Fall of the House of Usher Fan Reactions!

Mike Flanagan’s final Netflix series, Fall of the House of Usher, just dropped and it’s a gothic thrill ride!

Mike Flanagan, creator of highly praised series such as The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass, has finally released his final series for Netflix–Fall of the House of Usher– after a long anticipated wait and it’s already surprising fans. Here are some of the best reactions. (We’ll be attempting to keep this spoiler light, but just in case, caution! Spoilers ahead!

Following the Usher family pharmaceutical dynasty, the show’s setting is extremely different from what fans have come to expect of Flanagan’s usual gothic style, but certainly not in a bad way. As many call to mind The Roys from the recently concluded, Succession.

However, fans have not forgiven (nor forgotten), what Mike Flanagan did last time. Or the time before that. Or the time before– the man likes angst, okay? It’s goth.

But that isn’t gonna stop folks from enjoying when Mike Flanagan does Mike Flanagan things.

And, since it’s still the internet, talking about hot people. A lot.

But with a healthy dose of love for the incredible performance of Carla Gugino!

If you’ve been considering watching The Fall of the House of Usher, the reviews are in and the internet agrees: it’s well worth your time! If you love a moody gothic atmosphere with a healthy dose of Succession-adjacent characters getting their comeuppance, let it join your spooky season watchlist is Halloween!
