Storyline

Dr. Alan Harker receives an invitation and arrives at the house of his former professor at the Prague University, Roderic Usher, who lives with his housekeeper Helen in an old castle. Dr. Usher is insane, living with ghosts, and invites his former student Harker to proceed with his research. He tells to Harker that when his daughter Melissa died many years ago, he had developed a means to reanimate her using the blood of prostitutes. Along many years, Dr. Usher and his assistant Morpho kidnapped and killed many young women to keep Melissa alive. But when Harker meets Dr. Seward, who is the doctor of Dr. Usher, he explains that Dr. Usher is delusional. What is the truth about Dr. Usher and his secret?

Morpho forever!
7 January 2001 | by (Toulouse, France) – See all my reviews

Amazing! Once again Franco hits the fan with an incredibly strange picture. Slow to the point of boredom, awfully cheap-looking (there is no photography to speak of), it is also extremely badly played. Howard Vernon hams it up a lot, and the whole thing looks more like a stage play than a cinema movie. There is no real plot, only typically Franco-ish characters (stupid, pointless, bored and flawed) filling the place with screams and talk. As Usher remembers the past, many sequences from THE AWFUL DOCTOR ORLOFF are inserted to achieve the running time of 90 minutes. No need to say, the ending of it all is more than welcome. Doctor Orlof strikes again! God bless Jess!
