CGiii Comment

A mesmerising piece of work...especially with the [contemporary] Hands of Ruin soundtrack.

This amount of style, this amount of expressionism...modern-day filmmakers should take inspiration and learn from the true pioneers.

A traveller arrives at the Usher mansion to find that the sibling inhabitants, Roderick and Madeline Usher, are living under a mysterious family curse: Roderick's senses have become painfully acute, while Madeline has become nearly catatonic.
