In the short story and movie of The Fall of The House of Usher portray similarities but also differences that I liked and disliked. In the story and movie they both portrayed how creepy and eerie looking the mansion was, from the cracks in house to each individual bricks. As well as the dead vegetation, black tarn and fog surrounding the house. Just like in the story, the movie portrayed how Madeline and Roderick are confined to the mansion. In the movie whenever Phillip would mention that he was leaving and taking Madeline with her, the house would shake or tremble or begin to fall apart. Another similarity that I liked was that Madeline was the strong one, she broke out of a tomb in both the story and movie representing how strong she is.
