Perhaps the best of Roger Corman’s Edgar Allan Poe cycle of films, THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH made great use of a young Nicolas Roeg’s cinematography and some wonderfully garish set design to create what was truly a nightmare come to life. Vincent Price is wonderfully subdued as the preening Satanist Prince Prospero, and the figure of death (stealing liberally from Bergman’s THE SEVENTH SEAL) is unforgettable.
