Edgar Allan Poe's HOUSE OF USHER wrapped last night in L.A. This is the 2nd in a series of POE pictures I am doing for Here! TV. The first was Edgar Allan Poe's THE RAVEN which is currently airing. USHER stars FRANK MENTIER (DAYS OF OUR LIVES) as Roderick Usher, JAIMYSE HAFT as Madeline and MICHAEL CARDELLE (AS THE WORLD TURNS) as Victor. JILL JACOBSON (NURSE SHERRI herself!) makes a cameo appearance as a doctor at a mental hospital. The film is produced by JOHN SCHOUWEILER (GODS AND MONSTERS) John co-produced many of my early movies with me such as SORORITY BABES, NIGHTMARE SISTERS and DR. ALIEN. It's great to be working together again. The film was written by a new British screenwriter SIMON SAVORY. HARRY MANFREDINI (FRIDAY THE 13TH) will provide the music score. Expect a release in early 2008.
