1.0 out of 5 stars More like the house of pain.......1 1/2 stars July 14, 2008
Format:DVD
Edgar Allen Poe is a very creative and masterful story teller, so take my advice when I say just read his work on this one. I was flipping through the movie channels one night and came upon this, and with Edgar involved I decided to give it a chance. It's one of those movies that you are asking yourself the whole time, why am I watching it? Being a huge fan of low budget horror films, I was kind of exciting to see what this had to offer. The answer is nothing. House Of Usher was very boring and unnecessary to make with Edgar Allen Poe as the involvement around the whole thing. As great as he is, he should never be degraded so badly.

Jill recieves a phone call one day stating that her best friend Maddy Usher that disappeared from her life with no explanation three years prior has died. Not really wanting to go back Jill decides because it was Maddy's last wish to attend her funeral. At the funeral Jill sees Maddy's brother Rick, who she had a relationship with three years ago, he also disappeared with no explanation. After agruing with him about the reasoning behind their disappearance she finds out they both had nerve diseases and didn't want to put her through the pain of seeing them like that. She forgives him and starts to rekindle their old relationship. She has no idea what family secrets are hidden in The House Of Usher.

The storyline was the only thing that was enjoyable, which is because of course Edgar Allen Poe. I am actually very disappointed to have watched something this bad with his name anywhere near it. As I said before just stick with reading the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE GOTHIC TALE July 21, 2008
Format:DVD
MY REVIEW:

THIS IS A GREAT GOTHIC DARK SEXY FILM. WHAT I MEAN BY SEXY IS NOT NUDITY BECAUSE THERE IS NONE IN THIS MOVIE. THIS FILM GOES BACK TO THE CLASSIC STYLE OF FILM MAKING THAT HAMMER HOUSE OF HORRORS KNEW SO WELL. MIX THE WONDERFUL DARK SHADOWS T.V. SHOW AND JUST ABOUT ANY HAMMER MOVIE AND YOU HAVE THIS WONDERFUL MODERN TALE OF EDGAR ALLEN POE'S THE HOUSE OF USHER.

I ENJOYED THIS MOVIE. THE ACTING WAS GREAT. THE STORYLINE, THE UPDATE IS PERFECT. THE SENSUAL SEXY DARK NATURE OF THE MOVIE IS PERFECT. THIS FILM IS FUN AND FILLED WITH A GREAT MYSTERY AND SUSPENSE TYPE OF FEEL. IT WORKS IN MANY WAYS AND IS PERFECT TO VIEW FOR FANS OF HORROR. FOR FANS OF DARK GOTHIC TYPE HORROR.

A WOMAN NAMED JILL IS CALLED BY RICK USHER TO BE TOLD HER BEST FRIEND MADDY HAS DIED THAT SHE HAS NOT SEEN IN THREE YEARS. RICK IS MADDY'S BROTHER. RICK AND JILL WHERE ONCE BOYFRIEND AND GIRLFRIEND BUT RICK AND MADDY PUSHED JILL AWAY THREE YEARS AGO. JILL RETURNS TO THE HUGE HOUSE IN THE WOODS TO WATCH HER BEST FRIEND BE BURIED. SHE IS ASKED TO STAY BY RICK USHER. THE HOUSE IS COLD, DARK AND FILLED WITH MYSTERY. THE MAID MRS. THATCHER (WHO IS PLAYED BY THE WONDERFUL TALENTED AMAZING BETH GRANT ) IS A MYSTERY IN HER SELF. SHE IS LIKE A BRICK WALL, NO EMOTIONS, DEEP AND DARK AND TO THE POINT.

THE MOVIE IS FILMED IN AWAY THAT IT DRAWS YOU IN AND PLACES YOU INSIDE THE HOUSE OF MYSTERY. INSIDE THE DARKNESS YOU WALK AS YOU LISTEN AND SEE THE STRANGE THINGS HAPPENING TO JILL. YOU BECOME APART OF THAT SEXUAL TENSION AND MYSTERY BETWEEN JILL AND RICK. YOU PLAY ALONG WITH THE COLD STARES OF MRS. THATCHER AND HER MEDDLING WAYS. THE FILM TAKES YOU INSIDE THAT CLASSIC GOTHIC REALITY THAT EDGAR ALLEN POE WOULD HAVE LIKED.

Edgar Allan Poe's own "Fall of the House of Usher" is classy 19th century gothic horror fiction. Updated and modernised, it does not really make quite the same impact. Hayley Cloake's film based loosely on the story is, well, downright cheesy, cheaply produced and lacking in finesse. Sexualising the tale, I suppose, could make some sense, but just how "Jill", the female visitor at the manor in this version, comes to perpetuate, in whatever way, the movie's incestuous Usher family line is not very clear. After all, she is not related to the incestuously inclined Usher family present-day and ancestral. On seeing Maddy (i.e., Madeline Usher), Rick Usher's supposedly dead and buried sister, at last, Maddy is all bloody at the groin, making one wonder if Maddy's twin children somehow have been excised from her womb, thanks to the wonders of sci-fi modern medicine, to be placed, again somehow, alive in Jill's uterus, unbeknownst to the recipient, but this is no more than guessing on my part. (If that had been the case, however, one would have to wonder why there is no evidence of it on Jill's person; she only feels the discomfort of early pregnancy.) Well, there are references to a "surrogate" (who else but Jill?) in the novel which Rick, a writer of pop mass-marketed fiction, is portrayed as writing, obviously based on what is happening at the House of Usher, so at least this seems to me to be a reasonable surmise. (Maybe something like Voodoo is the mechanism through which this could have been accomplished, if the twin babies' parentage really has to be Maddy as well as Rick; somehow, though, I sense that my supposition is falling apart!) A film so sexually explicit as this one should have made that more clear. Read more ›
