Event

House of User screening at Vincentennial
House of Usher
Roger Corman, 1960, 79 min.
âHouse of Usherâ was not only Roger Cormanâs first collaboration with Vincent Price but also the first time the legendary director had the budget to shoot in color. The film opens with Philip Winthrop (Mark Damon) riding through a twisted, burned-out forest. His destination is the titular house, where he finds himself most unwelcome. He must rescue his fiancée, Madeline (Myrna Fahey), from the clutches of her tragic, haunted brother, Roderick Usher (Price), who believes that the family line is cursed by madness and that his sister cannot be permitted to bear children. âHouse of Usherâ set the gothic standard for the Corman-Price-Poe films to follow, with the Hollywood Reporter noting that the movie is âin the grand tradition of the horror film, with rich and lavish settings, a great horror house slowly disintegrating, guttering candles flickering in the wind, murky secret passageways and cobwebbed burial crypts.â
With an introduction and post-film discussion by Jonathan Malcolm Lampley, author of âWomen in the Horror Films of Vincent Price.â
