The reviews are in and Netflix has a horror hit on its hands with The Fall of the House of Usher. The show is “a gleefully terrifying take on Edgar Allen Poe,” says The Guardian, while Rolling Stone says it’s “a literary orgy of death”, which we think is a compliment. Variety says it’s “gruesome”, Metro says it’s “gripping” and IGN says it “is some of Flanagan’s best work”.

Given that the Flanagan in question is Mike Flanagan of The Haunting of Hill House fame, it was never likely to be a dud. But the reviews are particularly delighted here. Rolling Stone says it’s like a more highbrow American Horror Story that has a lot in common with the brilliant The Haunting of Bly Manor. Where that was a mashup of multiple books by Henry James, this time the monstrous mash is made from the works of Edgar Allen Poe.
