      Audience Member The complete miscast of hunky Austin Nichols as Roderick Usher is the first warning about the utter betrayal of Poe's wonderful tale. The only saving grace is provided by the always professional Beth Grant. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Do people think their movie is automatically good if they base it around a Poe story?! Absolutely terrible. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this movie mj Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Haven't watched the original but this is very slow and neither it contains horror flicks nor suspense thrills. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A modern remake of the dark Edgar Allen Poe story. The cimenatography is usual to Think Films. A college student finds out her best friend and twin sister to her ex boyfriend has died. At the funeral she is re-united with her ex Rick who she finds out is also sick with some disease that has plagued the entire Usher family line. Jill finds herself seeing the ghost of her dead friend Maddy all over the house. The maid of the household played by Beth Grant (the creepy mom from Donnie Darko) who wants Jill out of the house seems to pop up everywhere something odd is happening. Rick who is writing a novel begs Jill to stay for him and to read the novel when he is finished. Strange things begin to happen and Jill finds herself trapped in a fight for her life. There really wasn't many scary scenes and the music seemed like they were about 5 min off on timing the score to the movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A very...very...very...slow-paced...and boring...film. No action, what so ever. It's almost as bad as "The Skeptic." However, it did have some interesting parts and a story, so I'm going to give it some credit. But if you're looking for a good scary, bloody horror movie, this is not the film for you.
