The Fall of the House of Usher Poster

The House of Usher is About to Fall Again

Ahead of its World Premiere at this year’s edition of Fantastic Fest, Netflix has released a trailer for Mike Flanagan’s (Absentia, The Haunting of Bly Manor) eight-part take on Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher. You can check out the synopsis, some stills, and of course the trailer, below. While the plot certainly seems to bear little resemblance to Poe’s story it has a solid cast and the trailer looks promising. We’ll find out if it lives up to that promise on October 12th when it premieres on Netflix. In the meantime, you can find out more here.

Synopsis:
From Mike Flanagan, the creator of The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass, a wicked horror series based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Ruthless siblings Roderick and Madeline Usher have built Fortunato Pharmaceuticals into an empire of wealth, privilege and power. But past secrets come to light when the heirs to the Usher dynasty start dying at the hands of a mysterious woman from their youth.
