This 19-minute theater-interview with Roger Corman about his 1964 film, The Masque of the Red Death is lusterless. The topic of conversation bounces around very aimlessly, and it's a little frustrating to have to listen to Corman discuss subjects which have nothing to do with the actual filming process of Red Death. It's length is the only reason to give it a second glance. If there are any rabid fans of the film, which certainly is a classic... they might find this a worthwhile special feature on the MGM Midnite Movies Double Feature DVD with The Premature Burial. But, it's no more detailed than Corman's interview for Burial. And in that case, I'd have to recommend Corman Unearths Premature Burial above Behind the Masque.
For a documentary, I give it a bronze star.
