Product Description

Ryan Usher (Rufus Swart) and his fiancée Molly (Romy Windsor) are on their way to visit Ryan's uncle Roderick (Oliver Reed) when two ghosts appear suddenly in front of their car and they crash. Molly wakes several hours later to learn from Roderick that Ryan is in hospital and cannot be seen. Staying with Roderick, Molly learns of the bad luck that has dogged the Usher family for years, and becomes curious as to why Ryan's older brother, Walter (Donald Pleasance), has been locked away for fifteen years.

Format: VHS Tape
This is A Terrible Version of The Usher Story.Its Dull and Violent which makes it lose any impact it may have had along the way.Oliver Reed is One of My Favourite Actors but even this is a low point for him.

This film is a simply glorious treat for all who have a taste for Victorianesque costumes and sets - especially 1980s style Victorianesque!
Watching this, I was treated to seeing the pivotal character, Molly, in a long flowing nightgown simply saturated with lacey frills - wearing attractive pastel bedjackets and other excessively befrilled garb - and also to atmospheric, sumptuous background sets including fabric-beswathed and decorated femminine furniture of all types, occasionally tinted with pretty colours, and frequently adorned with simulations of roses!
Other characters wear a range of showy costumes, too, and their ranks include a housekeeper who's evocatively turned out in a totally black outfit, with a prim governess collar and complete Victorian governess air.
Apart from this, the plot is constantly engaging enough, and there's plenty of suspenseful moments and touches of gorey terror -
before a dramatic finale.
I liked this film. I would recommend it to those who appreciate atmosphere, the romantic look, Victoriana and the 1980s.
