At the urgent request of his friend Roderick Usher, a man journeys to the strange House of Usher but becomes enmeshed in the darkness that threatens to destroy not only the last remaining family members but also the very house itself.
After a long journey, a traveller and his wife arrive at the Usher mansion. Upon arriving, however, they discover that the mansion's sibling inhabitants, Roderick and Madeline Usher, have been afflicted with a mysterious malady: Roderick's senses have become painfully acute, while Madeline has become nearly catatonic. That evening, Roderick tells his guests of an old Usher family curse: any time there has been more than one Usher child, all of the siblings have gone insane and died horrible deaths. As the days wear on, the effects of the curse reach their terrifying climax. Written by

This telefilm version of the Edgar Allan Poe classic was originally telecast as one in a series of telefilms loosely based on the old "Illustrated Classics" comic books(HUCKLEBERRY FINN and THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS were two other adaptations). No, it isn't high art, but it is an admirable effort given the constraints of the medium. The plot and spooky atmosphere was enough to keep this(then)10-year old fixated. The whole effort reminds me of the Hammer horror films, just scaled down for television.
