United Kingdom The Fall of the House of Usher (1960) - August 26th

House of Usher Blu-ray



House of Usher Blu-ray




Quote:
Standard Blu-ray and Limited Edition SteelBook Releases. Street Date: August 26th.

When exploitation maestro Roger Corman decided to raise his game by hiring Vincent Price to star in an adaptation of a classic tale by Edgar Allan Poe, he set in train a series of Poe adaptations that would redefine American horror cinema.

When Philip Winthrop (Mark Damon) visits his fiancée Madeleine Usher (Myrna Fahey) in her crumbling family mansion, her brother Roderick (Price) tries to talk him out of the wedding, explaining that the Usher family is cursed and that extending its bloodline will only prolong the agony. Madeleine wants to elope with Philip, but neither of them can predict what ruthless lengths Roderick will go to in order to keep them apart.

Richard Matheson's intelligent, literate script is enhanced by Floyd Crosby's stylish widescreen cinematography, but it's Vincent Price's anguished conviction in one of his signature roles that makes the film so chillingly memorable over half a century on.

Special Features:

High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation
Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
Audio commentary with director and producer Roger Corman
Legend to Legend: Director and former Corman apprentice Joe Dante reflects on the iconic Poe cycle
Through the Pale Door: A Specially-commissioned video essay by critic and filmmaker David Cairns examining Corman's film in relation to Poe's story
Archival interview with Vincent Price
Original Trailer
Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and critic Tim Lucas and an extract from Vincent Price's long out of print autobiography, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
More to be announced!

Yes that steelbook is really good! Nice use of original promo art work - especially the back! I don't usually like the "landscape" style layout but this really works!

I won't be buying the steelbook (only because I don't buy steels now) but I WILL be buying the standard version!

I don't normally buy steels but this cover-art is too much to resist. Great to see one of my fav horror films coming out in such a brilliant edition.

Er I do hope the SB will not be an Arrow store exclusive since I live in India and Amazon UK is currently my best bet for ordering this.

Yup, I think I'll be buying this, it's the only Corman/Price film I've never seen. There's a lovely Vincent Price box being released in the US by Shout Factory (see US forum), but it'll be region A locked, the p&p will be very expensive & then there's the custom charges! I bought The Hanted Palace from Germany & will be buying The Masque Of The Red Death from there when it's released, & now The Fall Of The House Of Usher from Arrow. Hoping it's not too long before:

The Pit & The Pendulum
The Raven
Tales Of Terror.

I'm kind of hoping that Fall of the House of Usher will be the first of a run of Corman / Price Poe adaptations (all of them ideally!) from Arrow.

I reckon there's a good chance of that happening.

Looking forward to it but as with any Arrow release I'll wait for screencaps before ordering.

Pre-ordering an Arrow release is kind of like putting a primed grenade in your pants.

In fairness, Arrow, like Kino have substantially improved in the quality control department.

I seem to remember my King of New York steel arriving in a standard jiffy . Luckily it was mint anyway.

Where'd ya see this U.S. Box set - Is it blu-ray or dvd?
I'm a huge fan of Price! this movie scared the crap out of me when I was a kid.
Have most Price stuff on DVD.
Him and Peter Cushing - my two favourites from the era!
