the audio comments and learned how there was no budget for this movie and everyone came together anyway-that made me love it even
more. I respect it for that! I have watched horrible actors before and these are good actors! Well, maybe not the friend back at the bar in
town, she sounds staccato. Beth Grant is an incredible actress. The houses used are lovely and often I rent a movie just to see that aspect.
The fact that they have one of EAP's descendants at the funeral scene-OMG!!! Of course the Roger Corman productions are well-known and
I love VP in those, but they are very cheesy! This movie at least uses real houses to film and not cheesy sets.
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.

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.
It is not big budget so don't go wanting all that cash and flare its simpler but just a nice rainy day film if your into the strange.

Horrible. If you haven't seen it, do not waste your time. Two hours of my life that I can't get back!Published 18 months ago by Amazon Customer
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. Read morePublished on September 24, 2013 by Gerald Parker
I teach English (10th grade) and ordered this video for my students to watch in addition to reading the Edgar Allen Poe text and the viewing the original video version. Bad idea. Read morePublished on June 8, 2010 by T. Ramsey
Old Edgar must be rolling in his grave. This is the most disgraceful, pathetic dreck I have ever seen associated with his great name. I hope he haunts these people.Published on February 12, 2009 by Arntzville
