Roderick Usher, your family is a collection of stunted hearts whose time has come — Verna.
She’s coming for them all in Mike Flanagan’s latest BC-filmed horror series The Fall of the House of Usher streaming October 12th on Netflix.
In this wicked series based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe, ruthless siblings Roderick (Bruce Greenwood) and Madeline Usher (Mary McDonnell) have built Fortunato Pharmaceuticals into an empire of wealth, privilege, and power.
But past secrets start coming to light when the heirs to the Usher dynasty start dying at the hands of a mysterious woman (Carla Gugino) from their childhood.

It’s bats**t crazy in the best possible way. It has quite a lot of very dark humor, but also really touches the soul . . .There is a fantastical supernatural element to the story, and [Verna} is the manifestation of that. You could say she’s the executor of fate or the executor of karma.– Carla Gugino to Netflix’s Tudum.
Carl Lumley as attorney C. Auguste Dupin, who dedicates his life to taking down “the Usher crime family”.
