Trivia:
Several scenes in black and white from "The Awful Dr. Orlof" (1962) were used in the third cut of the film as flashbacks of a young Usher, since Usher and Orlof were interpreted by the same actor, Howard Vernon.See more »

Yick!, 19 January 2011
Author: phibes012000 from The House of Good Schlock

I really have to give up on Jess Franco movies. This film was a total ripoff for anybody expecting a gory version of a Poe adaption. It had very little to do with Poe's famous story and much to do with Franco's previous Dr. Orloff film. A good chunk of this mess is scenes from Orloff and looks like what it is: padding. The box art for the version I saw has a woman being menaced with a power drill: no such scene exists in this movie. What does remain of Poe is a badly done retread of earlier efforts concerning the fall of the house of Usher: all done better by the 1960 film by Roger Corman. Nothing to recommend. I have heard there is a Spanish version that is completely different and much better but at this point who cares?! Avoid!
