  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

When Roderick Usher is found guilty for the brutal murder of his wife, he is immediately branded insane and sent to the county lunatic asylum.

Once inside the padded cell, he finds himself at the mercy of Dr Calahari, whose mind-blowing shock treatment gives rise to a series of bizarre and nightmarish adventures.

As Roderick undergoes mind bending therapy, Dr Calahari and the beautiful but strange Nurse Smith, gradually unravel the horrible truth behind the Louse of Usher.

The director of Tommy and Women In Love returns in full force to inject his special brand of outlandish humour into this classic Edgar Allan Poe tale.
