Starring Izabella Miko (Upcoming The Spiderwick Chronicles, "Deadwood," Coyote Ugly), Austin Nichols ("Deadwood," Wimbledon) and Beth Grant (Flags of our Fathers, Factory Girl, Little Miss Sunshine), The House of Usher tells the story of a wealthy New England family with a mysterious legacy.
“The House of Usher updates Edgar Allen Poe's short story and introduces this classic to a new generation of fans,” says Marc Hirshberg, COO of THINKFilm. “A well-crafted, intense thriller, this film will captivate its audience from start to finish.”
Three years after her lover, Rick Usher, and her best friend, Maddy Usher, suddenly disappeared from her life, Jill Masters receives a phone call with news of Maddy's death. Her last wish was for Jill to attend her funeral. Conflicted, Jill returns to Usher House where her former love affair with Rick, Maddy's twin brother, is rekindled.
Jill soon learns that Rick suffers from the same malady that robbed his twin sister of her life. Undeterred by the family caretaker's menacing warnings, Jill's feelings for Rick and her curiosity about the house intensify until the secret of the house of Usher is exposed.
