Lady Usher, a retelling of Edgar Allen Poe’s short story The Fall of the House of Usher, is out today on Digital from writer-director-producer George Adams (Climate of the Hunter).
In the film, “When Roderick (John Tupy) learns that his father has taken ill, he tells his fiancé Morgan (Billie D. Merritt, “Deputy”) that he must leave college and head to his gothic-style southern home to be with his family. Though he warns her not to come, Morgan is encouraged by her friend Liz (Allyson Cristofaro, Breaking Them Up) to follow Roderick, making a surprise and unannounced trip to be by his side and meet his family. Shocked by her arrival, Roderick is forced to introduce Morgan to everyone – who are all learning about her for the first time – including the family matriarch, Lady Usher (Theresa Santiago, Emerald, Texas), who makes it evidently and venomously clear that she is unwelcome. With a household cursed by madness and unrequited love, Morgan’s arrival spells the beginning of the end as Roderick’s family will stop at nothing to prevent their marriage. Can Morgan survive long enough to take Roderick away from the madness that is the House of Usher?”
John Ferguson (Army of Frankensteins), Michael Gibbons (Wildlife), and Kim Titus (“Breakers”) also star in Lady Usher, arriving on DVD on October 10, 2021, from Indican Pictures.
