The Masque of the Red Death

The Masque of the Red Death ★★★½

Between this and Suspira, I am flat out of red for the week. Vincent Price was really effective as a matter of fact worshipper of evil; he gets across the idea that he's more interested in corrupting souls for his master Satan than anything else. He wants you amused by the antics of his court, but only because that's a sign of your corruption.

Beautiful cinematography courtesy of Nicholas Roeg, using beautiful sets courtesy of Becket.
