Roderick Usher (Herbert Stern) and his sister Madeline (Hildegarde
Watson) are living in their mansion as reclusives, and while she is
suffering from catatonia, he more and more succumbs to some form of
madness. When a traveller (Melville Webber) seeks abode in their home, he
can only witness the siblings destroying themselves, as Roderick has
Madeline entombed after her latest (and most severe) attack of catatonia,
and then goes mad over it, not at all helped from the fact that the not
quite dead Madeline returns from her grave. In the end, the house of Usher
virtually destroys itself ...
Granted, this is not an easily
accessible film, and if you have not read Edgar Allan Poe's story it's
based on, you will have a difficult time makiing sense of it at all.
all said, Fall of the House of Usher is a fascinating film, a film
that tells its story in expressionist settings and almost entirely in
associative images rather than follow any rules of straight storytelling,
and despite the fact that most of the images created in the movie are as
far removed from realism as possible, it still creates an eery atmosphere
of unease and comes across as properly spooky.
Recommended, but do
yourself a favour and read Poe's story first!
