With a deadly plague ravaging his Renaissance kingdom, Prince Prospero invites his friends to retire to the protection of his castle for ongoing revels, leaving the peasantry to die.

Compared to some versions, this one I thought was pretty good. The costumes were well done and it was done more in the classic vein of the story. Sure, it doesn't have Vincent Price ;-) but that didn't stop it from being well done and with a lot of emotion. (much better than the one with Frank Stallone!!)
