Prince Prospero has been keeping people inside his abbey to help them avoid the Red Death. He decides to have a masked ball for everyone.
Prince Prospero creates seven different chambers based on different colors. The guests explore the rooms and avoid the black chamber. They hear a clock chime every hour from the black chamber which halts the party for a moment.
The clock strikes midnight and this caused for silence during the party once again. A masked figure makes its way to the party.
The masked man arrives to the party and looks like someone who has the Red Death. In anger, the prince follows the masked man to to the black chamber.
As Prince Prospero reaches the masked man in the last chamber, he falls to his death.
The party guests enter the black chamber and they find that the masked figure was never a person. All of them drop to the floor like Prince Prospero and the clock stopped chiming.
