Perhaps the best of the Poe-Corman-Price pics, with Vincent delivering a potent performance as Prince Prospero.

Ratcheting up the aristocratic decadence of the Poe story and throwing in some satanism for good measure.

[Producer-director Roger] Corman does the best work of his career, aided by the wonderful cinematography of Nicolas Roeg.

If you die having seen only one Vincent Price movie, you could do worse than to have it be Masque.... Corman's most opulent and visually impressive Poe picture, and his grimmest.

Price ... is at his most deliriously malevolent.

In adapting Poe's short story to the screen, Corman adds much material, including a romance, some Satanism, and a subplot with a dwarf.

Creepy, stylish Corman horror; it's silly, but it's a lot of fun.
| Original Score: 3/5

Due specific praise is the simple look of the movie, as if a meagre budget and disrespected genre were no impediment to making a visually arresting movie.

Probably Corman's best film. Certainly his best-looking.

The best thing about the film is Vincent Price's absolutely diabolical performance...
