Boring, Lame and Messy, 8 July 2014
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Dr. Alan Harker (Robert Foster) receives an invitation and arrives at the house of his former professor at the Prague University, Roderic Usher (Howard Vernon), who lives with his housekeeper Helen (Lina Romay) 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 (Françoise Blanchard) 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 (Olivier Mathot) kidnapped and killed many young women to keep Melissa alive. But when Harker meets Dr. Seward (Daniel Villiers), who is the doctor of Dr. Usher, he explains that Dr. Usher is delusional. What is the truth about Dr. Usher and his secret?

"Revenge in the House of Usher" is a boring, lame and messy movie by Jess Franco based on the story of the Edgar Allan Poe. The plot is a senseless mess, the old castle is actually a preserved castle, there is no continuity in the edition in this forgettable film. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "A Queda da Casa de Usher" ("The Fall of the House of Usher")
