The Vincent Price Collection – 2020 Reissue 10/03/20


A new BFI restoration of Roger Corman’s color Edgar Allan Poe epic THE MASQE OF THE RED DEATH, photographed by Nicolas Roeg, was so impressive that it justified a reissue. Not only does the image jolt us with its hallucinatory colors, a number of brief (censor?) deletions were reinstated. Jane Asher was never lovelier, and the same goes for the enthusiastically evil Hazel Court! It’s part of a reissue of an older collection: The Fall of the House of Usher, Pit and the Pendulum, The Haunted Palace, Witchfinder General and The Abominable Dr. Phibes. Reviewed by Charlie Largent, on Blu-ray.
