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. But fate is not so easily escaped by the debauched nobility. This film is Roger Corman's second adapation of Poe's story, a remake of the earlier version starring Vincent Price.

Guilty Pleasure, Edgar Allan Poe, and Adrian Paul
13 December 2006 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie for two reasons: I love Edgar Allan Poe and Adrian Paul. In the first place, this film is a remake of the Vincent Price film, but it is not close to Poe's short story about Prince Prospero who locks all of his aristocratic friends in his castle for all night partying and debauchery while keeping a village plague out to the poor villagers. He has his men round up the most beautiful young women in the town and he falls in love and in lust with the lovely, pure Julietta. She, of course, wants nothing to do with him and his determination to win her over while keeping the plague and the poor out drives him into insanity leading to his fall. The movie is guilty pleasure right up there with "Embrace of the Vampire" and "Nine and a Half Weeks." There are scenes involving incest between Prospero and his beautiful sister (played by the daughter of Penny Marshall and Rob Reiner, Tracy Reiner) that are not really that sexy or even remotely close to being shocking like the incestuous scenes in "Caligula." Adrian Paul, however, is the main reason I saw this film: I mean, come on, who could possibly resist looking at this incredibly gorgeous example of a man? His scenes with the sexy Claire Hoak are passionate and I for one wish I was in her shoes as he tries to seduce and win her over. The film is guilty pleasure at its finest for those who are looking to find a film that is naughty while at the same time not wanting to be shocked or grossed out.
