"The Masque of the Red Death" has actually been adapted five times for the screen. Roger Corman's 1964 version is the only one I've seen and it was great. Corman actually directed eight Poe movies that are really, really good. Very different from the stuff he later produced and is best known for. You should check those out if you haven't watched them yet. Here's a link with some information:

Books of Blood by Clive Barker are spectacular. I agree about the ending of the midnight meat train. The story as a whole does require more suspension of believe than usual but it is wonderfully visual.
