Project summary

"The Fall Of The House Of Usher" is an Audio Drama adaptation of the classic short story of the same name by Edgar Allan Poe. This adaptation stays true to Poe's original vision with only minor changes in dialogue. The script consists of four speaking roles; Roderick Usher, Madeline Usher, the family Doctor and the Narrator who is an un-named childhood friend of Roderick. The Audio Drama will have the same feel and style of the classic Old Time Radio shows.

This Audio Drama is the first in a series of planed Macabre Mansion Original recordings. Our goal is to produce and preserve significant works of classic literature in an audio theater format, and provide the widest possible access and exposure to these great classic works.


Jim O'Rear as "Roderick Usher"

Jim has been involved in the entertainment industry for over twenty-five years. Trained in New York at The American Academy Of Dramatic Arts, he has worked steadily in film, television, and theatre as an actor, stuntman, and special make-up effects artist on such projects as Day Of The Dead, Star Trek 4, The Vampire Wars, Lethal Weapon 3, Cop & 1/2, Psycho Beach Party, Evita, Little Shop Of Horrors, No Retreat No Surrender 3, Mortal Kombat: Conquest, and many more with actors including Martin Sheen, Burt Reynolds, Mel Gibson, Amanda Plummer, Maximillian Schell, Robert Englund, Jon Voight, Chris Sarandon, Kane Hodder, and others.

John Billingsley as "The Doctor"

Probably best known in Science Fiction circles as the Denobulan, Dr. Phlox on Star Trek: Enterprise, John has a seemingly countless list of credits that include; "The Others", "Stargate SG1", "The Nine", "Grey's Anatomy", "24", "True Blood" and "2012".

Bonita Friedericy as "Madeline Usher"

Best known to fans of NBC's "Chuck" as "General Beckman", Bonnie has an extensive list of credits that include a drug addled alien spotter in "Alien Raiders", a sadistic ER nurse in "Scrubs", mother of a werewolf in "CSI", "My Name Is Earl", "The Nine", "The West Wing", "Monk", "Christmas With The Kranks" and "Star Trek: Enterprise".

Kevin Sorbo as "The Narrator"

Kevin Sorbo has enjoyed success on television for over 20 consecutive years, a feat rarely accomplished by an actor. Sorbo quickly rose to stardom in the title role of the hit series, "Hercules, the Legendary Journeys". The immense popularity of the 5 initial 2-hour telefilms in 1993 resulted in the launch of a weekly series by 1994. Following the success of "Hercules", Sorbo went on to star in the lead role of "Captain Dylan Hunt" in "Gene Roddenberry's, Andromeda" throughout it's five year run from 2000-2005. In 1997, Sorbo made his feature film debut in "Kull, the Conqueror", a prequel to "Conan, the Barbarian". Other films include, "Walking Tall, the Payback", "Walking Tall, Lone Justice", "Avenging Angel" and many more. Sorbo also did the voice over work on two new video game releases - "The Conduit" and "God of War 3" where he worked with Rip Torn and Malcolm McDowell.

Project Artist

We've commissioned award winning artist Billy Tackett to provide project artwork. Award winning artist Billy Tackett hasn't always been referred to as "The Creepiest Artist In America". With humble beginnings in rural KY, the darkness came a-callin' early on. His fondness for Famous Monsters of Filmland over Little Golden Books hinted at a dark future to come. After publishing over 200 book cover and illustrations he created his signature piece, Zombie Sam, giving birth to his Dead White & Blue series. Those paintings then became the inspiration for the Dead White & Blue Comics graphic novel, scheduled for release in 2010. Billy's ability to bring characters to life on canvas and paper caught the attention of best-selling author Shane Moore who dubbed him "Duco-Letum" (Painter of Death) and named him Official Artist of his Abyss Walker Series. Utilizing his talents in both graphic design and traditional art, Billy has unearthed a line of graphic Ts emblazoned with the denizens of the vast and forbidding wasteland known as his Imagination. Avoid visiting www.BillyTackett.com if you suffer from heart problems, weak stomach, fear of the dark or a shortness of a sense of humor
