A dangerous plague has struck the land. Prince Prospero, seeking to avoid the “Red Death,” has locked himself away in his abbey. He invites a group of nobles to his haven for protection, ordering them to attend a masked ball. The event takes places within seven rooms of the abbey, each decorated with a different color. Amid the revelry and debauchery, a mysterious figure dressed all in red enters each of the rooms in turn, catching Prospero’s attention. But Prospero’s encounter with the cloaked figure has dire consequences.

This tale of depravity and death is yet another brilliant example of the dark mind of Edgar Allan Poe, master of the macabre.

    " Quite relevant in our time, I feel as if people sometimes say "Let's have a party as the world burns." Moneyed indivduals don't feel this economic meltdown, so let them have their parties. A plague is a bit different but not so far away. "

    " This is one of the spookiest Poe stories in my opinion. The atmosphere is completely eerie, and his description is so accurate that you can actually hear the clock ringing in the back of your head. It's a really great story! "

    " I read this in school. It was very disturbing, as is most of Poe's works. "
