Watch House of Usher - Alternative Versions.
"House of Usher" is an excellent start for Roger Corman's cycle of films
based on the work of Edgar Allan Poe. There have been many remakes, but the
Corman films remain the definitive statement. Corman was able to capture the
feel of Poe's work and that's something that the remakes couldn't even
touch. It also provides a tour de force for Vincent Price and establishes
him as a great actor.
The film was shot on a budget of $270,000 and it looks GREAT. "House of
Usher" is a fabulous calling card for American International Pictures, the
distributor. Mostly known for making grade Z schlock, Corman's films gave
AIP real class. This is also Corman's first film in CinemaScope and he makes
the most of the widescreen here. It earns him a distinction of mine as a
"Master of the Widescreen", or filmmakers who create complex and worthwhile
compositions in the widescreen frame. The only problem is that the Poe films
die on TV, due to the horrific "pan-and-scan" process. Luckily for us,
American Movie Classics show these Poe films often in letterbox and MGM is
releasing the cycle on letterboxed DVDs.
For a film that runs 85 minutes, "House of Usher" packs a lot into its'
narrative. It is the most faithful of the Poe adaptations, although
screenwriter Richard Matheson does take some liberties with the source
material, as any great adaptation should. Floyd Crosby's CinemaScope
photography is excellent as usual and Daniel Haller's elaborate sets make
this look more expensive than it really is. Vincent Price's performance as
Usher sets the tone for his future appearances in other Poe films. It neatly
combines calm and frenzy together and I can't think of anyone else who would
have done a better job. He should have received an Oscar nomination and
maybe even the Oscar itself.
Note: "House of Usher" introduces the infamous "Burning Rafters" sequence.
If you watch these Poe films back-to-back, you'll see this same sequence
repeat itself over and over in several of the films (Tomb of Ligeia and The
Raven come to mind). It is a mild criticism, but it is such a great sequence
and it is so effectively shot that I didn't mind seeing it again and
**** out of 4 stars
