I like Poe, I didn't know there was a move for Fall of the House of Usher. I'll have to check it out.

Strangely, I have no memory of seeing this movie. But apparently I watched it in class. But since the class was early, early in the morning, I probably watched without perceiving ... which could mean any number of dark, paranoid subliminal messages were implanted in my brain.
