August 18, 2008
It's not precisely the Edgar Allan Poe short story that emerges in House of Usher, but it's a reasonably diverting and handsomely mounted variation.
September 25, 2007
Corman's filmmaking runs on unchanneled energy and apocalyptic emotions; his is an art without craft.
February 9, 2006
The sickly decadence and claustrophobia of the Usher household is admirably evoked by Floyd Crosby's 'Scope photography and Daniel Haller's art direction.
May 10, 2005
Under the low-budget circumstances, Vincent Price and Myrna Fahey should not be blamed for portraying the decadent Ushers with arch affectation, nor Mark Damon held to account.

Vincent Price starts his scary-reign in colourful gothic horror style.
October 31, 2013
This film set the template for the Poe-Corman-Price series with its literate script, Corman's effective direction, Price's immersive emoting and brilliant employment of light and color.
October 22, 2013
A hallucinatory swirl of a movie that has the feel of an especially sharp nightmare.
October 6, 2013
Lavishly produced and visually gorgeous (thanks to the atmospheric photography of Floyd Crosby), Corman's gothic creepfest is still scary after all these years.
October 6, 2013
The film is riddled with strangeness and decay, which more than compensate for its clunky moments.
August 23, 2013
A slim, measured, confined piece with just four actors, Corman's film is elevated not just by Vincent Price but by the opulent visuals and moods the director manages to conjure up on his low budget.
