The Masque of the Red Death

Just a great movie. Over half a century on, it still holds up. The score, the set design, the costume, the scares, Vincent Price’s performance, all fantastic.

I remember when I watched this as a wean, it always scared me the old woman rolling over all bloody, her eyes wild. It’s still ghastly now.

This edition of the film was restored and uncensored, and I wondered before seeing it if would be noticeable in a way that was distracting, but I needn’t have fussed. It was just it’s beautiful, colourful self.

A classic.
