The House Of Usher (clip) Kratky Film Prague
As Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher" is read by a narrator, scenes that create impressions of the story appear on the screen in both live-action and animation. The live-action sequences are devoid of actors. Rather, tilt-angle shots of the haunted house, chairs inside it falling down and doors opening on their own create suspense and illuminate the drama that is being narrated. In the animated sequences, which use stop-action photography, amorphous images take on shapes to accompany the narration of Poe's spine-tingling story. Produced by Kratky Film Prague. 16 minutes, B/W.
