The Fall of the House of Usher podcast

Richard Matheson, who wrote this film, wrote I AM LEGEND, which was adapted into The Last Man on Earth (also starring Vincent Price) and The Omega Man, starring Charlton Heston.

The Paintings of Burt Shonberg are my (Matt’s) absolute favorite thing about this movie

Even though this podcast was about The Fall of the House of Usher, there’s some brief discussion of “The Raven,” starring Price, Karloff, and Peter Lorre. Let us know on Twitter if you think we should cover this film. In the spirit of the Raven, here are the two wizard battles we referenced in the podcast
