House of Usher (1960)
Movie Review by Professor Corpse Rot

House of Usher (1960) This wasn't the first Corman/Price movie I've seen, but it was ultimately one of my favorites. Price plays the role of Roderick Usher, who along with his sister Madeline, are inflicted with a terrible family curse that has varying affects. Phillip Winthrope, a man who is returning to his loved one, Madeline, is informed of their unfortunate malady. This film is riddled with dark themes and underlying motives, which seems par for the course when dealing with Mr. Poe. I shouldn't have to go into detail about how well Price delivers his performance in this one; it's clear he goes above and beyond in each ensuing Poe conversion. Unlike the other Corman/Price films, I felt a bit of isolation in terms of the set pieces - the sense of a "wide open" atmosphere is certainly nonexistent, giving the perfect portrayal of two cursed individuals who remain walled off from the rest of society.
