Screen & Audio Captures of the Day - The Black Pit of Dr. M. (1959)

The release is part of Casa Negra Entertainment's great series of remastered Mexican horror classics.

The orchestral score for Dr. M is also noticeably above average. Here are the main titles, music by Gustavo C. Carrion (yes, Carrion! -Ed.):
