The Masque Of The Red Death (1964) Satan-worshiper Prince Prospero invites several dozen of the local nobility to his castle for protection against an oncoming plague, the Red Death. Prospero orders his guests to attend a masked ball and, amidst a general atmosphere of debauchery and depravity, notices the entry of a mysterious hooded stranger dressed all in red. Believing the figure to be his master, Satan, Prospero is horrified at the revelation of his true identity.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Francesca: Is there anything to fear in that room? Prospero: The uninvited have much to fear.
  • Prospero: God's dead! Satan killed him!
  • Prospero: The Red Death is laying waste to the countryside! Scarlatti: The Red Death? I beg you, Prospero, sanctuary! Prospero: This is no church!
  • Prospero: That cross you wear around your neck; is it only a decoration, or are you a true Christian believer? Francesca: Yes, I believe - truly. Prospero: Then I want you to remove it at once! And never to wear it within this castle again! Do you know how a falcon is trained my dear? Her eyes are sown shut. Blinded temporarily she suffers the whims of her God patiently, until her will is submerged and she learns to serve - as your God taught and blinded you with crosses.
  • Francesca: You had me take off my cross because it offended... Prospero: It offended no one. No - it simply appears to me to be discourteous to... to wear the symbol of a deity long dead.
Movie Trivia:
  • Roger Corman and Daniel Haller were able to make this film look more opulent than earlier productions by using the sets left from Becket (1964).
  • This was Roger Corman's first film shot in England.
  • Roger Corman shot this film in England to take advantage of British tax laws. By making this a British production with a British crew, the production got a government subsidy.
  • Hop Toad's wife, Esmeralda, was played by Verina Greenlaw who was only a child at the time. Her dialog was looped by an adult actress.
  • Roger Corman had originally wanted this to be his second "Poe" picture following the success of House of Usher (1960). He passed it over because he felt that certain plot elements were too close to Ingmar Bergman's recent Det sjunde inseglet (1957).
