Storyboard Text

  • Welcome my friends. Come and stay in my abbey. You will be safe from the Red Death in here!
  • We have been secluded in here for 5 or 6 months now. I shall host a masquerade of grand extravagance!
  • Look! A masked figured! What a terrible sight; he looks like death! He must be evil...
  • Prince Prospero invited his friends to his home to protect them from the disease, called the Red Death, that was ravaging the city. His home was very bizzare and built with seven suites, each one decorated in a different color.
  • The seventh one was decorated in all black excpet for the windows- they were a blood red. It had a grand ebony clock in it that rang at every hour. This frightened the people. Everyone was afraid of this room.
  • So the guests had a magnificent masquerade ball. The only time the people were not laughing or smiling was when the clock announced a new hour.
  • Every hour that the the clock struck in the black suite, the dancing ceased and everyone was terrified. Once the clock rung at midnight, all of the dancers noticed a horrible masked figure.
  • Prince Prospero demanded the figure be unmasked and hanged, but no one could do it. Prince Prospero then ran after the masked figure with a dagger as he walked through the suites. The masked figure turned around suddenly when he reached the black room.
  • Prince Prospero then fell to the floor in death. The other party-goers ran into the room and discovered a supernatural sight... the mask had no one behind it. One by one the masked figure killed them. Eventually all that was left was the Red Death and decay.
