Fall Of The Louse Of Usher, The
From controversial filmmaker Ken Russell (Tommy, Whore, Altered States) comes this weirdly inventive film taken from the pages of Edgar Allan Poe. Russell adds his outrageous brand of humor and twisted vision to the legendary mystery writer's eerie tale.
Found guilty of murdering his wife, rock star Roderick Usher is sent to an insane asylum. Inside a padded cell, he is at the mercy of Dr. Calahari (played by Russell himself), whose mind-blowing shock treatments set off a series of bizarre, nightmarish adventures. As Roderick undergoes the mind-bending therapy, Dr. Calahari and the luscious but strange Nurse Smith unravel the shocking truth behind the Louse of Usher.
