The Masque of the Red Death

86 minutes

Roger Corman's 1964 adaptation of the Edgar Allan Poe story is a work of consummate imaginative power and originality. In medieval Italy, the devil-worshipping Prince Prospero (Vincent Price) abducts an innocent village girl (Jane Asher) and tries to interest her in his diabolical goings-on while the plague rages outside his castle. This is both beautiful and horrifying, with a fine sense of ambiguity and a wealth of subtleties.
