#50: Roger Corman’s House of Usher

A media franchise is born

Initial release: 1960
Director: Roger Corman

In the late 1950s, American International Pictures needed a new shtick after a decade of low-budget B&W horror flicks. So they took a gamble on a big-budget thriller in color that turned out to be a turning point in the studio’s history.
