    Part of Weekend Classics: Vincent Price. Showtimes posted the Monday prior to opening.

    Prince Prospero (Vincent Price), a Satan worshipper, savagely razes a local village and then invites area nobility to his castle to quarantine themselves from a supposed plague referred to as The Red Death. The atmosphere turns debaucherous and sadistic as Prospero toys with an innocent village girl (Jane Asher), but a strange red-draped figure walks the land, seeking to teach Prospero a lesson. A phenomenal color palette highlights Roger Corman's fantastic re-telling of Edgar Allen Poe's classic short story.
