The Masque of the Red Death + short

Roger Corman • USA/UK 1964 • 1h29m • DCP • 15 – Contains moderate horror and violence
Cast: Vincent Price, Hazel Court, Jane Asher, David Weston, Patrick Magee.
In Roger Corman's wonderfully stylish horror, the always wonderful Vincent Price is Prince Prospero, a 12th-century Italian despot who lives for his one true love...Satan! After jailing two locals, Ludovico and Gino, for defying his harsh tax laws, Prospero meets the beautiful Francesca (Jane Asher), the daughter of Ludovico and the fiancee of Gino. She comes to him to plead for mercy, but Prospero tells her that only one will be spared and toys with her emotions for his private amusement. When Prospero learns that the Red Death is sweeping the village, he locks himself and his followers in his castle where they continue their decadent parties. But soon a mysterious figure dressed in red robes arrives...

    I really enjoyed this classic 1964 epic movie. Both Vincent Price, Hazel Court and Jane Asher where fabulous. I enjoyed the choreography, and the dance scenes where excellent, I recommend this movie to everyone.

    I am looking forward to the film. When I was on the Film House website, I discovered that the 1971 horror classic Daughters of Darkness is on 11 January. How about making it an event?
