THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER

WORLDWIDE BLU-RAY PREMIERE

DIGITALLY RESTORED

Arrow Video is pleased to announce the UK Blu-ray debut of Roger Corman’s 1960s American horror classic THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER on Monday August 26th.

When exploitation maestro Corman hired Hollywood legend Vincent Price to star in his adaptation of a classic tale by Edgar Allan Poe, he set in motion a series of Poe-influenced movies that would redefine American cinema history.

When Philip Winthrop (Mark Damon) visits his fiancée Madeleine Usher (Myrna Fahey) in her crumbling family mansion, her brother Roderick (Price) tries to talk him out of the wedding, explaining that the Usher family is cursed and that extending its bloodline will only prolong the agony. Madeleine wants to elope with Philip, but neither of them can predict what ruthless lengths Roderick will go to in order to keep them apart.

Richard Matheson‘s intelligent, literate script is enhanced by Floyd Crosby‘s stylish widescreen cinematography, but it’s Vincent Price‘s anguished conviction in one of his signature roles that makes the film so chillingly memorable over half a century on.
