The Fall of the House of Usher
Jan Svankmajer's recreation of Edgar Allan Poe's classic horror story is as bizarre, surreal and unsettling as you would expect. Without dialog, the soundtrack is filled with groanings, creakings and squeakings from inanimate objects. Human characters are replaced by stop-animated objects like chairs and coffins. The feeling is of decay and unarticulated horror, combined with the surreal replacement of human characters by objects.
In an interview relating to this film, Svankmajer said "For me, objects always were more alive than people. More permanent and also more expressive. They are more exciting for their latent content and for their memories, which far exceed the memories of men. Objects conceal within themselves the events they have witnessed."
