This is going to be so good!!

There is a limited series coming to Netflix, and it’s going to be based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe.

They are calling it a horror drama miniseries, and I’m wicked ready to binge watch the entire thing!

According to Variety, this series:

“follows ruthless siblings Roderick (Bruce Greenwood) and Madeline Usher (Mary McDonnell), who have built Fortunato Pharmaceuticals into an empire of wealth, privilege and power. But past secrets come to light when the heirs to the Usher dynasty start dying at the hands of a mysterious woman from their youth.”


Oooh! The hairs on the back of my neck just stood up!!

This new series is the brainchild of Mike Flanagan, who directed The Haunting of Hill House and Doctor Sleep.


Flanagan will direct the first 4 episodes, with Michael Fimognari (To All the Boys: Always and Forever) directing the remaining episodes.

It’s batshit 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, cast The Fall of the House of Usher

You’re probably wanting to know the name of this limited series.

It is based on the Edgar Allan Poe short story by the same name: The Fall of the House of Usher.


It is going to find its home on Netflix, so it’s time to re-up that membership!!

The Fall of the House of Usher will drop onto the streaming service October 12th — just in time for the Halloween season.


There hasn’t been a trailer released for this show — yet.

We will let you be one of the first to catch the sneak peak first trailer when it becomes available.
