Usher is a 2004 film written and directed by Roger Leatherwood.[1] It is loosely adapted from the short story "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allan Poe. It tells the story of a young hitman who falls on hard times and gets a job in a movie theatre. The theatre seems to have a personality of its own and the hitman, named Ash, finds himself losing his personality as he falls into a day-to-day work routine.

The feature film premiered at the 2004 Telluride Indie Film Festival (now defunct) and won Best Feature. Additionally, Thomas Alexander[2] won the award for "Best Actor in a Feature" from Wicked Pixel's 2004 "Cinema Edge" awards and was reviewed by Film Threat magazine (online) and Shock Cinema.[3]

Since November 2009 the film has been being posted in short non-sequential segments, one a week, by ArtOverLife Studios.[4]

Roger Leatherwood directed the short animated film "Lieing Man"[5] in 2008.
