The Masque Of The Red Death (M)

Prince Prospero (Vincent Price) and Jane Asher (Paul McCartney’s then muse) retreat to his palatial castle to survive the coming plague. All manner of decadence and surreal trials ensue.

The definitive Edgar Allen Poe adaption (and best Roger Corman film) looks sumptuous and reverberates with a pantheon of moral and philosophical questions.

Epic filmmaking.
