Roger Corman

The Fall of the House of Usher

Director Roger Corman Composer Les Baxter Cast Vincent Price, Mark Damon, Myrna Fahey
85' - 1960 - Drama, Horror
‘House of Usher’ is an early Roger Corman classic, richly photographed by Floyd Crosby and featuring one of Vincent Price's finest performances. Benefiting from a well-crafted screenplay by Richard Matheson, Edgar Allan Poe's source-story is transformed into a visual masterpiece of dread and doom. Price's Roderick Usher is both sympathetic and unsavory: he's not so much a monster as someone who has been overwhelmed by his own sense of impending disaster. The film represented a substantial leap for Corman in production values, demonstrating that he could handle more complex films than the throwaway quickies which had dominated his career.
