Director: Jess Franco
In an audacious feat of cinematic bricolage, Jess Franco utilised footage from three decades of filming to craft a unique story that pays homage to the morbid tales of Edgar Allan Poe while indulging the director’s personal obsessions.
Antonio Mayans stars as Harker (a nod to Bram Stoker’s Dracula), who visits the crumbling castle of his former mentor, Eric Usher (Howard Vernon), now on the brink of mental collapse. Just as the house opens its doors to reveal dreadful, erotic secrets in every corner, Usher delves into his own memories and shares the causes of his approaching madness
