The Fall of the House of Usher: Mike Flanagan’s tribute to Edgar Allan Poe, even in the titles

Netflix has less time to include in its catalog the case of the House of Usher, the new horror series by Mike Flanagan, whose plot adapts the classic story of Edgar Allan Poe.

With a total of eight episodes, the plot of the series begins with the story of a young gentleman who one day receives an invitation from his childhood friend Roderick Usher to come to his old and gloomy mansion.

Things go wrong when the heirs of the Usher family start dying one by one, so Patriarch Roderick Usher has to find the murderer while facing a ghost from his past.

The Netflix series honors the work of Edgar Allan Poe in the titles of its episodes

Mike Flanagan’s new work not only adapts the story of the fall of the House of Usher, but will also be a tribute to much of the work of Edgar Allan Poe.

We have a good example of this in the titles of the eight episodes that make up the Netflix series, since each of them refers to one of the stories of the famous writer, with the exception of the first and last episode, which is a wink to the same story. You can take a look at it below.

These are the episode titles of the Fall of the House of Usher the Midnight Dreary, the Red Death Mask, Murder in the Street Corpse Hall, The Black Cat, The Treacherous Heart, Gold Beetle, the Fountain and the Pendulum and the Raven.

The new Netflix horror series has a cast that includes Bruce Greenwood (the undeniable truth, Doctor Sleep), Carla Gugino (Gunpowder Milkshake, Lisa Frankenstein), Mark Hamill (the Kids in the Hall, The Machine), Mary McDonnell (Fargo, Serious Crimes), Kate Siegel (The Bly Mansion Curse), Zach Gilford (Midnight Mass) and Annabeth Gish (The Hill Residence Curse), among others.
