Red Rag to a Ball

My masque is a vivid diversion
With provision for ev'ry perversion
What color's your coat in?
Vermilion's verboten!
Your host has a fervent aversion.

David Cairns

Vincent Price is Prince Prospero, decadent host of the Masque of the Red Death (Roger Corman, 1964). Our Vincentennial tribute to the movie-master of the morbid will return in December, with more on Red Death, plus Dr. Phibes, Theater of Blood, and more, more, more! In the meantime, stay tuned for a month of November Noir.
