The movie is in color and probably from the 1960s. I don't think it is Mysterious Island or Captain Nemo and the Underwater City.

The only scene I remember involves characters in a room, with wooden planks on the floor and the walls. The center is bare and prisoners face a group questioning them.

They are wearing what looks like pirate or sailor costumes from an earlier century.

At the center of the room is a trap door. After questioning one of the prisoners, one of the men opens the trap door, revealing the mouth of a monster. The prisoner is thrown into the trap door and is eaten by the monster, feet first.

The only other film that this remotely reminds me of is The Lost Continent from 1968.

This film starts out like the Love Boat on acid, as a cast of varied characters, with various issues, take Captain Eric Portman's leaky cargo ship to escape their troubles. When a violent storm strikes, the ship is swept into the Sargasso Sea and our heroes find themselves trapped on an island of man-eating seaweed, populated by giant monster crabs and some Spanish conquistadors who think the Inquisition is still on.

Yes, that must be it! The trap door with the mouth of the monster is shown in the trailer. Thanks very much! – Anton Jul 25 '12 at 20:42
