The Masque of the Red Death
Directed by Roger Corman
Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories, THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH is a lavish production from legendary cult director Roger Corman. Vincent Price stars as the evil Prospero, a Prince who has sold his soul and who counts on the promises of the Devil for protection. He hosts incredible, opulent parties for the privileged while the poor die in hovels, starving victims of the Red Death, a devastating plague that is sweeping his lands. Prospero takes a perverse pleasure in the pain and suffering of his supplicants and his friends alike.
A prince terrorizes the local peasantry while using his castle as a refuge against the "Red Death" plague that stalks the land.
Cast: Vincent Price
Really a good movie.
Great movie. One of the best Corman/Price Poe adaptations in the series.
