Storyboard Text

  • A disease called the "Red Death" has struck the country. The disease causes dizziness and bleeding of the pores. The people try to take refuge from the disease in an abbey.
  • Prince Prospero and his friends are partying while they try to avoid the Red Death. Prince Prospero is conflicted as to if he should face the Red Death or run away, as he is now.
  • While everyone is partying and forgetting about the Red Death, the clock in the last room makes an ominous chime. This worries everyone because they are reminded of the Red Death, but they quickly go back to partying.
  • A masked figure appears and everyone trembles in fear except for Prince Prospero.
  • Who dares? Who dares insult us with this blasphemous mockery? Seize him and unmask him that we may know whom we have to hang at sunrise, from the battlements!
  • Prince Prospero chases after the masked figure in an attempt to kill it and ends up at the seventh room.
  • Prince Prospero confronts the masked figure in the seventh room. He screams, and drops the dagger to the ground, dead.
  • And now was acknowledged the presence of the Red Death. He had come like a thief in the night. And one by one dropped the revellers in the blood-bedewed halls of their revel, and died each in the despairing posture of his fall.
