The classic Poe story “Fall of the House of Usher” reimagined as a modern-day psychological thriller, Lady Usher has already racked up a lineup of awards including Best Horror Film (MidWest WeirdFest), Best Suspense/Thriller (International Horror Hotel Film Festival), and Best Thriller/Horror Feature (CARE Awards).
The film is available for streaming on many major platforms including Amazon Prime, YouTube, and DirectTV.
To reflect the 19th century roots of the source material, as well as the intimate character-driven feel of the film, I scored the bulk of the film with string quartet. Live strings are wonderfully expressive, and in the context of a suspense film can create some hair-raising effects through bowing technique alone. Acoustic guitar and harp were added to the mix for moments of mystery or tenderness.
The music won Best Original Score at NYCA Film Fest.
