Audience Reviews for The Masque of the Red Death

Price is at his most diabolical here, while the stunning sets, costumes and cinematography help create an entrancing Gothic atmosphere in this which is most certainly the best adaptation made by Roger Corman of a Poe story.

Price is really in his element here, playing a sadistic prince hellbent on bringing pain and suffering to his loyal subjects. (1964)

I don't know if there's a 1989 version, but I'm writing about the 1964 movie starring Vincent Price. Price is an evil ruler who torments people, he's a devil worshiper who thinks he can do what ever he wants and nothing bad will happen to him. Well, you can guess how that ends, but it's a pretty interesting movie anyway, I enjoyed it.

Vincent Price at his most malicious, gives one of his greatest performances as the evil tyrant Prince Prospero, a devil worshiper who enjoys the company of the sweet Jane Asher and the luscious Hazel Court. One of the best written, performed and staged Poe adaptations.
