The Masque of the Red Death Reżyseria Roger Corman

Recenzje krytyków

Visually flashy and narratively brazen, an expanded adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s tale of carnal pleasure and immodest desire for immortality… key moment comes when the righteous Francesca, rescued by her lover, bestows a mournful parting kiss on Prospero that suggests she is better off for the sweet perversity he has introduced her to. The gesture illustrates Corman’s boundless talent for never taking himself—or his characters, for that matter—too seriously.

From its initial moments of burning violence until its bloody end, this film perfectly captures why Corman’s Poe era is his best. While the film takes its time to get to the ball, the moment horror fans Poe wait for, it manages, through new imagery, to put forward a political interpretation of the tale.
