House of Usher with The Fall of the House of Usher

1960 / 142min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: ROGER CORMAN

CAST: VINCENT PRICE, MARK DAMON, MYRNA FAHEY

The first of Corman’s eight-film cycle of deliriously stylish, extravagantly colorful Edgar Allan Poe adaptations has the director’s go-to star Vincent Price as Roderick Usher, accursed owner of a mansion hemmed in by a blasted black swamp and his conviction of being under a hereditary curse. Shown with Jean Epstein’s own Usher, a mélange of themes from several Poe tales, and an influential lodestone of the surrealist cinema.
