Critic Reviews for The Masque of the Red Death
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.
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.
