Product details


Low-budget Euro shocker directed by Spanish horror maverick Jess Franco. Dr Alan Harker (Antonio Mayans) arrives at the sinister, crumbling mansion of his former university professor, Dr Roderic Usher (Howard Vernon), to find the old man in the grip of madness and paranoia. His daughter Melissa (Françoise Blanchard) is in a coma, and Usher repeatedly tries to revive her with the blood of abducted, murdered women. On top of this, he is continually taunted by the vampire-ghost of his dead wife Helen (Lina Romay). Allen finds himself unable to escape the mounting horrors, bloodspill and sheer uncontrolled terror that grip the house, which reach their terrifying climax when Usher is finally torn apart by wailing Demons of the Dead and thrown into Hell.

Franco fans will love this. 25 Nov. 2001
By The Soft Machine Operator - Published on
Format: DVD
Typical Fanco film - castles, chained women, mad doctors, ghosts, lots of atmospheric photography. The story is an insane cross between "House of Usher", and the Orloff films (And does re-use some Orloff footage for flashbacks.) The film looks very nice, with plenty of colour and fantastic scenery shots. Not one of Franco's best, but atmospheric and entertaining.

Pretty difficult to watch, good luck. 2 May 2013

I love Mr Jess Franco but this film was very boring and tame. I wouldnt really want anyone to watch it. No reason to watch again and no gore, nudity or excitement. Pick up only if you watch all his films like me and just have to know whats its all about.

This House Should Fall... 2 July 2013
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on
Format: DVD
REVENGE IN THE HOUSE OF USHER is Jess Franco's take on the classic Poe tale. As such, it bears no resemblance to the original story whatsoever. It stars Howard Vernon (AWFUL DR. ORLOFF, DR. ORLOFF'S MONSTER, ZOMBIE LAKE) as the insane Dr. Eric Usher. A visitor named Alan Hacker finds out about the doctor's eeevil experiments w/ life-after-death, and the women -test subjects- locked in his dungeon. Hacker winds up listening to Usher's long-winded explanation, complete w/ lengthy (we're talking about 30 minutes of recycled footage here!), unnecessary flashback sequences from the first ORLOFF film! This movie is lazy filmmaking at it's most ridiculous! Let's face it, Vernon isn't the most dynamic actor, and listening to him drone endlessly on about nothing, is like being staked to an ant hill! My god! DR. ORLOFF is a great movie, so I'll just watch that instead of this cinematic whale turd!...

Simply Terrible 16 Feb. 2002
By Dr. Freeman - Published on
Format: DVD
Anyone who has read my reviews or seen my listmania list knows im a huge fan of gothic horror. As for this one, save your money for something better. The dubbing was horrific and i had a hard time understanding what the characters were saying. The movie was hard to follow (perhaps because i could'nt understand what was being said) and very slow moving. It was very hard to get through this one.
