VERDICT – 4/5

 

 


PROS –
1) A man arrives at his fiancée’s family mansion but he’s asked to leave and forgo his intentions as the family (as well as the mansion) is afflicted by a cursed bloodline.
2) Vincent Price as Roderick Usher dominated the screen with his great performance as the cursed scion of the Usher family.
3) A must watch for gothic horror fans. A literal adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic horror story.

 

 

CONS –
N/A

 

 

QUOTE –
Philip Winthrop: You have murdered your sister, Mr. Usher, and I intend to see that you hang for it.
Roderick Usher: Arrange it quickly then. The old house crumbles.
