Horror 101 – Episode 60: Fall of the House of Usher – December 20th, 2016
The House of Usher is no more – and the place whereon it stood is as if – it had never been.
Welcome back to the Horror 101 show. This will be our 60th podcast, coming at you just in time for your holidays. To help us celebrate this 60th milestone we’re continuing the podcast with more classic Vincent Price horror and focusing on Roger Coreman’s Fall of the House of Usher from 1960. Based on the timelessly macabre short story by Edgar Allan Poe. This film is a king in the Gothic Horror enterprise with stunning atmosphere, rich sets and fantastic wardrobe. This was the first of many Poe adaptations featuring Price from American International Pictures. We’ll make some comparisons between the film and the original story and talk about Poe himself. Sit back, enjoy some eggnog and let Horror 101 bring some classic darkness to your holidays.
