Netflix has dropped a brand new The Fall of the House of Usher clip from the upcoming supernatural thriller, which hails from The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan. The series will be available for streaming on October 12.
The video offers a new look at Carla Gugino‘s mysterious character, who meets one of Frederick Usher’s children to warn him about the consequences of his desires and actions. Gugino’s look in the clip also seemingly serves as a clever callback to Flanagan’s 2017 thriller film Gerald’s Game. The film saw the acclaimed actress playing a woman who gets left handcuffed to the bed after her husband suffers a heart attack during erotic role play.
