Netflix Unveils ‘The Fall Of The House Of Usher’ Poster, A Haunting Tale By Mike Flanagan

Prepare for a spine-tingling Halloween as Netflix brings Edgar Allan Poe‘s eerie tales to life with Mike Flanagan‘s chilling new series, The Fall of the House of Usher. This limited 8-episode series, based on multiple works by Poe, is set to premiere on October 12th, 2023, the 5-year anniversary of the release of The Haunting Of Hill House.

“In this wicked narrative, ruthless siblings Roderick and Madeline Usher have turned Fortunato Pharmaceuticals into a realm of opulence and influence. Yet, a mysterious woman from their past unveils long-buried secrets, leading to a series of deaths among the Usher dynasty,” the show’s synopsis teases.

The star-studded ensemble cast features Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell, Carl Lumbly, Mark Hamill, and more. Bruce Greenwood takes on the role of Roderick Usher.

Carla Gugino, known for her roles in Gerald’s Game and The Haunting of Hill House, promises a rollercoaster of dark humor and soul-stirring moments. This marks Mike Flanagan‘s fifth collaboration with Netflix under his Intrepid Pictures deal, following the success of The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass, and The Midnight Club.

Don’t miss this macabre masterpiece, directed by Flanagan and Michael Fimognari, with executive producers including Flanagan, Trevor Macy, Emmy Grinwis, and Michael Fimognari.
