  • Description

    When exploitation maestro Roger Corman decided to raise his game by hiring Vincent Price to star in an adaptation of a classic tale by Edgar Allan Poe, he set in train a series of Poe adaptations that would redefine American horror cinema.

    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.

    Special Features:

    • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation
    • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
    • Audio commentary with director and producer Roger Corman
    • Interview with director and former Corman apprentice Joe Dante
    • Through the Pale Door: A Specially-commissioned video essay by critic and filmmaker David Cairns examining Corman’s film in relation to Poe’s story
    • Archival interview with Vincent Price
    • Original Trailer
    • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
    • Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and critic Tim Lucas and an extract from Vincent Price’s long out of print autobiography, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
    • And more to be announced!

    Awards and Reviews:

    “Vincent Price’s awesome performance alone is worth watching this film” – Ain’t it Cool

    “a dark, delicious treat for anyone who loves old fashioned horror…a classic gothic horror” - Eye For Film

    “Moody, atmospheric, and effective… Price is wonderful as the spooky owner” - TVGuide
