The Inn

approximately 1990, a movie featuring some kind of inn or boarding house where guests are crushed in their beds by a platform full of boulders hidden above.  As they sleep, the platform is lowered by the owners, using a contraption of chains and pulleys.  In the morning, the dead folks are set at the kitchen table for breakfast.  Later they are dropped into a pit or well and covered with lime.

The only line I remember was the owner telling his wife, “You have no idea how much lime it takes.”

    1. Nope, but it might be a contemporary. I watched both of them about the same time. Both were remarkable in their sick brutality. Can’t imagine why they stuck in my head, but they did. And it puts an itch where I can’t scratch.
