Storyline

A traveler arrives at the Usher mansion to visit his old friend, Roderick Usher. Upon arriving, however, he discovers that Roderick and his sister, Madeline, 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 guest 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.

could have been perfect
17 April 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most faithful and well done adaptation to the book, not necessarily regarding the story, but the feeling Poe intended for us. The actors are all excellent. The atmosphere is impressive. Could have been the one. The problem appears at the most important moment, when the principal character realizes much too quick that the sister is not dead, but buried alive. This destroys the suspense. But the movie is still worthing a look. It is still the best Usher I saw, if I do not count the one with Vincent Price, all others were extremely bad. The satanism added is a very good choice, and very Poeish. Too bad they destroyed it at the end.
