Beautiful to watch, but... I assumed that Edgar Allan Poe's highly descriptive and imaginary tales would benefit from a visualized adaptation like this, but the narrative aspect really suffers. Although I have not seen many silent adaptations of his works, silent film may not be the best medium. His tales are best read and visualized in the mind. A film of his works could use a little more darkness, horror and tension.

Yeah @TheMajor! Look what the trivia of IMDb says "Luis Buñuel, who was Assistant Director, quit the picture after clashing with producer/director Jean Epstein over Epstein's decision to basically ignore Edgar Allan Poe's story". Beautiful and dark soundtrack though!

Not to be confused with The Fall of the House of Usher (1928)
