The Fall of the House of Usher

Roger Corman found himself on a roll when he directed this atmospheric 1960 Edgar Allan Poe adaptation starring Vincent Price. Corman and Price would go on to do a string of gothic hits, including 1961's Pit and the Pendulum, 1962's Premature Burial, 1962's Tales of Terror, 1963's The Raven and 1964's The Masque of the Red Death . Price is magnificent as Roderick Usher, who along with his sister Madeline (longtime TV actress Myrna Fahey), suffers from a bizarre family curse within the walls of an opulent but crumbling mansion. 79 minutes
