The Masque of the Red Death

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.

Vincent Price stars in Poe's tale of a prince using his castle as a refuge against the "Red Death" plague that stalks the land.

Cast: Vincent Price, Hazel Court, Jane Asher

A true classic in every ways

Maybe my favorite Corman-Poe entry, along with Ligeia. Cinematography by Nicolas Roeg (who'd go on to become a brilliant director in his own right) makes this easily the handsomest of the series, and of course, Mr Vincent Price is in top form as the deliciously evil Prince Prospero.

This is one of my favourites from Corman's Poe pictures. Definitely worth the watch.
