Without giving too much away — because trust us, you’ll want to be surprised — the horror drama follows Roderick Usher (Bruce Greenwood), the CEO of a corrupt pharmaceutical company, who must face his shady past when each of his children begin to die in mysterious and brutal fashion.
“It’s batshit crazy in the best possible way,” Carla Gugino told Netflix during production. “It has quite a lot of very dark humor, but also really touches the soul.” In the series, Gugino portrays a demonic shape-shifter named Verna, whose origins can be traced back to a — let’s just say — very famous Poe character. “There is a fantastical supernatural element to the story, and she is the manifestation of that.” she added, “You could say she’s the executor of fate or the executor of karma.”
The series was created by Mike Flanagan. Loosely based on the short story of the same name and other works by Edgar Allan Poe.
‘The Fall of the House of Usher’ on Netflix on October 12, 2023.
