Quotes:
From House of Usher (1960)
Roderick Usher: Odors assail me constantly, and as I've said, sounds of any degree whatsoever inspire me with terror.
Philip Winthrop: That's why your servant asked me to remove my boots?
Roderick Usher: Yes... and even so I could hear you coming: every footstep, every rustle of your clothes. I could hear your horse approaching, hear the clatter of his hooves across the courtyard, your knock - the grating of the door bolt was like a sword-stroke to my ears...
Roderick Usher: [lowers his voice to a whisper] I can hear the scratch of rat claws in the stone walls!
Roderick Usher: Mr. Winthrop, three-quarters of my family have fallen into madness, and in their madness have acquired a, a superhuman strength... so that it took the power of many to subdue them.
