The Masque of the Red Death (1964)
My favourite horror film as a child and
the most poetic, beautiful (with stunning set designs and shot by
Nicolas "Don't Look Now" Roeg) and terrifying (feudalism becomes modern
neo-feudalism) of Corman's Poe adaptations. Contains nods to other Poe
works including The Pit and the Pendulum, The Cask of Amontillado, The
Raven and Hop-Frog. Vincent Price at his most despicable and decadent.
ridiculous that The Masque of the Red Death is still not available as a
UK Blu-Ray - this was the German Koch Media Blu and the picture and
sound quality was great.
