For how popular The Fall of the House of Usher is, it is quite a strange story. Poe guides us through a fever-dream where rather than ghosts or things of that nature haunting an old house, the house itself exudes menace that entrances our characters.

Without deviating too far from the story, we discuss abstract art, the fall of the aristocracy, fungi, and the Castlevania video games.
