The Fall of the House of Usher 1950
70 mins United Kingdom Director. Ivan Barnett
The only film awarded an 'H' (for Horrific) certificate by the British censor in 1950, and notably featuring the screen debut of award-winning actress Gwen Watford, this little-known Poe adaptation was shot on a shoestring around the seaside town of Hastings. Despite its tiny budget, the film still generates atmospheric moments of weirdness and tension.
