That evening, Roderick tells his guest of an old Usher family curse: any time there has been more than one Usher child, all of the siblings have gone insane and died horrible deaths. As the days wear on, the effects of the curse reach their terrifying climax...

House of Usher Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Roger Corman's The Fall of the House of Usher arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"The Fall of the House of Usher was transferred from a 35mm interpositive. The was transferred in HD on a Spirit DataCine at Deluxe Digital Median in Sherman Oaks, California. Restoration was performed at Deluxe, removing instances of dirt, debris and scratches, using Reneat and DRS. Audio was transferred from a 35mm mono mag. The colorist was Kevin O'Connor and the project was managed by Chris Lane of MGM."

The film has a very solid organic look. Where light is not restricted depth is quite impressive. Clarity is also very pleasing. Colors are lush and vibrant, never appearing artificially boosted. Some stabilization adjustments have also been applied to give the film a better balanced look. There are no traces of excessive degraining corrections. Problematic sharpening adjustments have not been performed either. This being said, during select frame transitions some minor sharpness and contrast fluctuations are present, but it is obvious that these fluctuations are indeed inherited (screencapture #10 is one such transition). Lastly, there are no large cuts, debris, splices, stains, or warps, but there are a few very tiny flecks that pop up. All in all, considering the materials that were used to produce the high-definition transfer, the final result is indeed very pleasing. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


House of Usher Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Arrow Video have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

The lossless track is outstanding. Les Baxter's score atmospheric score benefits the most from the lossless treatment, but the dialog also has wonderful depth. Listening to Vincent Price's calm but spooky voice is quite a treat. Overall dynamic movement is also very good for a mono track. For the record, there are no pops, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
