I concur, 22 February 2000
Author: JHC3 from Seattle, Washington

I understand that director Jesús Franco has a strong cult following and that when his name is attached to a film, it is something many people will pay attention to. Unfortunately, I did and I paid good money to rent this awful film. The problems with "Revenge in the House of Usher" are too numerous to mention, but I will provide a sampling.

First off, except for the name of Howard Vernon's character, this film has nothing, and I mean nothing, to do with the works of Edgar Allan Poe.

Second, this is a slow-moving and intensely dull film, one which literally put me to sleep. I had to turn the film off and finish it several hours later. Sound familiar?

Third, the acting is atrocious. Perhaps this has something to do with the pathetic screenplay. I don't know nor do I care.

Fourth, a long, black and white portion in the middle of the film is taken directly from an earlier Franco film, also featuring Howard Vernon. I believe that it is from the original Dr. Orloff film, but I cannot confirm this since I have not yet viewed any of Franco's work that pre-dates 1970. This black and white section is provided as kind of a flashback from the point of view of Dr. Usher. Whatever.

Save your money and especially, save your precious time. Avoid this like you would the ebola virus. The only way I was able to finish the darn thing was so that I could write this review and warn users of the IMDb database.
