The Fall of the House of Usher on Netflix is a great series.
It’s difficult to describe it was so well done. The story follows the fall or destruction of the Usher Crime family.
It takes place in modern times and describes the paranormal rise and fall of the family.
Each episode shows a different piece of the family and what happens to them, while moving the story forward to its end.
For me, as an Edgar Allen Poe fan, the best thing was the Poe Easter eggs hidden throughout the show.
The series title is a title of a Poe story. Likewise, each episode is named after a Poe work, and gives hints to what might occur.
The characters carry the names of Poe characters in his different works, and poems. Also, throughout the series. Poems or works are quoted or recited at appropriate times.
It was excellently done, and is a must see for any Poe or Horror fan.
The series stars Bruce Greenwood as Roderick Usher, Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell, and Mark Hamill as Arthur Pym. The series was created by Mike Flanagan and was directed by him or Michael Fimognari.
It can be viewed on Netflix.
