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.
