    Philip (Mark Damon) arrives at the home of his fiancée Madeline (Myrna Fahey), but her brother Roderick (Vincent Price) does not want him to see her. Roderick tells Philip of an ancient curse on the Usher family and that he cannot allow their marriage. Insanity and death are all that is in store for him and Madeline, but Philip is not prepared to believe take hi at his word.
    Absolutely barmy but wonderfully ghoulish; Vincent Price is wonderfully sinister and the fate of those in the film isn't clear until the very end. Great stuff!

That is until he meets Lisbeth (Lana Turner), stepdaughter of the prosecutor he originally put him in prison.
    I really enjoyed the story told in this noir, it may have been predictable in parts but they still told their story well.

    I was bored. I was bored during and after watching the film, not before.
