Mike Flanagan's The Fall of the House of Usher is now streaming on Netflix, and just in case the title didn't give it away, the bleak Edgar Allan Poe-based series deals with the decline of the very wealthy, very powerful and very corrupt Usher family.

Spoilers follow.

Though this probably won't be considered too much of a spoiler since it's confirmed in the opening few minutes of the show, said family members don't just lose their power and social standing, but their lives - in various creative, gruesome, and (mostly) well-deserved ways.

The facilitator of the Ushers' grim demises is the mysterious Verna (Carla Gugino), who is ultimately revealed to be a manifestation of The Raven from Poe's most famous poem. She is present for, and in some cases orchestrates, the deaths of siblings Madeline and Roderick Usher, his five children, and beloved granddaughter, and some of the kills are downright brutal.

Though the Ushers' fates appeared to be sealed as soon as Roderick and Madeline made their bargain with Verna, she does seem to offer certain characters a way out if they make a different decision - although this may have simply been to spare them a more painful end, since The Raven doesn't seem to have much choice in the matter (she clearly doesn't want to kill Lenore, for example, but must do her "job").

In a new promo video (via FearHQ.com), the cast of TFOTHOU talk about their respective characters' death scenes, and whether they feel they deserved their fates.

Check out the video below, and let us know if you think Verna could have taken it a bit easier on any of the Ushers in the comments.

"Ruthless siblings Roderick and Madeline Usher have built Fortunato Pharmaceuticals into an empire of wealth, privilege and power. But past secrets come to light when the heirs to the Usher dynasty start dying at the hands of a mysterious woman from their youth," reads the official synopsis.

Flanagan has assembled a typically stacked cast, including Bruce Greenwood, Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell, Carl Lumbly, Mark Hamill, Michael Trucco, T’Nia Miller, Paola Nuñez, Henry Thomas, Samantha Sloyan, Rahul Kohli, Kate Siegel, Sauriyan Sapkota, Zach Gilford, Willa Fitzgerald, Katie Parker, Malcolm Goodwin, Crystal Balint, Aya Furukawa, Daniel Jun, Matt Biedel, Ruth Codd and Annabeth Gish.

Kyleigh Curran, Igby Rigney and Robert Longstreet also star.

The Fall of the House of Usher marks the fifth Netflix series for Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy under their Intrepid Pictures overall deal, after The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass, and recent Christopher Pike adaptation The Midnight Club.

Mike Flanagan and Michael Fimognari each directed four episodes.

Kinda feel like if you’re making an article about something, you should write what they say rather than just posting a link to a video.

@MikeyL - They all say, "I died, lol."

The Ape death scene was my favourite.

@marvel72 - That part was so intense cause you pick up on what’s going to happen long before it does. Some of the deaths were very creative. I also thought the mirror scene was really unique.

Halfway through but I’m really enjoying it.

Not my favorite from Flanagan but still a good time. Made me want to go back and read EAP.
