Screening: The Masque of the Red Death

Short url:

It’s hard to party in the times of COVID, so in lieu of a monthly social we will be putting on a Halloween online screening of The Masque of the Red Death. This is an admittedly rather silly 1960s genre-horror adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s classic tale of how the ruling classes behave during epidemics (with Prince Prospero played by Vincent Price) , and how their cruelty will lead to their ferocious comeuppance, cloaked in red. We’ll also be playing a little contribution by Anne Boyer on Poe’s tale and the current pandemic. And afterwards we will be chattering and nattering away on zoom, over a few beers. Do come and watch with us! Link here.

Friday, 30 October, 2020 - 18:00 to 20:00
