Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“True to Poe’s short story, more so than many of the films.” BMovieMan.com
“If you’re going to replicate the classics, you better make sure you’ve got a capable cast able to shoulder the load, and no better result could be offered than with Macabre Mansion Presents…that will bring you back to the days of old-time radio presentation. Directed by Kevin Herren and backed by an army of acting talents, ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’– Edgar Allen Poe’s ultraspooky yarn about one of the most ominous residences anyone has ever laid eyes upon – great stuff. Added to this is an adaptation of Poe’s 1843 short story, ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’—an extra bonus for those who got lotsa love for the Poe. Herren should be applauded for the talent that has been assembled here in order to provide an auditory experience that will make any fan of those classic shows very happy…This is the stuff that should be enjoyed in place of the computer, or tablet, or TV, or iWatch…So roll on back to the olden days, kick back, and listen with the lights off…after all, it’s much better in the dark.” DreadCentral.com (4 stars)
