House of Usher Review
By Christopher Null
Good old haunted-house horror from frequent collaborators Roger Corman and Vincent Price. Mark Damon's hapless visitor to the titular house finds a brother (Price) and sister (Myrna Fahey) in failing health, all while the house seems to crumble around them. It's hot gruel all around as Damon tries to nurse the girl -- his wannabe bride -- back to health, but the cursed house will have none of it. Filled with ineffective fright gags (shock cut to... an empty bed!), the Poe-inspired source material occasionally rises above the Corman-fueled production.
Aka The Fall of the House of Usher.
