Storyline

Three years after her lover, Rick Usher, and her best friend, Maddy Usher, had suddenly disappeared from her life without explanation, Jill Masters receives a phone call with news of Maddy's death. Her last wish was for Jill to attend her funeral. Conflicted, Jill returns to the house of Usher, a remote New England enclave. Her love affair with Rick is rekindled as she learns he suffers from the same malady that robbed his twin sister, Maddy, of her sharp mind before taking her life. His affliction is manifested in a rare nerve condition, which renders him hyper-sensitive. Under the watchful eye of the caretaker, Nurse Thatcher, Jill appears to be haunted by the ghost of Maddy, and the secret of the house of Usher is exposed Written by Anonymous

Utterly Unwatchable
17 October 2007 | by (Axeyard) – See all my reviews

This could only appeal to someone who hasn't seen many movies, and/or is too young to be able to discriminate between good and bad in terms of film -- or perhaps to those who want an unwatchable movie playing in the background.

The main parts are acted without any conviction, without any apparent regard for mood or color. Music is lame, cobbled together from entry-level loops, with a lowest common denominator feel.

The supporting cast overwhelms the juvenile leads, with leaden performances dispensed to creaky-hinged editing without vision or purpose.

The hints at praise on these boards are good evidence that IMDb is the first port of call for all film-makers, great and small. The entire crew appear to have been requested to press the appropriate buttons on their browsers -- the standard substitute for the director's failure to do so in the actual movie.
