feeding them meat, then humans, has fantasies about his teacher and baby sitter. Yet a trashy Drive-In second feature that I would have driven away from, and that takes a lot. 1 star

Terminally weird movie has a 'bad seed' who feeds his enemies to his new found friends, a group of prehistoric monsters he calls Trogs who live in a pit. A so-bad-it's-good favorite of mine.

Disturbing movie about a creepy boy named Jamie, who is preoccupied with sex, and has a teddy bear which tells him to do bad things. He pushes people down into a deep pit where little carnivourous creatures live. When the boy goes after his big-breasted babysitter, things get more disturbing. Me not like much!
