The Fall of the House of Usher

A film by Jean Esptein
Starring Jean Debucourt, Marguerite Gance

Having indirectly caused the death of his beloved, Roderick Usher stubbornly tries to resurrect her spirit by devoting himself to painting and sculpture. Director Jean Epstein studiously avoids cheap shocks in this Edgar Allen Poe adaptation of hereditary madness, conveying the twilight zone between life and death with tightly-controlled, spookily-subtle technique.
